Serani's "No Games" is # 1 on America's reggae iTunes Chart
Alliance star Serani's bonafide hit "No Games" has landed at the #1 spot on America's reggae iTunes Chart for the first time, knocking Bob Marley's timeless classic "Three Little Birds" off the top spot. Having been selling thousands of downloads and ringtones for months, No Games has been flirting with the #1 spot for some time, but now replaces Bob Marley's anthem, that sells an average of 5,500 a week in downloads on iTunes.
"No Games is actually still gaining in spins across the country," said Serani's manager. "This record just won't go away. It’s still getting added to playlists in many states across the country every week so it continues to spread."
Serani recently recorded a remix for No Games with songstress Shontelle, while on tour in the UK. Shontelle scored big in the UK with her recent hit "T-Shirt" and being label mates Universal Music made the match and hooked up the two artists. Universal/Island Records will release the No Games + remix package digitally on July 6th.
"Shontelle was great to work with," said Serani. "She's a very talented songwriter and she has a great personality so the chemistry was good in the studio. The remix is hot."
