The Metro PCS 5 Borough Takeover Tour stops at the Brooklyn Academy of Music on Tuesday the 10th of March. Dancehall superstar Serani is headlining the show alongside rapper Common and singing sensation Jazmine Sullivan, who is currently heating up radio and charts with Lions Tigers & Bears, following the huge success she had with Bust Your Windows and her Reggae-tinged breakout single Need U Bad.
"It's an honour to be on a bill with such great artists," says Serani, recently signed to Universal Republic Records. "It gives me a chance to introduce myself to their fans as well, so I'll be giving them my all. The shows have been promoting really hard on mainstream radio in New York, so I'm getting a lot of mileage that way also."
The Metro PCS Tour stops at the Prudential Centre in Newark, New Jersey, on March 25th, where Serani will be joined by Alliance colleague Mavado, as well as Akon, Busta Rhymes and Estelle.
Serani performed to rave reviews in Rochester, Albany and LA over the weekend and will be in Houston, Texas this Friday. He just did a collaboration with rapper Chamillionaire and a remix for MIMs' club-banger "Move," and is currently working on his debut album for Universal. Serani's album will be mostly self-produced with one or two tracks produced by US-based producers.
His breakout track "No Games" continues to creep up the Billboard chart and spread across North America, being added to radio stations across the country as well as in Canada. A dance mix of the song is also gaining popularity and has already been added to one mainstream Dance radio station playlist.
