been beating the drum for years that reggae is as the most marketable form of music ... to sell other products ... in existence. Even over it's cousin Hip Hop which is used to sell everything from Sports to Dish Soap.

Trust me she's gettin paid ( In my humble estimate probably in the 6 figure range at least?????) MINIMUM????

I just read and article about her considering legal action. So I don't think she has been paid...yet

6 figures... NOT even close.. just FYI they would have never used the tune without running it through their legal team... not saying they paid or didn't pay just know Reebok isn't doing that kind of foolishness without being legally protected.

does she even own the rights to that song? and sadly ad agencies do stupid @#$%& all the time, often without the legal teams knowledge, so it could be being used without any of her approval...

been beating the drum for years.. classic reggae basslines are an untapped treasure trove for sampling.. nuff anthems can be built off clever sampling of those radics one-drops. especially with the music slowing down..

It's originally a Yellowman/Fathhead track

I bet that the only money Sister Nancy sees from this song is from the dubplates that she has to do of it.....

Kojak/Mother Liza also had a lick of this track in 1982...not sure if it was before or after the Yellowman & Fathead track.

the marriage of reggae and american/ western commercialism is a dystopian nightmare to me....
I cannot quite grasp the commercial mindset unless you are gettin paid for selling shoes or advertising or some other overpriced crap,
such as the boardie Ninja who works for NIKE.
some others strike me as people who sell crap for a living......
as someone who enjoys the music as a consumer and not as an advertising tool my experience can
be greatly harmed by the over-commercialization of my favorite music genre
I like to see the artists I play get paid... I do not agree that they should get paid any way possible.....
look at the mass over-commercialization of hiphop / rap music.......has it made the MUSIC any better........arguably NO!!!

The positive aspects of Jamaican music and culture should at all times be celebrated and acknowledged, and the use of Bam Bam by Sister Nancy in a commercial in the USA definitely points to the mainstream acceptance of Jamaican music forms, as did the accomplishments of Harry Belafonte in 1956 when his album became the first million selling album in music business history. Commercials using the works of Jimmy Cliff, Toots Hibbert and others have for years been making the rounds on mainstream television in the USA. In my view we in Jamaica, and some of our Reggae music friends in the international community, have been too preoccupied with the hype side of this business of music, while not paying sufficient attention to the legal, marketing, business education and other industry developmental needs. Despite all the acclaim and global recognition over more than 50 years, Jamaica is still without a comprehensive national policy on music industry development. It is amazing that we have continued along this path despite the numerous studies and reports on the Jamaican music industry that were conducted by local and international experts.

Strikkly... the Marley clan must make you sick.. Go to visit Nine Mile sometime ... it will make you sick.. why do "these people" want to commercialize on their success? I have no idea.

The question is who owns publishing on that song. especially since it's a derivitave work of a diverative work... Reggae is very hard to license because of all the versioning, adaptations, etc.... The earliest version of th etune it's based off I can think of is Toots' "Bam Bam" which was a Jamaica Festival song
Re: Sister Nancy Reebok commercial

probably one of the many reasons they went with that song...

"if we don't have to pay anyone for the music, we can just pocket that extra cash.....!"

The only thing Sister Nancy's song has in common with the 1966 Festival song by Toots is the title. Both the lyrics and melodies are totally different....

I was happy to hear the song in a different context, particularly mainstream television, only because I was suffering from Bam Bam burnout.
Re: Sister Nancy Reebok commercial

Daniel, I think Nancy took the background "bam bam" from Toot's song and made a new song out of it.
Re: Sister Nancy Reebok commercial

"Bam bam/What a bam bam" <----the only similarities between the two tunes.

My guess is the estate of Winston Riley may claim copyright, if anyone. I would hope by now Muma Nancy would know if her tune paid any royalties, because it's been sampled before.

DUDE, this is a family forum! It's no place to discuss gently stroking the silky smooth buttocks of a nubile young model. I'm shocked! Shocked I tell you! winking smiley
