Can I monetize a remix? If I have rights?

The question is rather simple. Am I allowed to monetize a remix that I do of another artists' song if said artist gives me full rights to do so?
I understand that the Terms and Agreements states that I am not able to moetize said tracks however, naturally, I assumed that that's because of basic copyright laws. So I wanted tom see if I'm allowed to do it if said copyright issues are omitted?

Thank You!

If the original song was released under a label, then you'd have to receive permissions from the label. However, if the original song was self-released by the original artist, and the original artist gives you permission to monetize the song, then you're more than welcome to monetize your remix of the track.

The only way this would be a problem is if you were to monetize an unofficial remix without the artist's or label's permission. Hopefully this helps! ❤️
