Salaam Remi hired as Executive VP of A&R at Sony Music
According to sources close to the action, it is expected that Sony Music will announce Grammy Award winning producer, Salaam Remi, as the Executive VP of A&R at Sony Music. Remi has been an integral part of recent musical projects such as Miguel ("Kaleidoscope Dream"), Nas ("Life Is Good"), Amy Winehouse, Monica, Jazmine Sullivan and The Fugees.
Today it's no secret that labels are tapping into a different talent pool since they started hiring producers such as Chris "Tricky" Stewart (Sr A&R post at Epic Records), No I.D. (EVP of A&R at Def Jam), and last month The-Dream (EVP of A&R for Def Jam).
