Swedish House Mafia signs with Sal Slaiby (The Weeknd manager)

Legendary trio Swedish House Mafia has hired Wassim “Sal” Slaiby, The Weeknd’s manager, as their manager, Billboard reports.

After the departure of their long-time manager Amy Thomson in 2018, Swedish House Mafia signed a deal with Patriot Management’s Ron Laffitte, with whom the band parted ways late last year.

Recently the Swedish House Mafia also broke off ties with Columbia Records, after signing a deal in February 2019.

The Weeknd is not the only artist on Slaiby’s roster. It includes Doja Cat, French Montana, Bebe Rexha, and Ty Dolla $ign. Variety named Slaiby manager of the year in 2020 and Billboard featured him on the cover of its Change Agents issue in January.

This is the last of a major number of “behind-the-scene” changes; some months ago we have seen the Swedish trio back together in the studio and some of their new music has already been registered online as actual songs.

According to MBW, Republic Records and parent company Universal Music Group (UMG) have launched Universal Arabic Music (UAM) in partnership with successful music manager and entrepreneur, Wassim “SAL” Slaiby. UMG happens to be the publisher of the already listed unreleased Swedish House Mafia tunes.
