UAM-Universal Arab Music

UAM is a partnership between Universal, Republic Records and Wassim Slaiby, with a mission to surface the best Arabic music and make it connect worldwide. UMG is taking UAM’s prospects seriously – at the highest level. Sir Lucian Grainge said of the label: “There is so much talent in this part of the world that with Sal’s incredible experience and intimate knowledge of the MENA region, alongside his track record for helping to break global artists, he will bring a unique vision, strategy and power to Universal Arabic Music.” There’s also SALXCO, under which Slaiby manages or co-manages The Weeknd, Doja Cat, Bebe Rexha, French Montana, Ty Dolla $ign and many more. In a major coup for the business, Slaiby has this year added Swedish House Mafia to his world-beating management roster.
