R&B Producer Salaam Remi Named Executive Vice President of A&R at Sony Music

One aspect of the ever-changing music industry is the ongoing promotion of creatives into executive roles. With Ne-Yo as the VP of A&R of Motown and The-Dream the VP of A&R of Island Def Jam, the newest promotion goes to popular R&B producer Salaam Remi, who’s been appointed the position of Executive Vice President of A&R at Sony Music. The talented producer will be in charge of all of the A&R departments under Sony’s many logos, which include RCA, Epic, and Columbia Records.

Remi is the mind behind many hip hop and R&B cuts, including Amy Winehouse’s albums ‘Frank’ and ‘Back to Black’, as well as Miguel’s first single ever “All I Want Is You.” Remi’s production credits also include The Fugees (“Fu-Gee-La”), Jazmine Sullivan (“Lions, Tigers, and Bears,” “10 Seconds”), Tamia (“Beautiful Surprise”), many Nas joints (“Made You Look,” “Nasty,”) and Alicia Keys (“Girl on Fire”).
