Co-founder and CEO of XO Records, Sal Slaiby, is the new manager for dancehall artiste Shenseea.
Slaiby, who also manages chart-topping multi-award winning Canadian singer The Weeknd, began handling Shenseea’s affairs as far back as in February.
Shenseea in an interview with Observer Online said “Sal heard my music from a mutual friend and loved it and insisted we should meet and have a conversation to express his interest.”
She said the collaboration with Slaiby could be beneficial for her career.
“You can expect everything we’ve been originally doing to be amplified. For the rest, only God knows. I am positive, let’s hope for the best,” Shenseea added.
The Lebanese-born Slaiby co-founded XO Records with The Weeknd, Amir Esmailia and La Mar Taylor. The label is a subsidiary of Universal Music Group and is distributed through Republic Records.
The 41-year-old Slaiby is also founder of SAL & CO, a company which also manages Doja Cat, Bebe Rexha, French Montana, M.I.A., Brandy and Ty Dolla Sign.
