Raphael Saadiq Signs with Forward Artist Management

Saadiq has been a monumental force in popular music since he came on the scene with his band Tony! Toni! Toné! Most recently, Saadiq co-wrote and produced both of Beyoncé’s latest singles, “Texas Hold’Em,” this week’s Billboard Hot 100 Chart topper, and “16 Carriages.” Saadiq also won a Grammy last year for Best R&B Song for Beyoncé’s “Cuff It,” a song he co-wrote and produced featured on Renaissance. As a producer and writer, Saadiq has also worked with other superstar artists such as Stevie Wonder, Whitney Houston, Usher, Erykah Badu, Mary J. Blige, Solange, and so many more.

As a solo artist, his latest endeavor is the critically lauded album, Jimmy Lee. Saadiq co-wrote the Oscar nominated song “Mighty River” from the film Mudbound, with Mary J. Blige and Tara Stinson, and at the end of 2023, he revisited Tony! Toni! Toné for the first time in 25 years for a sold-out, national theater tour. Saadiq is represented by Tim Mandelbaum of Fox Rothschild.

Comments Childs: “Raphael is one-of-one. He’s been making history, creating some of the biggest musical moments of the last thirty years. He continues to write and rewrite the playbook on what an elite artist, producer, songwriter, and creative is. The entire FAM team is thrilled to support him and excited to get to work.”

Tyler Childs also manages RZA and The Wu-Tang Clan who launched their residency at the Theater at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas earlier this month, with two more dates scheduled on March 22nd and 23rd, and more to be announced in the coming weeks. The Wu Tang residency, the first ever hip-hop theater Vegas residency, is a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the birth of hip hop. The residency was the brainchild of RZA, who Childs has represented for over 15 years.

The Wu-Tang Clan also recently enjoyed an extraordinary run with Nas on “New York State of Mind Tour,” which was nominated twice for Pollstar’s “Hip-Hop Tour of the Year.” The tour sold out arenas worldwide across 60 dates and 20 countries, including shows at such iconic venues as the Hollywood Bowl, The O2 Arena in London, and Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn.

Other artists managed by Forward Artist Management include Benjamin Booker (managed by Jacob Greene), Tyler Cole, and Sarah Cothran.

Childs previously served as Vice President of A&R/Creative at Sony ATV Music Publishing and worked with a roster of A-list artists and songwriters including Ilsey Juber (Panic at the Disco’s “High Hopes,” Shawn Mendes’ “Mercy,” and Mark Ronson & Miley Cyrus’ “Nothing Breaks Like a Heart”), Walk The Moon’s “Shut Up and Dance,” Imagine Dragons’ “Whatever it Takes,” and Pitbull featuring Ne-Yo’s “Time of Our Lives.” Other notable artists he worked with in this capacity include Clairo, James Blake, Tegan and Sara, and many others.
