Singer-songwriter and producer Raphael Saadiq has signed with Tyler Childs at Forward Artist Management. Here’s the latest.

Saadiq has become a monumental force in popular music with his band Tony! Toni! Toné! Most recently, Saadiq co-wrote and produced both of Beyonce’s latest singles, “Texas Hold ‘Em,” which hit the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart and “16 Carriages.” Saadiq also won a Grammy last year for Best R&B Song for Beyonce’s “Cuff It”—a song he co-wrote and produced on Renaissance.

As a producer and writer, Saadiq has also worked for other superstar artists including Stevie Wonder, Whitney Houston, Usher, Erykah Badu, Mary J. Blige, Solange, and so many more.

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

“Raphael is one-of-one. He’s been making history, creating some of the biggest musical moments of the last thirty years,” adds Tyler Childs. “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 22 & 23. More will be announced in the coming weeks. The Wu-Tang residency is a celebration of the 50th anniversary of hip-hop and was the brain child of RZA, who Childs has represented for 15 years.

Other artists managed by Forward Artist Management include Benjamin Booker, Tyler Cole, and Sarah Cothran. Tyler Childs previously served as Vice President of A&R/Creative at Sony ATV Music Publishing, working with a roster of A-list artists and songwriters. They include Ilsey Juber, Shawn Mendes, Mark Ronson, Miley Cyrus, Walk The Moon, Imagine Dragons, and Pitbull.
