French Montana Signs With WME
French Montana has signed with WME for worldwide representation, Billboard can confirm.
The hip-hop artist is currently enjoying his biggest hit with the infectious track “Unforgettable,” featuring Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee. “Unforgettable” sits at No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100, it’s platinum-certified in the U.S. and its official video, which spotlights the talented youth of Uganda, has more than 140 million hits on YouTube.
The Moroccan-born artist burst onto the scene with his debut 2013 album release Excuse My French, which reached No. 4 on the Billboard 200. He has since earned a hattrick of Grammy nominations for his works “All Day” (best rap song) and “All The Way Up” (best rap song, best rap performance).
Montana is coming off a performance at the BET Awards this past weekend, a prelude to his guest slot on select dates for phase two of The Weeknd’s Legend of the Fall World Tour (the Canadian headliner is also a WME client).
Outside of music, the rapper has made it his personal mission to improve health care for women and children in Uganda. Montana recently donated $100,000 and dedicated his “Unforgettable Dance Challenge” to the Mama Hope organization, which supports global entrepreneurship to help end extreme poverty.
He will continue to be repped by SAL&CO/Maverick.
