Home Celebrity The Weeknd Changes Talent Agencies, Jumps to CAA, After Grammys, NAACP Snubs

The Weeknd aka Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, is looking to add more days of the week.

The R&B pop star has jumped talented agencies, leaving William Morris Endeavor for Creative Artists Agency.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise. The Weeknd’s hit album “After Hours” was totally snubbed this year by the Grammy Awards and the NAACP Image Awards. The singer and his album were totally overlooked, and it was embarrassing.

So, on to greener pastures.

“Abel, Sal and their team are as ambitious in their thinking as we are, clearly seeing the special opportunities they have, both in building their business to new heights and having a meaningful cultural impact,” CAA’s Christian Carino said in a statement. The Weeknd is managed by Wassim “Sal” Slaiby and Amir “Cash” Esmailian.
