Rami Yacoub (born January 17, 1975) is a Swedish music producer and songwriter and former member of the successful songwriting/production houses Cheiron Studios and Maratone.

He has worked with acts such as Britney Spears, Nicki Minaj, Madonna, Bon Jovi, Backstreet Boys, One Direction, Westlife, The Saturdays, P!nk, Celine Dion, Enrique Iglesias, Tiesto, Avicii, and NSYNC.


He began his music career at age 13 when he played bass in a band in Stockholm. He wrote many of the band's songs and at age 18, he began doing remixes.

In 1998, he was approached by Max Martin, who, at the time, was looking for a new production partner and was asked to join Cheiron Studios in Stockholm. Their first collaboration produced the hit Brittney Spears single, "Baby One More Time"  which went straight to number one in all of the countries it was released in. He stayed with Cheiron Studios for a further 10 years producing some of the biggest hits and selling over 150 millions records internationally.

In 2001, when Cheiron closed down, Rami and Max opened Maratone Studios and continued to produce more worldwide hits. He left Maratone Studios in 2008 after 10 years, deciding he needed to go his own way and after taking a year off, he put together Kinglet Studios - a production company based in Los Angles with fellow songwriter Carl Falk.
