Kylie Minogue is the latest artist to sign with Jay-Z’s label, Roc Nation. The Australian pop legend joins a long list of who’s who in the music industry right now, including Rihanna, Solange, Rita Ora, J. Cole, Mark Ronson and M.I.A.
Roc Nation released the following statement about Minogue, saying “We would like to welcome Aussie singer, recording artist, songwriter, actress and designer Kylie Minogue to the Roc Nation family! In a career now spanning 25 years, Kylie has released 11 studio albums, two live CDs, eight live concert DVDs, a greatest hits double album, and multiple video packages. She has released over 50 hit singles worldwide, including the Grammy-winning Come Into My World, and has sold more than 68 million albums worldwide. Needless to say, we’re excited to have Kylie join the Roc fam.”
Kylie has confirmed that she is working on new music and to expect a new song from her ‘soon’. While the pairing seems like a bit of an odd one, let’s remember that Pauly D is signed to G-Unit, folk singer Vanessa Carlton is with Murder Inc. and Limp Bizkit gets paid by Young Money.
Minogue isn’t the only new addition to the Roc Nation family. Producer Timbaland, whose latest piece of work includes Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z’s Suit & Tie, signed to the hip hop label last week.Tweet
