The Australian dance-pop legend has teamed up with Hov’s entertainment hub.
While this is a bit more shocking than Timbaland’s signing, the Roc Nation stable did include The Sugababes back in 2009-10. Minogue joins a label that includes British singer-songwriter Rita Ora and rappers J. Cole and Jay Electronica, among others; Roc Nation also manages Rihanna, M.I.A., and Shakira.
Here’s Roc Nation’s statement, via Jay-Z’s Life + Times blog:
“Roc Nation would like to welcome Aussie singer, recording artist, songwriter, actress and designer Kylie Minogue to the 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.”
