Roc Nation has released a statement confirming that they have signed legendary pop singer Kylie Minogue to the imprint.
Following the trend of signing cross-genre artists to hip hop imprints and labels, Australian pop icon, Kylie Minogue has signed a deal with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation imprint. This comes on the heels of Jigga inking deals with Meek Mill, Timbaland, Jahlil Beats, and M.I.A. As reported by Life+Times, Roc Nation confirmed the signing, but at this point the details of the partnership are not clear.
The statement went onto announce the signing, which right now does not specify if this is, as with Meek Mill, just a management signing. Detailing Minogue’s accomplishments, the imprint said, “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.”
It’s unclear if you will see a couple guest verses from Jay on a pop track, or any collaborations with Roc affiliates. Late in 2012, YMCMB signed EDM producer/DJs Stafford Brothers and shortly after released the tune “Hello” which featured Lil Wayne and Christina Milian.
