Reigning princess of Euro-pop Kylie Minogue has officially signed to Jay-Z's record label Roc Nation! According to a statement released by Roc Nation, Minogue will remain on her current label Parlophone for recording purposes, and has signed to the label purely for management services.
"We would like to welcome Aussie singer, recording artist, songwriter, actress and designer Kylie Minogue to the Roc Nation family!" Roc Nation said today. "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, weâ€™re excited to have Kylie join the Roc fam."
As a client of Roc Nation's management team, Kylie will be joining successful artists such as Rihanna, Shakira, Timbaland, M.I.A. and Solange. Fans expect hat the move stems from Kylie's desire to reach new levels of popularity in the USA, a market she hasn't been able to break since the early 2000's.
It has been confirmed that Kylie is set to be releasing a new single "soon". Her new album, the first since 2010's Aphrodite, has been in production since early 2012.
