Jay Z Signs Pop Star
Jay-Z has announced the signing of Pop singer Kylie Minogue to his Roc Nation imprint.
Breaking the news on Life+Times, the company confirmed the signing of the Australian entertainer to the label, though it is unclear if the partnership is strictly for management.
“Roc Nation would like to welcome Aussie singer, recording artist, songwriter, actress and designer Kylie Minogue to the family,” read the statement. “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.”
Minogue, who is signed to EMI in the U.S., released her first album Kylie in 1988, striking success overseas through the duration of her career. In 2001, she finally cracked the U.S. market with Fever, which reached No. 3 on the charts and sold more than 10 million copies worldwide. Her latest album, The Abbey Road Sessions, was released last Fall.
