Yeah, you read that right. The latest addition to the Roc Nation roster is… Kylie Minogue. The 44-year-old Australian singer has joined the house that Hov built under a management deal, according to Roc Nation’s website. Minogue has been quiet in recent years—her last album, Aphrodite, coming in 2010—which makes this deal even more of a surprise, but there’s no denying her catalog of pop hits: “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head,” “Spinning Around” and “I Should Be So Lucky” to name just a few. With the recent addition of Timbaland to its roster, it seems like Jay-Z and his label are looking to rejuvenate the careers of some of music’s O.G.s—hip-hop or not. Here’s what Roc Nation had to say about their new signing:
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.
