Pop star Kylie Minogue has stepped into a new era of her music career after signing on with Jay-Z's record label.
The singer parted ways from her longtime manager, Terry Blamey, last month after a partnership of more than 25 years, sparking rumors that she was winding down her time as a recording artist.
Instead, Minogue has been confirmed as a surprise addition to the roster at Roc Nation, the urban music-focused label owned by Jay-Z. The Aussie singer will join the likes of Rihanna, Timbaland and M.I.A. on the company's books.
"We would like to welcome Aussie singer, recording artist, songwriter, actress and designer Kylie Minogue to the Roc Nation family!" said the label, via a 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."
