Kylie Minogue has announced that she is joining Jay-Z's Roc Nation posse.

The pop star will be joining the rapper's management roster, alongside Rihanna, Solange, MIA and the Ting Tings. Minogue is Roc Nation's second recent signing. Last week (January 31), the company revealed that they had signed a deal with producer and rapper Timbaland.

"We would like to welcome Aussie singer, recording artist, songwriter, actress and designer Kylie Minogue to the Roc Nation family!" the statement reads.

"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."

According to Billboard, Kylie is expected to release a new single soon. She is currently at work on a new studio album, the follow-up to 2012's 'Aphrodite'.

By signing with Roc Nation, it is thought that Kylie is trying to finally crack the US market – where she has struggled to reach the same levels of success she's had in the UK and her native Australia.
