Australia’s Princess of Pop Kylie Minogue has signed with Roc Nation, the music company founded by the rapper Jay-Z.

Posing with a Roc Nation singlet on a photo posted to her Instagram account this morning, “Kisses from my new home,” wrote Minogue, 44.

"We would like to welcome Aussie singer, recording artist, songwriter, actress and designer Kylie Minogue to the Roc Nation family!" read a statement from the entertainment stable, which is home to such artists as Rihanna, Shakira, Solange Knowles, MIA, Calvin Harris and Rita Ora.

"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."

It was just last month the “Spinning Around” star split with her manager Terry Blamey, who has been by her side since the release of her 1987 debut “The Locomotion.”

It was believed the decision signalled her return to film, with Minogue saying her roles in 2012’s Holy Motors and Jack and Diane ”re-lit that fire” and she “would like to do more acting”.

Still, "she was never retiring from music," a source tells WHO, "so watch this space."

Minogue’s U.S. publicist confirmed to Billboard the singer has signed up for Roc Nation’s management services. Meanwhile, her recording deal with Parlophone remains in limbo, with the label’s parent company EMI set to merge with Universal.

The London based singer, whose 2011 Aphrodite Les Folies global tour grossed 32.5 million, is reportedly set to release a new single “soon,” with previous reports she’s been at work on a follow up album to 2010’s Aphrodite since spring 2012.

She will perform a pre-Grammys charity show in LA with Roc Nation stablemate Timbaland and Deadmau5 on Feb. 10.
