One day she's concentrating on her acting career, the next she's signing with one of the music industry's most powerful people.

Australian pop princess *Kylie Minogue *announced via Twitter yesterday that she had signed with Roc Nation, the record label, management and publishing company founded by hip-hop star *Jay-Z *.

It is also understood Minogue, who has sold more than 68 million albums worldwide, is gearing up to release a new single "soon" after working on new music for almost a year.

"Kisses from my new home rocnation," she tweeted, along with a picture of herself with puckered lips in a Roc Nation T-shirt.

The company, which is home to *Rihanna *, *M.I.A *, *Shakira *and *Rita Ora *, acknowledged the signing with a brief statement on its website.

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

It hasn't taken long for Minogue to be fully integrated into the Roc Nation family - she will be a guest at the company's post-Grammy benefit concert at the House of Blues in Los Angeles on Sunday, alongside *Timbaland * and *Deadmau5 *.

Minogue announced her split with long-time manager *Terry Blamey *last month. That led to speculation she was retiring from the music business to concentrate on movies.
