Grimes Signs Management Deal with Jay Z's Roc Nation
Grimes released her outstanding 2012 album Visions through Arbutus Records and 4AD, but now she has another influential music company in her corner thanks to a new management deal with Jay Z's Roc Nation label.

Today (December 17), the company tweeted, "Excited to welcome Grimes to the Roc Nation family!" The songwriter's profile page on Roc Nation's website notes that she is currently recording a new album in British Columbia.

Grimes, meanwhile, updated her Tumblr to say, "ive joined the x men."

Note that this is a management contract and not a full-fledged label deal. We're not sure what labels will handle Grimes' next album, but she's still listed as a roster member on the Arbutus and 4AD websites.

In signing with Roc Nation's management wing, Grimes joins artists like Rihanna, Timbaland, MIA, HAIM, Santigold, Shakira, Kylie Minogue, Wale and more.
