The Ting Tings Reportedly Snag Rihanna for Roc Nation Debut
Published Jan 07, 2010As we reported in November, UK dance pop duo the Ting Tings have signed with Jay-Z's new Roc Nation imprint, which is expected to release the duo's second album later this year. Now, reports have come in that the record's profile will be boosted by the appearance of another Jay-Z protege: Rihanna.
According to a Daily Star report, Rihanna has agreed to collaborate with the Manchester duo on their upcoming record. While no actual quotes are provided, we're hoping the rumours are true. Rihanna really seems like she could use a fun break from all the dark, scary music videos and chafing leather costumes.
Also, initial reports suggested that Jay-Z would be lending a production hand to the Ting Ting's Roc Nation debut.
The Ting Tings' debut record, We Started Nothing, has already moved 1.2 million copies worldwide. With Jay-Z's team of musicians behind them, there's no question that they'll get infinitely bigger in 2010.
