Jay-Z adds another blonde to his client list…Miss Shakira has switched her management over to Roc Nation, XXL reports.
The iconic Colombian diva now joins the likes of Rihanna, Melanie Fiona, and Wale over at Jay-Z’s company.
The Prophet reports: It’s a fairly calculated move from Shakira, who has been working hard on making a huge comeback after She Wolf bombed and Sale el Sol failed to set the US charts alight, despite being a huge seller internationally.
Judging by the list of producers Shakira’s been working with on her new album, it looks like she’s planning to return to the charts in a major way by reinventing herself as a Top Forty dance diva. She’s already been in the studio with the likes of Afrojack, Tiesto, RedOne, Dr. Luke, Max Martin, and Benny Blanco, and she’s also brought in underground club queen Venus X as a creative director for the album to keep her sound fresh and cutting-edge.
Now that Shakira’s a Roc Nation girl, she’ll also have access to the many songwriters and producers that the company manages, including Chase & Status, Stargate, Switch, No I.D., and Ester Dean.
