Rihanna Joins Roc Nation

Published: Wednesday 20th Oct 2010 by Sam

In news that will no doubt set tongues wagging, faux-diva Rihanna has announced that she will now be managed by Jay-Z and his Roc Nation media firm.

Full story after the jump…

Via Associated Press:

NEW YORK (AP) — Rihanna is now under Jay-Z’s umbrella.

The Pop singer has parted ways with manager Marc Jordan and is now being managed by Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Management.

Rihanna told The Associated Press in a statement Wednesday that she’s “so excited to take this next step in my career.”

The 22-year-old is also launching a new company called Rihanna Entertainment. She says it will “merge all of her businesses, including music, film, fragrance fashion and book ventures.”

Jay-Z signed Rihanna to Def Jam in 2005. The two won a Grammy in 2008 for the hit song “Umbrella.” Earlier this year, the pair picked up two Grammys for the rap song “Run This Town,” which also featured Kanye West.

She’s released four albums and plans to release her fifth CD, “Loud,” on Nov. 16.

While this surely won’t help the model’s cause with the ever-raging rumours (see: Jay-Z, Beyonce), it is as smart a move as an empty barrel can make. For, while McFenty deceives the masses with her Oscar-worthy imitation of a legit performer, she may as well make money from it – something the creation of Rihanna Entertainment will certainly help facilitate.

She may suck at pretty much everything, but this latest move proves she blossoming into quite a business-woman. Kudos to her.

  18. elleuk October 21, 2010

    she may suck at everything else? come on samatha.
    im no stan but even i can see that (regardless of her vocal ability)with the number 1 singles she has, and all the press
    attention she gets (especially from this site) plus a spread in italian vogue, means she aint sucking at s***. she may not sing like whitney, but people are snapping up her singles like she does.
    get your money rihrih, and let the haters waste their lives talking ish from the sidelines.
    remember hating is what people do when they can’t express their love for you.

    YOU GUYS HATE IS REAL STUPID AND THE INSULTS ARE CHILDISH….

  27. Imanni October 21, 2010

    OK I apologize if this is a stupid question but wasnt she already under Jay Z? And is Roc nation his new label. If so is she leaving Def Jam?

  28. S*** October 21, 2010

    @ KeepIt Real

    Right, & that would give The Queen…

    19 Grammys
    Over 40 Top 10s
    & 16 #1s

    Wow, Rihanna is really pulling her weight for Mother Bey. 😆

  29. DANA October 21, 2010

    Wow now that was a smart move. Jay-Z is not a dummy with all she has going right now he is going to make sure the he will be apart of it all. Don’t know if it’s smart for Rihanna tho but Jay-Z & Bey will have complete control now

  30. Soulful Roses October 21, 2010

    @RoyalKev
    I agree. Bey does better adopting a child….

  31. Yinka October 21, 2010

    Too much negativity coming from TGJ when it comes to Rihanna (smh)…I say its a dodgy decision (business wise). Although Jay-Z seems to have a good head for it when it comes to his own music career, Iets hope this works in RiRi’s favour for her own sake lol.

  32. gio88 October 21, 2010

    even Kelly rowland should be managed by Jay-z….i don’t understand why she doesn’t do it!!

    smart move. jay z takes care of her.

    guess she gave her management team the Deuces! sad day bc they def helped make her who she was. o well. cbe all day

  40. DANA October 21, 2010

    Def Jam was taking all the money from Rihanna so now Jay-z will be manageing it now. With everyone getting fired left and right at Def Jam I don’t think she had a choice but to go with Roc Nation – Jay-Z

  41. DANA October 21, 2010

    Rihanna will have another#1 single now when is she ever going to get the #1 album??

  42. well October 21, 2010

    this could be a really good move…but it could also be the worst move she ever made…
    well time will tell….

  43. yasmine23 October 21, 2010

    rihanna is not leaving def jam she is just going be manage by jay’s roc nation team
    which includes ty ty and jay brown (jay’s best friends)

    not really a surprise
    rihanna might not have talent but the girl can make money
    jay is a smart busines man so smart move

  44. NA NA October 21, 2010

    DON’T BELIEVE IT-BUT WHATEVER FLOATS YOUR BOAT! RIRI IS THAT BISH! WHO’S THAT CHIC?

  45. NA NA October 21, 2010

    IF THIS IS TRUE-LET’S PLAY ALONG-THEN WE KNOW JAY LOVES HIM SOME RIRI. HE JUST CAN’T STAY AWAY FROM HIS LIL SISTA! WE LOVE HER TOO JAY! LOL!

  46. lax October 21, 2010

    GREAT MOVE , SHE IS AS SHARP AS THEY COME, SHE AND JAY, BEYONCE, WEST AND
    THE WHOLE GANG HAS ALWAYS BEEN TIGHT ITS THESE EMPTY HEADED COO COOS
    WHOS TRIPPING ALL OF THE TIME. RIHANNA WILL HAVE HER OWN ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY .

  47. lax October 21, 2010

    JAYZ KNOWS A WINNER WHEN HE SEES ONE , THATS WHY HE HIRED RIHANNA FROM THE START. I HAVE ALWAYS SAID THAT WHEN RIHANNA DOES GOOD ITS A GOOD REFLECTION ON JAYZ AND BEY!!!!!!

  48. Robier October 21, 2010

    Bwaaahaaaa thats right Jay-z and Bey own her

  49. Kick The Ear Drum October 21, 2010

    This is huge for her, and it makes sense,, he signed her so why not be on his label.. Willow and Rihanna one the same label..ironic?

  50. lax October 21, 2010

    @ DANA ,,, ALL OF HER FOUR ALBUMS WAS IN THE TOP TEN, #1 IS GREAT BUT ITS NOT THE GUIDE LINE THAT THE PEOPLE WHO COUNTS AND KEEP UP WITH THE NUMBERS AND YOU SAYING THAT HER ALBUMS HAS NEVER GONE TO #1 WELL THEY DO NOT HAVE TO , BECAUSE YOU AND OTHER BIRD BRAINERS LIKE YOU ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO WORRIES ABOUT #1. IF YOU WANT TO PLAY THAT FUKING GAME THEN GIVE HER CREDIT THAT SHE DESERVES FOR WHAT SHE HAS DONE SO FAR.
    HATERS GETS MAD WHEN NUMBERS ARE MENTION BUT IF ITS NUMBERS ON ANY ONE OTHER THAN RIHANNA THEN YOU ARE JUST FINE…. DAM NIT-PICKERS

  51. Kyle October 21, 2010

    Let’s not forget, her past management team is the group that took her from nothing to everything she is today.

  52. thisisnotgood October 21, 2010

    I am with you guys Def Jam was taking all Rihanna money that she owe them. Everything that Rihanna made had to go to those crooks. But I going to say one thing Rihanna needs to go to management school so she could know what the hell is going on with her money . One thing Oprah always said is that get to know the business and learn to manage you own. Something happen with Oprah and it force her to learn the business and manage her own money. I don’t trust this management team either.

  53. boo hoo hoo October 21, 2010

    @ I think it was obvious why rihanna released loud this year. SHe had a 5 record deal with her label and she wanted everything to be wrapped up with them this year, so she can move over to rock nation and Join her old crew. Jay Z and them. ANy way I see a little mogul in the making. Rihanna is setting herself up to make some major power moves. Her own entertainment company and ish. Go on now ri ri we see you. Good for her. You can’t keep a good woman down!!

  54. Blasian October 21, 2010

    Rihanna wants to be BEYONCE so bad lol! HELLO it’s never going to happen

  55. Blasian October 21, 2010

    HAHA BEYONCE OWNS RIHANNA LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I OWN YOU BISH

  56. thisisnotgood October 21, 2010

    @Kyle
    I know right.

    Jay-Z lost a hell of alot of money with bad investments this is why I said Rihanna needs to go to management school.

  57. boo hoo hoo October 21, 2010

    @ dana many have had number one albums, and still could not outsell rihanna in the long run. Who cares about #1 albums when after the first week you fail to bring in substantial #’s rihanna has never had a #1 but neither has gaga, but that don’t stop them from still making the dough and outselling many of those with the #1 album status. For example letoya luckett had a #1 album on the charts, but where is her career exactly? Number one albums can come pretty easy, but the hardest part is maintaining a viable career, which rihanna is managing to do even after not having a #1 in the US, because we all know she’s had #1 albums all across the globe.

  58. TeAM WeeZY October 21, 2010

    All this means is Beyonce’s next lacefront will be purchased with Rihanna’s money.

  59. NICKY October 21, 2010

  63. Rated X October 21, 2010

    even though, I’m not a big fan of rihanna, but I dont think her being on joe camel’s label is a great idea…

    joe camel is already in the process of making willow smith the next big thing..

    and we all know Jada and Will is not going to sit there and let, some tone deaf chick, get all the shine..

    this is not about being a HATER, stans, this is about common sense

  64. boo hoo hoo October 21, 2010

    why would will and Jada object to rihanna? after all she was in the Jay z crew before willow, and its obvious Jada is patterning her little one after rihanna. She seems to admire rihanna’s career and style, that is why lil willow has the same rihanna swagger. And isn’t willow catering to the teeny boppers while rihanna is for the grown folks. No competition there. Cause although I think willow is cute and all, I prefer rihanna’s grown woman swag a lil more. My lil nieces and nephews can listen to willow all day everyday, but she’s not for me.

  65. Rated X October 21, 2010

    beyonce is about to get paid with rihannas money..so i wouldnt brag about her being knocked up and NOT being able to release an album..

    the reason people thought rihanna was under jay z label, is because even though shes still with def jam, she still gets managed by joe camel..

    I dont know why people think if rihanna is gonna be on roc nation, its gonna sell her more albums..

  66. badd October 21, 2010

    ^^ I agree

  67. Blasian October 21, 2010

    NICKY

    SORRY BEYONCE NOT LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  68. Rated X October 21, 2010

    yes willow caters to the yongins, BUTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

    her single wip my hair, the majority of people who loved it ARE GROWN A** PEOPLE..

    u stans seems to think because willow sees rihanna as her motivation, that means theres no competition, get the eff out of here…

    let me break it down for u stans….

    when rihanna first became the so call icon, with her ever changing hair styles..who do u think her motivation was? KELIS..all the hot hairstyle rihanna been rocking, kelis already done it..

  69. Rated X October 21, 2010

    and she took kelis hairstyles, than, BAM, she got more attention for it..

    now, willow smith may see rihanna has her watava, but believe ..in the end she might be able to be a BETTER RIHANNA..

    rihanna was created not born….that means any body can be a a rihanna..

    and I wouldnt get all excited about her joining roc nation, because
    1. Def jam always promote the hell out of rihanna..
    2. they spend more money on her, than any other artist on def jam..

    and since def jam hires only the best of the best writers, and producers for rihanna. and shes still floppin, then that means its rihanna who cant sell albums..

  70. MsTrendy October 21, 2010

    i heard that JayZ

  71. xedos October 21, 2010

    Its a great move. it save her lots of money. Signing with rock nation is a one stop shop. she gets management, marketing, touring and endorsement deals. Roc nation also have an marketing division. Jay z partner Steve Stoute is the guy who set up most black celebrity to get endorsement. Roc nation is part of live nation so she gets her touring taking care of. The only thing left is for her to finish her contract and move to Roc nation for music. Roc nation staff already is her A&R and she’s been working with them since she came into the game. its a good move.

    @ rated x grown people may like her song, but i don’t see much grown people buying a nine year olds album on a regular like that. unless they are going to be buying it for their kids. That song was a one hit. I don’t see where willow really can go from there. Kelis rihanna’s motivation? I never heard that one before. its kind of funny you know.

    @boo hoo hoo

    yes, ironic huh….

    both wip my hair and only girly came out on the same day…do u know how many blogs, white, black, even the ones who usually kiss rihannas a**..they all had the same reaction.
    willow snatch rihannas wig..
    rihanna may cater to older people, but they not checking for her, the majority of her fans/stans are under 18..google that s***

    second..im glad u find my comment about kelis being rihannas motivation, when it comes to her hairstyles , funny….google that s***….

  77. Rated X October 21, 2010

    like i said all the hairstyles rihanna has or had..she stole it from kelis…

    i know as a die hard stan of rihanna, its hard for u to comprehend the facts.. but

    soorrrryyyyyyyyyyyy booboo

    kelis rocked all them hairstyles

  78. boo hoo hoo October 21, 2010

    @rated x why is it that when it comes to rihanna you come off as being so explosively angry? Is rihanna getting even a little shine so upsetting to you? Yeah people on the blogs could say that Willow snatched rihanna’s wig, but haven’t you noticed that the people saying that are the regular rihanna haters. They would say anyone who came along is snatching rihanna’s wig. Now you guys are putting all your hope on this little nine year old to bring rihanna down. This lil girl is just getting started, and rihanna is already seasoned. Talk to me when Willow makes it 5 years in the game, then maybe i may give her a second thought. But as of now, lil willow is just another raven symone, chris kross, abc, omg girls another little child act trying to get into the biz. She still has a Looong way to go.

  79. Rated X October 21, 2010

    but its all good in the hood..

    i wish rihanna the best of luck with LOUD…

    hopefully being on roc nation can give her the boost she needs..

    but i have a feeling this s*** is NOT gonna end well

  80. boo hoo hoo October 21, 2010

    @ rated x kelis didn’t invent any hairstyles, so there wasn’t any to steal. All hairstyles have been worn before. And since Kelis is older than rihanna, chances are that she would have rocked some of them before rihanna did. Like my moms rocked some hairstyles before I did. But of course no one would ever accuse me of stealing my moms hairstyles would they? Everything in this world has been recycled and you can even notice this with Willow coming in as the recycled rihanna. It has all been done before.

  84. boo hoo hoo October 21, 2010

    @rated x its not the best i can come up with. Just an observation boo. If you noticed i went on to say much more after that, but you chose to ignore it all and concentrate on your angry persona. Yes you seem agitated or irate when it comes to rihanna like you want her to fail at all cost or you won’t be happy. U haters don’t give her any shine, so don’t kid yourself. Rihanna’s success rest squarely on the shoulders of her many dedicated fans. Those that have been holding her down for the past 5 years. All you haters do is try to bring stress into her life, but I’m glad she seems able to shake it off and keep it moving.

    It could either end up being a good or bad move as someone already said time will tell…

    Jayz is a smart businessman – the only thing he cares about is his money.

  87. TEE October 21, 2010

    Big mistake if this is the truth…Rihanna should stay with Def Jam because no other record label will promote, or spend as much money on her like Def Jam did. You know Jay-z won’t because he is all about the money.

NO REST ASSURED THAT BEY IS EVEN MORE UNDER THE THUMB THAN RIHANNA BECAUSE SHE IS CONTROLLED BY JAY AND HER FATHER AND THE WORST PART IS SHE’S HAPPY FOR IT TO BE THAT WAY LOL

    2. CAN PEOPLE STOP PRETENDING WILLOW SMITH IS THE NEXT MADONNA, SHE HAS 1 (PRESUMED) HIT ON HER HANDS AND I’M NOT HATING WHEN I SAY THIS BUT MOSTLY IT’S JUST NOVELTY BECAUSE SHE’S A KID. NO PERSON 16 UP IS GONNA WALK INTO A RECORD SHOP AND TAKE A WILLOW ALBUM TOO THE TILL LOL
    I WISH HER LUCK BUT AT THE MOMENT (AS A 9 YEAR OLD) SHE IS A NOVELTY.

  90. boo hoo hoo October 21, 2010

    @rated x if rihanna wasn’t successful, why then are you upset about her making moves? Why do you talk s*** about her everyday, why do you care one way or the other? Face the facts if she was irrelevant as you say you won’t give her a second thought. Yes we are buying her albums, why the hell do you think she went platinum worldwide, and is still selling. Why do you think she’s still here after 5 years, because we got her back. yes have go on to sleep cause we all know as much as you claim not to like rihanna. You dream about her every night and can’t wait to talk about her everyday. Rihanna’s got a hold on you baby. yeah maybe you should stop hating full time and maybe you won’t always be so bitter.

    Well it was just comfirm that Beyonce is NOT having a baby. Her mother Ms. Knowles was on Ellen’s show and said it was a rumor.

  93. CRAMPED October 21, 2010

    @ TEE – Thank you very much.

    @ FUTURESH!T – Beyonce isnt controlled by anyone – she is too independent and sucessful for this nonsense. Jayz and beyonce will never mix business and their personal life.

    Rihanna Entertainment? – It looks like r**** is about to mess up her money while trying to make more money. Good luck with that.

  94. lola October 21, 2010

    I wonder what the outcome of this switch will be. Jay-Z promoted the hell out of Rihanna and made sure that only she and Ne-Yo got the most publicity and marketing from Def Jam in the past. He could do the same on his own label but the difference is that he would be spending and managing his own label’s money, so he may not do as much with her this time around.

    I’m sick and tired of people praising Rihanna like she’s this magnificent talent and smart business woman. She knows absolutely nothing about the business side and how could you expect her to when she entered when she was only 17 and didn’t go to college for business? This is the same one who doesn’t write her own songs, just ads adlibs cuz I checked her credits and was amazed at how little her name was mentioned on every one of her albums and when it was mentioned, there were up to 5 other writers named before her. She doesn’t produce her own music, write her own books… she has some good a** people around her like Britney Spears.

    It’s not hard for a bubblegum pop singer to get rich, have successful singles and “own a business” at such a young age when he/she is catering to the teeny boppers. People like Miley Cyrus, Mary Kate and Ashley, Hilary Duff, High School Music and Camp Rock actors, Britney Spears, and many more have all accomplished more than Rihanna at a younger age than her so wtf are y’all talking about?

    @ Team Weezy

    I was so going to say that!

  96. GOGO October 21, 2010

  97. Bey_Bishes October 21, 2010

    Jay Z is so hard on the eyes 🙁

  98. Miss Chick Boom October 21, 2010

    GREAT!! Rihanna is Beyonce’s little slave. Beyonce makes money off the little bajan h**.

  99. GOGO October 21, 2010

    LORD SHE KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT THE BUSINESS AND SHE TALKING ABOUT RIHANNA ENTERTAINMENT AND THEN SHE IS LETTING SOMEONE ELSE MANAGE IT? OMG THIS IS A NO NO. WASN’T SHE WITH JAY BEFORE AND AT DEF JAM AND JAY LEFT. YEA I BELIEVE SO THAT’S THE YEAR SHE WAS ALMOST BROKE. IT’S NOT LIKE IT WOULD BE JUST JAY BUT IT IS A TEAM OF THEM AND THAT IS TO MANY HANDS ON HER MONEY.

  100. Ladia Yates October 21, 2010

    Duh who else is gonna sing background in all williow smith’s songzzzzzzzzzzz

  101. antertain October 21, 2010

    Well it’s not like she’s signed to Roc Nation label.
    Jay-Z is just apart of her management team, which in a way makes sense as her saw the vision for her and contributed to her success when he signed her to Def Jam.

    Good move for her.

  102. ADE October 21, 2010

    Get that money Rihanna!

  103. GROW UP PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! October 21, 2010

    ITS HEARTBREAKING THAT PEOPLE REALLY WANT TO SEE HER OR ANYONE ELSE FAIL. DOES YOUR HATRED CUT THAT DEEP ? DONT TRY FIGURE OUT Y U CANT GET ANY WHERE.I READ THE SAME STORY ANOTHER SITE WITHOUT ALL THE LOADED B*******. THIS SITE IS FILLED WITH HATE. AND SAM AND MOST OF THE READERS R TO DUMB TO REALIZE THAT THEY R REALLY SAD.

    GET UR MONEY UP RIRI. SREW THESE BROKE ASSES.

  104. Stacey October 21, 2010

    As magnificent as Rihanna’s stans think she is, there isn’t room at the top for everyone. Rihanna doesn’t have the connections Willow Smith has, and if allegiance has to be shown, Jay-z will choose Will and Jada any day over Rihanna. I don’t understand how anyone can’t see through this.

    Def Jam spent millions promoting Rihanna and got nothing back. You think Jay-z is going to do that? However, Rihanna may still present a problem to Willow’s success and Rihanna’s appeal is to a young crowd that is growing older. Her style and voice can’t mature with her fans, so she will be replaced. Jay-z will manage her down to nothing while simultaneously catapulting Willow Smith to superstar status way past Rihanna. It’s the fox guarding the henhouse. Rihanna had better watch her back. The Hove Devil ain’t gonna play fair.

  105. GROW UP PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! October 21, 2010

    LIKE I SAID SAD SAD SAD. DO U HEAR YOURSELVES? AGAIN I ASK WHAT THE HELL DID THIS GIRL DO TO SOME OF U? I MEAN REALLY TELL ME. I DONT CARE IF SHE SOUNDS LIKE A PIG, THIS AMOUNT OF HATE IS JUST GETTING CRAZY.

  106. lisa October 21, 2010

    I SMELL TROUBLE DOWN THE LINE !

  107. boo hoo hoo October 21, 2010

    Jay-z will choose Will and Jada any day over Rihanna. I don’t understand how anyone can’t see through this.

    ^^

    Yeah jay z could choose will and Jada over rihanna, but you need to remember that rihanna already has her fans, and fans are the ones who support an artist and keep them relevant so the only way rihanna can lose, is if her fans abandon her for a 9 year old, and i don’t see that happening, so rihanna has nothing to worry about.

  108. boo hoo hoo October 21, 2010

    Duh who else is gonna sing background in all williow smith’s songzzzzzzzzzzz
    ^^

    Fail, recycling old material from Necole bitchie. How lame.

  109. boo hoo hoo October 21, 2010

    GREAT!! Rihanna is Beyonce’s little slave. Beyonce makes money off the little bajan h**.

    ^^

    And beyonce’s husband will be keeping rihanna’s bank account fat, so its a win win situation for all. LMAO.
