The Roc Nation management roster is steadily growing. Singer, songwriter and producer Santi “Santigold” White now joins DJ and producer Mark Ronson and rappers J. Cole and Wale, undoubtedly gaining a strong mentor and former collaborator in Jay-Z.
The excited singer went to her Twitter account to announce the news. “It’s official! Made the change to Roc Nation Management!!!” tweeted the singer. No official announcement has been made by the Roc Nation management team or label.
Santigold has worked with the Roc Nation mogul in times past on the track “Brooklyn (Go Hard)” which appeared on the Notorious biopic soundtrack and produced by Kanye West. Santigold also worked behind the scenes for longtime R&B and soul favorite Res as a songwriter before eventually moving on to work alongside Wu-Tang Clan’s GZA on his Legend Of The Liquid Sword LP in 2002 as a vocalist. White also has collaborated with the aforementioned Mark Ronson on his Version album.
Res isn’t the only artist Santigold has penned tunes for. Lily Allen, Ashlee Simpson and Christina Aguilera all have works written by the Philadelphia born songwriter. The 34-year old Santigold released her critically acclaimed self-titled album in 2008, working alongside popular DJ and producer Diplo and hip hop and electronic duo Spank Rock.
Santigold is reportedly wrapping up with the recording of her upcoming sophomore release. According to tweets from the starlet, the album will be released sometime this year. No date or title has been associated with the project.
