Despite her status as an indie-hero, Grimes has never been shy about expressing her love for mainstream music. She’s praised everyone from Justin Bieber to Taylor Swift, even placing the pop-singer’s Red as her second favorite album of 2012. It seems Grimes herself is taking a few steps closer to the mainstream, announcing today she’d be signing with Jay Z’s Roc Nation. She posted a picture of herself on Tumblr (seen above) throwing her Roc diamond in the sky (apparently feeling the vibe.)
The Roc Nation roster is certainly an eclectic crew, with money-making-machines Rihanna and Calvin Harris, to alt-favorites Haim and M.I.A. Grimes should have no problem fitting in, just don’t be too weirded out when you start hearing her experimental electro-pop on the radio.
