The Roc Nation roster just keeps on growing and after yesterday, ‘Bad Girl’ M.I.A. is officially apart of that family.

“The nation just keeps on growing…” read a tweet from the official Roc Nation Twitter account, attached with an instagram picture of M.I.A.’s page on their website.

According to a company announcement made on Thursday, MIA has been signed under a management deal with the label.

Details beyond the announcement are scarce at this time, but we should have known something was up when Rihanna tweeted a picture of herself and M.I.A. at the Watch the Throne concert in London earlier this week.

The singer however did tweet “welcome home MIA.” after the news was revealed last night to formally welcome the Sri Lankan femcee.

MIA, whose real name is Maya Arulpragasam, joins a Roc Nation management roster with Rihanna, Santigold, Melanie Fiona, Wale, Mark Ronson and Shakira. She’s signed to Interscope records and is readying the fall release of her 4th studio album, Matangi, as well as a remix of her viral smash, “Bad Girls”, featuring Missy Elliott, her protégé Rye Rye, and Azealia Banks.
