Jay-Z Expands Roc Nation; Signs Model/DJ Harley Viera-Newton
Hip-Hop mogul Jay-Z has expanded the Roc Nation roster once again, with the signing of London native/Los Angeles raised DJ/model, Harley Viera-Newton.
Roc Nation made the announcement late last night (January 31st), citing Newton's rising popularity in the music and fashion worlds. Newton recently graduated from New York University's School of Individualized Study.
While attending school, Newton developed a following by DJ'ing in New York clubs like Lit, Santos, the Jane and others. Additionally, Newton currently serves as Dior Beauty's House DJ and Beauty Ambassador.
"Aside from killing it on the one's and two's, Newton has caught the eyes of fashion insiders," a rep for Roc Nation said in a statement, noting that Newton has been profiled in publications including American Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Nylon and others.
