Kylie’s Killing It!
- By Dennis Petrone
Australian and New Zealand tastemakers have been partying to Kylie Minogue’s music since the late ’80s. While her original claim to fame was playing a tomboy on the nighttime, cowboy-themed soap opera Neighbours in Australia, it wasn’t until she started singing that she truly gained global recognition. By the early 2000s, there wasn’t a club worth going to that didn’t play Kylie.
Today, like other mature, female musical masters (Madonna, for example), Kylie’s albums out every few years are consistently magical. Kylie’s latest album, “Golden,” which dropped in January is no exception. As with many overseas artists, her success across the pond in the UK and Down Under are indicators of her success to come in the U.S.
Synth pop. Disco pop. Dance pop. Golden delivers it all. With over 80 million records sold to date across her entire discography, Golden is sure to deliver. The album’s lead single “Dancing” has climbed to the top of the charts overseas and is quickly making its way to the top here. Keep in mind that summer is wrapping up in the Southern Hemisphere, so DJs and dancing queens have tested and approve of what’s sure to be – dare it be said – our summer’s first hit song. Mark those words.
