International Pop Icon Kylie Minogue returns to the top of the Billboard Club Chart this week as her single â€All The Loversâ€ climbs from #3 to #1 after 8 weeks on the chart. â€œAll The Loversâ€ is Kylieâ€™s fourth career #1 single on the Billboard Club Chart and her first since â€œSlowâ€ hit #1 in 2004. â€œAll The Loversâ€ is the first single from her recently released 11th studio album Aphrodite and has been heating up airwaves and dance floors around the world since the start of the summer. The Joseph Kahn (Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Katy Perry) directed video premiered on MTVâ€™s LOGO last month and is also being played on Music Choice.
Aphrodite sees Kylie celebrate her dance-floor roots and features Stuart Price as Executive Producer. The album debuted at #19, marking her highest U.S. chart position since 2002â€™s Fever. The list of songwriters includes Kylie, Stuart Price, Calvin Harris, the Scissor Sistersâ€™ Jake Shears, Nerina Pallot, Swedish House Mafia, NERVO and Keaneâ€™s Tim Rice-Oxley. Critics and fans around the globe have been praising the album as one of Kylieâ€™s best. People Magazine said â€œMinogue delivers what may be the best start-to-finish album of her careerâ€ and Billboard Magazine agrees saying Aphrodite is â€œâ€¦ cohesive, fun, and fitting for a goddess.â€ Aphrodite became Kylieâ€™s fifth #1 album in the UK, hitting the top spot a full 22 years to the week since her debut album Kylie entered the chart. The album also made Kylie the first solo artist in the history of the UK charts to have a #1 album in four different decades. Around the globe Aphrodite debuted in the top 10 in thirteen different countries including #1 in Mexico, #2 in Australia, Switzerland and Spain, #3 in Austria, France and Germany and top 5 in Belgium, Holland, Ireland and Taiwan #8 in Canada and Japan. Kylie recently graced the June/July cover of Blackbook Magazine and the August cover of Out Magazine.
In the Fall of 2009 Kylie stormed America to sell out her first ever North American tour. The 6-city tour kicked off in Oakland and made stops in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto and New York, wowing fans and critics alike at each stop. Entertainment Weekly called the show a â€œtwo-hour post-disco fantasia of strobe, bass, and glitterâ€”an all-out spectacle.â€ The New York Times claimed â€œThe concert (was) efficient, clobbering, expensive, generousâ€¦close to an alternate reality.â€ Kylie treated her U.S. fans with a new song â€œBetter Than Todayâ€ which she played for the first time during the tour. Kylie is expected to make an announcement about a 2011 world tour soon.
