Australian pop icon Kylie Minogue this week set a personal record, scoring her 6th consecutive #1 single on Billboard's Hot Club Play Chart with the song "Timebomb", bringing her career total to nine.
This follows the recent release of a digital EP featuring a suite of stellar remixes of her dancefloor smash, including an Extended Version, a big room mix from veteran club figure Peter Rauhofer, an irresistible deep progressive tribal jam from Steven Redant & Phil Romano, and an anthemic body-rocker from hotly-tipped Swedish producer/DJ Linus Eklow a.k.a. Style Of Eye.
Produced by Paul Harris (Dirty Vegas) and Matt Schwartz (DADA), ? "Timebomb" has taken US dance radio and clubs by storm since its May 25, 2012 release, making it Kylie's fastest-selling US single since her monster global hit - "Can‘t Get You Out Of My Head" in 2002.
Supported by a sexy video clip that has notched up close to 10 million YouTube views, "Timebomb" has firmly placed Kylie in the center of modern electronic dance pop.
The song landed in May as part of K25, a year-long celebration of Kylie's 25 years in music, and also last month marked the 2-year anniversary of her universally acclaimed album 'Aphrodite', which spawned an astonishing FOUR Billboard Club Chart #1 singles including the best seller "Get Outta My Way". Outside of her Astralwerks/Capitol Records chart successes, Kylie also took the #1 spot with her Taio Cruz collaboration "Higher".
Kylie Minogue - Timebomb video:
So far, as part of the K25 celebrations, Kylie has made a fan surprise available on Kylie.com on the 25th of every month. July's surprise was a video montage for her first ever international hit from July 1987 "The Locomotion" (exactly 25 years since its first release). The clip chronicles the song's re-arrangements over the years, Kylie's growth and stature as a performer, and her ascendance as a certifiable global star.
Earlier this year, she also performed 'Anti Tour' shows in Melbourne, Sydney, Manchester and London - small, stripped down shows in intimate venues which featured rarely performed material including B-Sides and album tracks.
Kylie also performed at Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee concert this past June in the grounds of Buckingham Place.
A 21-track audio and video collection 'The Best Of Kylie Minogue' was recently released by Capitol Records Catalog.
