2 min read

(Australia) Kylie Minogue’s 12th studio album for Mushroom/Warner Music Australia, ‘Kiss Me Once’ has “bounced bounced” to the top of the charts and has made ARIA Album chart history this week by being the first Australian album to debut at #1 in 2014.

An overjoyed Kylie sent this message to thank her fans for giving her the first #1 in the world for this album: “Big kisses to all my amazing Aussie fans for giving me my fourth #1 album! I can’t wait to come home in April to celebrate!”

With worldwide album sales of over 70 million, ‘Kiss Me Once’ is Kylie’s fourth album to reach the coveted top spot on the ARIA Album Charts. It has been 14 years since Kylie’s first #1 with ‘Light Years’ in 2000, followed by the 7xPlatinum, ‘Fever’ in 2001 and ‘X’ in 2007.

Kylie returns to Australia in April to perform the next single from what has been described as her sexiest album yet, at the TV Week Logie Awards. After Easter, Kylie will light up screens across the nation in her role as coach on The Voice Australia.

Kylie’s triumphant return to the top of the charts comes just a couple of days after she introduced over 2 million YouTube viewers to the hot and steamy world of ‘Sexercize’. Sexercize.tv has launched and takes the Sexercize craze to new levels where the viewer can continue the Sexercize experience by watching different interpretations of the song.

‘Kiss Me Once’ was executive produced by both Kylie and Australia’s other international hit maker, Sia Furler, who co-wrote the title track and the aforementioned, ‘Sexercize’ that has the world spinning around!
