Opening Last.fm’s Best of 2010 is Aussie pop icon Kylie Minogue. The pop veteran returned with her 11th studio album, Aphrodite, in July, having released her first single - ‘The Loco-Motion’ - way back in 1987. The star who made teeny gold hot pants acceptable continues to deliver sugary pop treats and dancefloor grooves without ageing a day.
Executive produced by Stuart Price, the man behind Madonna’s Confessions on a Dance Floor and Brandon Flowers’ solo album, Aphrodite is another volume of slinky Minogue tunes in a similar vein to her previous effort, X. You responded to ‘All The Lovers’, the first single from the record, by clocking up nearly a million scrobbles to date, making it her second most played track by Last.fm listeners behind the classic 2001 hit ‘Can’t Get You Out Of My Head’.
After receiving an OBE and becoming something of an adopted national treasure in the UK, Kylie looks set to continue her crack at Stateside recognition next year after the success of the X tour.
