KYLIE Hits # 1 with 6th Consecutive Billboard HitAug 02, 2012
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 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”.
