The pop princess Kylie Minogue of Australia has danced her way into the number one spot on the UK charts, smashing records set by Elton John and George Michael respectively.
Minogue, who with her latest ‘DISCO’ collection claimed number 1 on the Official Albums Chart this week, is now the first female artist in the UK to have a number one album in five different decades.
On Friday, the 52-year-old musician topped the album charts, taking to social media to announce the news and thank fans for their support.
“I am so grateful and overwhelmed. Disco is all yours and I LOVE that it is now in your hands, hearts and worlds!!!” the star wrote on Instagram.
‘DISCO’ is the star’s eighth UK Number 1 album and Kylie’s biggest opening week in 10 years, according to Official Charts.
“(I used) wardrobe rails and duvets to try to get the sound as good as possible,” she said.
“It wasn’t without its technology hiccups. I did feel pretty worn down after however many weeks of that and I’d be ready to burst into tears. I’m proud of what we were able to achieve, but it did get the better of me at some points. And I needed to let that out – to let myself have those emotions.”
