Kylie Minogue

Kylie Minogue sets UK chart records with her new album, Disco

Her 15th studio album, Disco, topped the charts with 55,000 sales, meaning it has also scored the best opening week of any new release in 2020 so far.

It is her eighth number one, meaning she has overtaken Elton John, Cliff Richard and George Michael in the all-time chart leaderboard.

"I'm lost for words," said the star.

"Thank-you to everyone who has supported this album. I'm so touched that it's made its way to your hearts. I love it."

The Kylie Minogue vs Kylie Jenner trademark battle

Jenner, who first shot to fame in the US reality TV show Keeping Up With the Kardashians, has been trying to trademark the name Kylie in the US.

But she has been blocked by the veteran Australian pop star Minogue, best known for hits such as I Should Be So Lucky and Can't Get You Out Of My Head.

After a long and heated battle, the Kylies may have reached a settlement.


How did this all begin?

Aria awards: Kylie Minogue calls for same-sex marriage in Australia

The 48-year-old singer and actor Joshua Sasse, 28, announced their engagement earlier this year.

The couple subsequently vowed to postpone their nuptials until same-sex marriage becomes legal in Australia.

Dressed in "Say I Do Down Under" T-shirts at the Arias in Sydney, the pair urged the change to come next year.

"We're here to introduce a shining light in the Australian music industry," Minogue told the audience on Wednesday night.

"But we're also here to say thank you to everyone who has supported Josh's campaign for equality."
