Kylie Minogue’s latest single, “Tension,” is racing up the charts despite facing criticism from a producer who accused British radio stations of ageism for snubbing her hit song, “Padam Padam.”
The Australian pop icon released “Tension” on January 29, and it quickly gained popularity among fans. The song, which was co-written by Minogue, serves as the lead single for her upcoming fifteenth studio album, “Disco.”
However, not everyone has been supportive of Minogue’s recent work. Music producer Pete Waterman criticized British radio stations for allegedly ignoring “Padam Padam” due to Minogue’s age. In an interview with The Sun, Waterman claimed that the radio industry was ageist and needed to change its approach.
Despite the controversy, Minogue’s music continues to thrive. “Tension” entered the UK Official Singles Chart at number 38, making it her 56th Top 40 hit in the country. The achievement solidifies Minogue’s position as one of the most successful female artists in British chart history.
Minogue expressed her gratitude to her fans for their support, saying, “Thank you so much for all your love and support for ‘Tension.’ I’m thrilled that it’s connecting with you and climbing the charts!” She also thanked her team and everyone involved in the making of the song and music video.
In addition to the success of “Tension,” Minogue recently announced the release of her new album, “Disco,” which is set to hit shelves in November 2020. The album, inspired by the disco era, aims to bring joy and escapism to listeners during these challenging times.
Minogue’s career has spanned over three decades, and she has consistently delivered chart-topping hits throughout her musical journey. Her ability to reinvent herself and adapt to changing trends has made her a beloved figure in the music industry.
As Minogue continues to dominate the charts, her fans eagerly await the release of “Disco” and anticipate what she has in store for them next. With her unwavering talent and dedication to her craft, it’s clear that Kylie Minogue’s reign in the music world is far from over.
