KYLIE’S BROKEN RECORDS WITH No.1 ALBUM
jeanniejeanniejeannie.co.uk BLOG Wednesday 17th November 2020
So, we are officially back after our time of morning. And besides the losses of those so close and dear to us, Bobby Ball, Sean Connery and Des O’Connor as well as many, many more have passed away.
As the song says “For everything there is a season… A time to live…A time to die. It definitely appears to be “A time to die” at the moment.
Anyway, lets lift the mood. None of those we have mentioned would want us to be miserable for too long. So, let us find something to be joyful about.
And it’s an item about Kylie Minogue.
Fantastic Kylie can always be depended on to bring a smile to anyone’s face and a glow to any heart.
Congratulations to Kylie, who claims this week’s Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart with her new collection DISCO, setting an incredible new Official Chart record in the process.
Kylie’s 15th studio album debuts at the top with 55,000 chart sales – the biggest opening week of 2020 so far. DISCO is the star’s eighth UK Number 1 album and Kylie’s biggest opening week in 10 years, since 2010’s Aphrodite.
This week’s result means Kylie sets a new Official Chart record, becoming the first female artist to score a Number 1 on the UK’s Official Albums Chart in five consecutive decades – in the ‘80s, ‘90s, ‘00s, ‘10s and ‘20s.
Kylie told OfficialCharts.com. “DISCO has entered the charts at Number 1! I don’t know what to say, I’m lost for words, thank you to everyone who has supported this album and this campaign, it means the world to me. I’m so touched that it’s made it’s way to your hearts. I love it!”
Kylie’s DISCO was the best-seller of the week both physically and on digital downloads, plus also claims one of the fastest-selling vinyl albums of the year, with 13,500 copies sold on wax.
An eighth Number 1 means Kylie also now surpasses the likes of Sir Elton John, Sir Cliff Richard and George Michael in the all-time league of acts with the most UK Number 1 albums.
It means Little Mix, who have been locked in a nail-bitingly close battle with Kylie all week, finish at Number 2 with their sixth album Confetti. The group claim the most-streamed album of the week and their sixth consecutive Top 5 collection.
Another big Official Chart record has been set on this week’s chart, by Dame Shirley Bassey. Her final album, I Owe It All To You, is new at Number 5, making her the first female artist to claim a Top 40 album in seven consecutive decades. Shirley scored her first Official Albums Chart entry in 1961 with Fabulous Shirley Bassey. Her latest collection is her first Top 5 in 42 years, since 1978’s 25th Anniversary Album.
