Kylie Minogue is the first female artist to top UK albums chart in five consecutive decades. She broke the record with the release of her new studio album ‘Disco’, released last Friday (November 6) and entered the Official Charts at Number One.
The album also had the biggest opening week sales of any 2020 release in the UK so far, selling 55,000 units across streaming, CD, vinyl, downloads and a retro cassette edition.
Minogue’s first chart-topping release was her self-titled debut in 1988, followed by ‘Enjoy Yourself’ a year later. In 1992 her ‘Greatest Hits’ also landed at Number One, as well as 2001’s ‘Fever’, 2010’s ‘Aphrodite’, 2018’s ‘Golden’ and 2019’s ‘Step Back In Time: The Definitive Collection’.
With eight Number One albums under her belt, she has now overtaken Elton John and George Michael in the all-time charts leaderboard.
It also makes her one of five other artists to ever share this achievement, alongside Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Paul Weller and Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour.
