Kylie Minogue And Robyn Dance Into UK Top 10

Based on downloads alone (physical release next Monday), Kylie Minogue's first Aphrodite single "All The Lovers" charts this week at #4 in the UK. Damn the football anthems!

So far it's Kylie's highest-charting song since "2 Hearts" went in at #4 in November 2007 (see: A History Of Kylie Minogue At #4). In Australia, "All The Lovers" debuts at #14. (Haters—turning on one of their own!) At least it went to #1 in Belgium, where the ball and chain is jetting off to on Tuesday!

By my count—and granted, I had a lot to drink last night—"All The Lovers" marks Kylie's 26th Top 5 single in England, if we include the Robbie Williams duet "Kids." We're also one month shy of when Kylie made her major return to pop divadom 10 years ago with "Spinning Around." Bitches need to keep downloading and then go buy that CD single when it comes out. She hasn't had a UK #1 since "Slow" (2003)!

A little further down the Brit chart, Robyn debuts at #8 with "Dancing On My Own," which becomes her fourth UK Top 10 hit and first since "Be Mine!" went to #10 in January 2008. Not faring quite as well is Robyn's eight-track album Body Talk Pt. 1, which debuts on the British album roundup at #47. Oh well—at least it went to #3 in Sweden!

On a final note, Christina Aguilera's Bionic drops on the album chart from #1 to #29.

And if you don't like it fuck you...

    Robyn's single placing is a pleasant surprise--until her appearance in the UK iTunes top 10 this week, I assumed the song would make little to no impact.

    "All The Lovers" is still so FRESH. Everything I could have wanted.

    "Kickstarts" is really a great song, too, so it's nice to see it (and Example, who's three for three in my books for his last singles) doing so well, too.

    Nice to see Example, who i am only just getting into, doing so well. and I suspect/hope that All The lovers will hang around for a little while while downloads and physical balance out. it may yet get to number one but who knows.

    And at least christina can take comfort in the fact that she STILL outsold Robyn this week who got way more critical acclaim than she did!!

    Kelly R has debuted top twenty too! most pleasing :)

    PS - photos! Bring back you and katy perry. And i finally saw a picture of moogaboo! HELLO :)
