Kylie Minogue's 'Aphrodite' Tops The UK Chart

Kylie Minogue's Aphrodite bested new releases from Enrique Iglesias (#6) and Feeder (#16) on the UK album chart, where it bumped Eminem's Recovery off the top spot. (In Australia, however, Eminem stayed at #1 while Kylie entered the chart at #2—HATERS!!!!!)

It should be a pretty victorious week for Kylie, as Aphrodite also cracked the Top 10 in Belgium (#6), Ireland (#5), The Netherlands (#4) and Spain (#3), and looks to be on course for becoming Minogue's first U.S. Top 20 album since Fever (which reached #3 in 2002).

"Thank you all around the world for your #Aphrodite LOVE!!! Amazing chart positions everywhere and I am absolutely thrilled!!!! Love Kylie x," she tweeted today.

And here she is sending the gays into a frenzy at G-A-Y at Heaven in London last night:

Sorry, Enrique—but that's what euphoria looks like. Aphrodite is now Kylie's fifth album to hit #1 in the UK, following Kylie (1988), Enjoy Yourself (1989), Greatest Hits (1992) and Fever (2001). 

Over on the singles chart, Minogue's "All The Lovers" slips from #3 to #9 in its fourth week. Meanwhile, JLS rack up their third UK #1 single with "The Club Is Alive."

Sigh. Good day to be a Kylie fan.

The U.K. Top 10:

1. "The Club Is Alive" - JLS *new* *1 week*
2. "California Gurls" - Katy Perry
3. "Airplanes" - B.o.B feat. Hayley Williams
4. "Love The Way You Lie" - Eminem feat. Rihanna
5. "We No Speak Americano" - Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP *new*
6. "I Like It" - Enrique Iglesias feat. Pitbull
7. "My First Kiss" - 3OH!3 feat. Ke$ha *new*
8. "Alejandro" - Lady Gaga
9. ""All The Lovers" - Kylie Minogue
10. "Kickstarts" - Example

    Well, that's "Get outta my way" going number #1 when it releases. As if there was any f**king doubt!! One of the best pop hooks of 2010.

    Kylie had better WORK in that music video. None of this stiff ass touchy feely, towering orgy crap. I know Kylie still isn't 100% after 'teh canca'. But she was grinding on her knees and shocking like she was possessed in front of fluorescent lights in that "Wow" video. So surely she can give it some now. I wanna see her make like "Spinning around". I want a bitch dancing through crowds, throwing elbows and slow grinding during the verses.

    Aphrodite is going to enjoy a nice single run, I'm sure. And she could tour with songs from this album alone and still snatch wigs and take names.

    I feel like that Heaven clip was pretty triumphant. I hope those sassy dancers are in the video!

    We are not all Haters!
    Btw the single is back in the Top 20, and she was 680 copies short of the #1 album. I agree it should of toppled Eminem, how its still on top...gees, and the single should of been another #1 hit single, but yeah i can't control 20million people lol

    The sheer joy--or, as you say, the euphoria--in that video is contagious even coming through a computer screen. I can't imagine how incredible it would have been if you were actually there!

    I have now talked myself into thinking there's actually a chance that "Get Outta My Way" could do something in the U.S. That kind of mentality only going to lead to heartbreak, but how can anyone resist that song?
