It's Kylie Minogue And VERBAL's Japan Charity Single "We Are One"

Good lord — it's been so long since we've heard Kylie Minogue do an actual mid-tempo track (well, okay, it's only been about four years). But here she is sounding sweet and full of uplifting pop joy on the chorus of "We Are One," a benefit single for Japan earthquake relief that's a collaboration with Japanese rapper VERBAL.

I actually spoke with Kylie earlier this month during a teleconference (which I took part in for Idolator), and she said, "“I don’t know how soon I would rush in to doing another pop album. I’m definitely looking into opportunities of collaborations or different performances that will keep fans satisfied, keep my interest up."

On YouTube, Kylie and VERBAL state, "We extend our heartfelt sympathy and condolences to all who have been affect ed by the Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami, and we truly hope for the recovery as soon as possible. Let's all help rebuild the country together!! This collaboration single "We Are One" was especially written deep from our hearts thinking about everyone in the Tohoku regions. We'd strongly like to continue supporting for the future of Japan."

    Can she donate her botox fund to Japan - she's be doing herself and the world a huge favour.

    Did you see the really sweet Dannii/Kylie interview, backstage on the Aphrodite tour? Both sisters were really funny.

    How was interviewing Kylie - were you able to Breathe?
