You can count on the fingers of one hand the number of "pop" artists who’ve lasted more than a decade, let alone more than two! In July 1987 Kylie released her first single; a remake of the 1962 Little Eva hit "Locomotion". The song hit No.1 in Australia and remained in the top spot for seven weeks, becoming the biggest Australian single of the ‘80’s. Two decades later Kylie achieved the record for the most played female artist on UK radio over the last 20 years!
Since then she has released ten studio albums, two live CDs, eight live concert DVD’s, plus her Greatest Hits and the Ultimate Kylie double album and multiple video packages. This is of course in addition to almost 50 singles released internationally, all of which have been hits.
Kylie has been the guest of Royalty in Britain and Europe, she’s received countless gold and platinum discs; she’s been honoured with numerous prestigious awards, sold-out eight record breaking world tours and in 2000 closed the Sydney Olympics.
She’s graced the covers of the world’s leading magazines, including Attitude, Australian Style, Cleo, Cosmopolitan, Elle, The Face, FHM, Follow Me, Glamour, GQ, Harpers Bazaar, Heat, Hello, ID, Melody Maker, Ministry, Music Week,
OK, Paris Match, Rolling Stone, Sky, Select, Time and multiple covers of Vogue (Australian Guest Editor in 2006), the list is endless.
Early on in her career, after the release of "Shocked", her 13th hit single in 1991, the British industry "bible" Music Week magazine declared that Kylie was the ONLY act in the history of the British pop music to have their first 13 releases all go Top 10. Kylie now has 42 consecutive U.K. hits, none of which failed to peak in the Top 20, 32 in the Top 10!
