Kylie Minogue's last single was her least successful. Only reached 96.
Madonna's last single also failed to make the top 40:
You can see how hard it is for older artists to have chart singles success. Times change! Teenagers aren't going to relate to artists like Madonna, Kylie and Cher.
very true but Cher had a number 1 single in her early 50s. But you could argue that Believe was an exceptional track. Or that compared to the 90s our culture is even more ageist and that a woman in her 50s couldn't now achieve what Cher managed in 1998.
