I must admit, I have a soft spot for Kylie. I think she's a fantastic performer after seeing her in 2011. But do you think it's possible for her to have another number 1 single?

Also, where have the rumours that her new track is called 'Get It' from?

I hate to say it, but no I don't think she can.

The fact that music is mostly consumed digitally nowadays and is far cheaper than it ever was before, automatically puts the majority of the market in the hands of teenagers, and at 45 Kylie is of little interest to them.

She still has an audience, but chart success nowadays depends on appealing to the young, and the older you get the less likely it is (as Madonna is also finding out).

And adding rap to any new efforts will just alienate her existing fanbase.

Of course, she just needs to take a page out of Miley's book and start twerking and sticking her tongue out

That's sadly what I've been thinking too... It's a shame because if this continues we'll lose the true queens of music from the singles charts for good

kylie would never do that, she's far too image conscious and realistic. on that other hand, this is definitely something i wouldn't put past madge. she's already got the grills in place, she also did that "shuffling" with lmfao at the superbowl and she literally couldn't care less what people will make of it.

i do think like with madonna though, she will struggle with her chart placings in this digital age. its sad, because back in the late nineties cher was enjoying the biggest hit of her career, but airplay seems to have become more ageist in recent years. so the chances of older artists (especially female) scoring big returns like that on the singles chart is pretty slim now.

Even though All the Lovers peaked at #3 it's actually Kylie's biggest selling single in the UK since the Fever era. It's been said that had the songs physical release been timed simultaneously with the digital download, the song would most likely have reached #1 in the UK. I certainly wouldn't count her out scoring another chart topper in the future. It's going to be interesting to see how Roc Nation manage her.

The charts aren't actually mainly controlled by teenagers. I saw the figures somewhere, but 75% of iTunes downloaders are age 25 or over. Do you really think the most downloaded songs would be Someone Like You and Moves Like Jagger if it was 14 year-olds doing all the downloading? http://ipcarrier.blogspot.co.uk/2010...-behavior.html

As for the Kylie question, I don't know. If she can ever get Capital FM on her side, then I think it's possible. Very unlikely however. Although it was only a few years ago in 2010 when she got relatively close to a #1.

Brooke Candy is meant to be appearing on the single and she's way more tits out and in your face than Miley.
Sweet niblets, she makes Hannah look like a nun!

I think she probably could, but it would need to be a song that had wider appeal than simply her core fanbase.

I'd say there's a good chance she can get to no1 with her comeback single providing it's a good song.

Considering she got really close to having a no 1 with "All The Lovers". Had all formats been released on the same week she definetly would have got the no1 slot.

Madonna is also TEN years older than Kylie. Almost a different generation..

I'm really excited about this Roc Nation album. I can't wait to hear the new stuff.From her recent interviews you can tell she the new sounds going to be raw.

As a huge Kylie fan, I still have hope. But I feel that unless she's featured on a track (much like Britney was), I can't see her hitting #1 with the way people over 40 are overlooked on the radio stations
On the other hand though, I hope I am proved hugely wrong.

Is there any word on the single btw? It's driving me mad waiting - even if it is wise to avoid Katy Perry + Gaga releases...

i don't know, people are going on about how "all the lovers" could have been #1, but "timebomb" didn't exactly set the charts alight last year. that song was pretty well received critically, had a great video, she had a good performance slot on "the voice", but crucially the lack of airplay killed its buzz.

when radio 1 opted to spin the us version of "higher" without kylie's feature, she joined madonna who was snubbed previously and robbie williams who was shunned later by the station. radio 2 will no doubt still support her, but she needs to get more commercial radio support too.

I think any artist can get a number 1 single again.

It just needs the right promotion & exposure (aswell as being a good track)

I was livid when Timebomb tanked. It was a great dance track and it had every absolute potential to get to number 1 and sell well. I get why Kylie is frustrated with Parlophone, which I think has the most incompetent marketing team. It was a shame that radio didn't pick it up, as I personally thought it was better than all singles released from Aphrodite era.

I was one of the few people who was underwhelmed by All The Lovers. It was alright, but didn't hold anything special like In My Arms from X, which should have done better in the UK (more deservedly than Wow). At least it managed to do miles better in other countries in Europe, especially France.

In My Arms should have been the lead single from X.

It could have been so different.

Well Robbie got a no1 with Candy, his worst song to date & in my top 5 worst of 2012 so anything's possible

Madonna isn't doing well because she has a comeback almost every year & most people are sick of it

The likes of Robbie, Kylie, Britney, Eminem still have potential to get a new no1

Cher may get a top 5 on iTunes with her new single depending how its marketed, a performance on The X Factor could do the trick

Most are parents who buy for their kids though :/

yes, because he had a huge airplay hit with that single on commercial radio. his subsequent singles from that album didn't do anywhere near as well.

Absolutely. She just needs to right song and lots of airplay. I think it's unlikely she'll ever release a song as successful as CGYOOMH, but she certainly has another few huge hits in her. I know times have changed, but Cher and Madonna were both older than Kylie when they released their biggest singles.

I expect Radio 1 will totally ignore her regardless though with their terrible ageist policies. They seem to thing young people can only listen to artists under the age of 30...

If he can get it with that single then Kylie can do it with backing of Roc Nation or whatever their called

whatever she releases needs to be appeal to commercial radio. rihanna is also managed by roc nation and her last two singles underperformed here due to radio not playing them as much as her other songs.

not in all cases. i mean they play will.i.am's music, yet they decided against playing robbie williams's music who is only a year older. their choices seem to be based on genre as well as age.
