SLOWLY DOES IT

It's the Aussie siren's seventh Number One...

Kylie Minogue has today (November 9) scored her seventh number one in the UK single charts, meaning she has been a chart-topper in three decades.

The Aussie siren’s ‘Slow’ comes 15 years after her first Number One, 1988’s ‘I Should Be So Lucky’. It sees off stiff competition from Blazin’ Squad’s ‘Flip Reverse’, which enters at Number Two, and Robbie Williams , who enters at 10 with ‘Sexed Up’. He remains unable to repeat his album success on the single chart.

A little further back, R Kelly‘s ‘Step In The Name Of Love’ enters at 14. Welsh rockers Hundred Reasons return at 17 with ‘Burn Burn’.

On down, former Bros frontman Matt Goss stiffs in his comeback, entering at 22 with ‘I’m Coming With Ya’. Another comeback also fails to ignite a little further down. Hoary old rockers Goldfrapp enter at 26 with ‘Top Of The World’.

Jet chart at 29 with ‘The Great Test’, while Johnny Cash go in at 31 with ‘Twist’.

There is disappointment in the lower reaches of the 40 where mighty Aussie rockers and headliners on the NME Rock ‘N’ Roll Riot tour Liberty enter at 34 with ‘Rollover DJ’ and the late [/a] scores a posthumous hit at 39 with his cover of Nine Inch Nails’ ‘Hurt’.

On the album chart, Blue go straight to the top with ‘Guilty’, knocking REM’s Best Of collection ‘In Time’ down to Two. Bon Jovi enter at Four with acoustic greatest hits set ‘This Left Feels Right’. [a] miss the Top 10, going in at 12 with ‘Being Somebody’.
