As the Brits soak up the best mid-summer weather in recent memory, Kylie Minogue is in the sunniest position of them all.
The Aussie pop princess is sprinting to the U.K. albums chart crown with Step Back In Time – The Definitive Collection (BMG/Rhino) off the back of her “legends slot” performance at Glastonbury Festival on the weekend.
Kylie is creaming it. Her career retrospective is No. 1 on the Official Chart Update, outpacing the second placed Lewis Capaldi’s Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent (EMI), by a ratio of 2:1, according to charts compiler the OCC.
All told, she’s nabbed 34 Top 10 singles and landed 51 in the Top 40.
Kylie’s performance at Glastonbury Festival made the evening news on both sides of the globe, and was a ratings blockbuster for BBC One, drawing 3 million viewers in its Sunday night primetime block.
