QUEEN of pop Kylie Minogue has dropped her critically acclaimed 16th studio album, ‘Tension’.
The Western pop icon from Australia, 55, has followed up viral sensation ‘Padam Padam‘, which brought her music to a whole new younger generation of fans thanks to TikTok, with non-stop dance floor-fillers.
Kylie is the most powerful female artist who has been able to reinvent herself time and time again for more than four decades. She’s now bringing together her fans from the especially early years, spinning them around with the noughties and making artists like Drake “get out of her way” so she could release her trend setting album ‘Tension’ to a new generation from the social media age. Kylie has rightly earned her reputation as the Queen of Pop.
Speaking to Politicalite the Queen of Pop said: “Unlike my last two albums, there wasn’t a ‘theme’, it was about finding the heart or the fun or the fantasy of that moment and always trying to service the song.”
‘Tension’ is the ultra-modern follow-up to 2020’s retro disco-pop LP ‘Disco’.
Kylie’s new record gives her even more material to consider for the setlist of her upcoming Las Vegas residency.
The superstar will follow in the footsteps of fellow pop idols Sir Elton John, Adele, and Britney Spears when she takes to the stage in Sin City this November, and recently admitted he feels the three-month residency has come at the “perfect time” in her career.
She added: “It’s going to be an amazing time! It’s glamour…a little bit of Vegas, but magic. I always thought it would happen at some point. I think if I had done this earlier in my career, it might have been a bit too early. If I’d done it much later, I’d regret it being too much later. Right now, in my life – in my career – it feels like the perfect point, the perfect moment where I’ve got the catalogue, I’ve got the history but I’ve got the drive and the ambition to go so much further!”
The ‘Spinning Around‘ hitmaker went on to explain that she will always be “grateful” for ‘Padam Padam’ ahead of her residency at The Venetian Resort.
She said: “It’s been an incredible journey! I will forever be grateful for what ‘Padam’ has given me and what it has given my audience. It’s such a joy that my audience and then some have taken it as their own, all the TikToks and the Reels…it’s gone beyond anything I could have imagined!”
‘Tension’ is out now on all major music platforms.
