There are quite a few people who I look to as legendary in the world of pop. Kylie is one of them - I think what's made her such an appealing character for me - as I'm sure most of her loyal fans will agree - is her chameleon-esque manner of evolving to a new type of pop music with each and every new album. "2 Hearts", her first single since 2005's Xenomania-tastic "Giving You Up" and first single from new album "X" is proof of this.
It's a completely different sound for her, as ever, and is something not too dissimilar to what Sugababes were aiming for with "Easy"/"Good To Be Gone" from their best of package. Coming on like a fascinating hybrid of Goldfrapp, Marilyn Monroe and any glam rock band you care to think of, "2 Hearts" is the most slinky, most alluring, and most definitely barnstorming of all pop records around at the moment. Not for the faint hearted, this is going to be huge in the coming weeks.
