2 Hearts is what all us Kylie fans have been waiting for. After Kylie's recovery we were all waiting with baited breath for any sign of news of the new album and finally with 2 Hearts, we had it. A swaggering, charming slice of glam-pop-rock, the chorus is just awesome. The 'Wooooh's!' are infectious and are just how this song makes you feel, it's uplifting, and at 2.55 in length, manages to pack a lot of punch into such a short song.
Destined to become a Kylie classic, the video is the icing on the cake, Kylie looking absolutely fabulous as usual, rocking her stuff on top of a piano with a sparkly skull microphone and explosions of glitter. Awesome!
The b-sides are also worth a mention. First up is the Alan Braxe remix - not so much a dance version, but more of a re-working, this extends the song and slaps a nice bassline onto the tune. Check out the Kish Mauve remix though, that's where the magic really begins!
Then we have 'King or Queen', a delicious continuation of Kylie's R&B stylings on Body Language. It's cute and has some great little Gameboy style sound effects in it. One of Kylie's best b-sides, even if you aren't a hard-core Kylie fan, it's most definitely worth checking out.
