One month away from her 50th birthday, Kylie Minogue is back with her 14th effort, Golden. The Aussie icon has been through a long and hilly road since her debut hit Locomotion. We all remember her early teen pop hits as well as the ground-breaking comeback Can’t Get You Out Of My Head, but apart from these two periods her career seems much more obscure.
Often described as the rival of Madonna, we begin to wonder how legitimate this is. Indeed, if she only recorded a pair of successful eras out of a dozen, she is hardly a Queen of Pop, not even the Princess as she is nicknamed. She isn’t a nobody though as shown by the #1 debut of Golden in both the UK and Australia. So, where is the truth? How big Minogue really is?
As usual, I’ll be using the Commensurate Sales to Popularity Concept in order to relevantly gauge her results. This concept will not only bring you sales information for all Minogue‘s albums, physical and download singles, as well as audio and video streaming, but it will also determine their true popularity. If you are not yet familiar with the CSPC method, the next page explains it with a short video. I fully recommend watching the video before getting into the sales figures. Of course, if you are a regular visitor feel free to skip the video and get into the figures.
