Kylie Minogue - Tension

Theory time!

Was Hands put to the Barbie OST with a gap for a feat, declined, and then inexplicably included in the final cut of Tension?

That or Kylie tread a line with some racialised pronunciation in her demo for it, rightly noted that's not quite the jam, and decided to step it back a bit. Hands is a banger, it's just...not Kylie?
I'm convinced to be honest it was submitted as an inclusion for the Barbie soundtrack. It sounds like a perfect fit among the other tracks that did make it. And the name drop of Barbie, just feels so random otherwise.

Well for 14 seconds it really isn't her singing.

Yup was thinking this as well.
 
Didn’t listen to any leaks so had only heard the singles.
Good album. Immediate stand outs are One More Time and Vegas High for me.

Hands, is terrible.
 
One More Time is hitting now, dunno why people hate it dddd

I'm so happy for all the success she's having, is overwhelming knowing that she's still strong than ever. The album might not clicked for me at first, I had to listen a few more times, but now the majority of the songs are still playing in my head. Things We Do For Love has a special place in my repeat button. Can't wait to get a physical copy, i'll wait a little more for a japanese release to see how is the tracklist
 
If I was to go back now and listen to the album leaks that I avoided from May onwards, are they different in any way to the final mixes? I don't want to bother if they are just unmastered versions of the same mixes.
 
I’m wondering if she can score her biggest first week album sales since Fever with this record. 30k+ on day 1, with streams still yet to be included and the pop-up still queuing round the block.. I don’t think 100k (or close to) is out the question?

Given that the number 1 looks likely this week, any surprises being reserved for week 2 would be a good idea. Depends on whether BMG would prefer a 'biggest opening sales week of the year' headline or they want to try and extend her #1 spot.

First week sales wise, these are the albums to beat:

Lewis Capaldi, Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent - 95,000
Ed Sheeran, Subtract - 76,000
Taylor Swift, Speak Now (Taylor's Version) - 67,000
Olivia Rodrigo, Guts - 60,000

I love this album more with every listen. It’s becoming an addiction. The outro in Things We Do For Love is one of her best moments… ever? The way it builds and becomes more intense with each line, ending with a passionate “I believe in true love.” It’s like her musical ethos in one section.
