Kylie Minogue

Yes but at the time it was very clear that it was trying to regain some of the footing that she had lost with Radio 1 (the only radio station that really mattered at the time for singles success). The fact that Radio 1 dumped her for a different version was clearly not part of the plan given she had Radio 2 support at that time anyway.
It wasn't Kylie's release though, she was just the featured artist on Taio's song, the fact she was on it at all was likely down to it being written for her to use on Aphrodite and that falling through. Taio's label clearly knew Kylie would help sell it to radio 2 and Travie would do it for Radio 1 and the US.
Acts, especially female ones, never really reclaim radio 1 once they lose anyway.

At that point they had just not playlisted the third single from Aphrodite. It wasn’t clear that they had dropped her completely given that All the Lovers had been A listed for weeks. I understand the advantage it would have for Taio, but there was no reason why Kylie would record it other than to regain footing she had lost - which didn’t happen due to the Travie version. There’s obviously a reason why she hasn’t mentioned it for years.
 
Maybe she just liked the song and wanted to be on it?
She was getting older and Get Outta My Way had underperformed despite having backing, radio 1 is especially fickle when it comes to female acts who start to drop off.
There are a lot of song that Kylie doesn't mention, she's got 39 odd years worth of them.

I mean I don’t think even Kylie remembers Higher. Despite it being a hit she’s never done it on tour (bar a few nights on Aphrodite I think), left it off the GH album and hasn’t so much as referenced it since it was released. It remains a minor bop though.
To be fair, aside from "Especially For You" and "Where The Wild Roses Grow," Kylie doesn't really seem to acknowledge her collaborations, whether it be during live performances or on the tracklists of her Greatest Hits albums.

Other than those and Higher I don’t think she’s released any other other collaborations as singles that haven’t appeared on her studio albums? Certainly not any other ones that were hits.

Lots of ones from this century that weren’t hits like the one with Giorgio Moroder, Coldplay etc.

There have been loads, maybe not "hits" but none of them are on any of her albums.
She needs to collate them onto a mini album cause her collabs are all pretty decent.
 
I find it odd that there was even a version made available to radio without Kylie. To me that screams of Taio being super shady. But I guess we’ll never truly know.
If memory serves me right, the narrative that was circulating back then was that Kylie’s management didn’t even know about it and the whole thing was a surprise. Word was that Get Outta My Way not making the top 10 was responsible for her being dropped from Radio One. No one’s ever confirmed anything but it seems very plausible.

Radio One were just looking for an excuse but she had a long run.

Goes to show how brutal the music industry is.
