    Totally agree. Her USA performance outfits and hair have been on point and scream superstar. Then you look at the UK performance we get that hideous dress on Jonathan Ross and the blandish mumsy dress on gratham Norton which just doesnít flow with the album and video looks.

    There doesnít seem any strategy and thread to the styling which is flowing from album/ single covers, to performances and interview looks.

    Itís like two different album campaigns - the USA is getting superstar popstar looking fashion and youthful. Then the UK strategy is almost on par to what I can only compare to Lulu dresses and looks like bad evening wedding guest outfit. Someone needs to take control of the whole visual aspect. Everyone is blaming the team but ultimately Kylie has a mirror and could push back like other pop stars would do. I would agree the team does seem out of depth versus her old team but maybe Kylie doesnít seem to see this as priority anymore which would be a shame.

    At the end of the day I suppose fashion is subjective and this is how Kylie want to portray herself to this market...

    Has the Dua version been picked up by any stations at all?

    Wave 105 played it 44 times
    Cool FM played it 21 times

    the first one has 679k likes on FB and the second one 769k likes so someone must listen to them. both belongs to Bauer Group so probably this is part of her deal with them

    I'm really curious to see how this deal with Bauer unfurls.

A this-will-do approach crept in about 2012 with the horrendous look created for the cover of TARS.
    I agree that for the most part the visuals have been disco-lite. I wonder if itís a deliberate attempt not to be overtly obvious with the disco imagery which would then invite a whole lot of ďtackyĒand ďstereotypicalĒ critiques.

    I think a lot of us want to see her break out the Afro and the bright pink sequin jumpsuit and thrash it out, but I wonder if the state of the world is also holding her back from being too gregarious and bold - thatís maybe she feels itís not an appropriate time to be that extra. Just a theory but it could be part of it

    You should check your own posts out! You are obsessed with trying to make out the industry is great and selling so much.. Even though as i pointed out.. The FACTS are that in the last few years, hardly ANYONE is getting a platinum album now! It makes NO DIFFERENCE if revenue is higher! Its saturated. Hardly anyone managing even 300,000 album sales in the UK which is the world's 3rd biggest music market.. That tells you ONCE and for all.. there isn't much profit being made on the biggest artists.. Save a few usual mega sellers. How many times do you need told these facts?!!! Kylie was the 12th biggest selling album released in 2020 in the UK. Just over 100k. That's barely enough to fund what they have done for the project and still make some profit

    For Christ's sake will you all stop bloody arguing over things that are totally irrelvant to this thread.

    RG is a single designed to generate further interest in Disco, but realistically it was never going to set the charts alight. (This notion that adding in Dua would propel her to the top of the singles chart was always for the birds.) There was already a video available which would have sufficed for the casual listener. There was no real demand for a video and no real need for one. It really is as simple as that.

    So now we have to wade through pages of how lazy Kylie is, how many videos Katy Perry has made whilst up the duff, the merits of J Lo's career and the stregth of the whole music industry.

    Ridiculous.

    I see a lot of dance and workout youtube channels have made videos for real groove.
