    There is a game on the french radio France Bleu (quite big national radio) to win Disco, and they talked about it several times this morning. Good to hear Kylie's name on french media. This has not happened since 2014 when kiss me once had not flopped yet https://www.francebleu.fr/culture/mu...sco-1613565174

    - Magic has been a true airplay hit. Peaked at #30 on the airplay chart and stayed in the chart for 4 months which hasn't happened to a Kylie song since the Aphrodite era (I'm not even sure All The Lovers stayed in the airplay chart this long)
    - The video has also been played on TV channels, something that hasn't happened to a Kylie song in years (last time someone told me they had seen a Kylie video on TV, it was Into The Blue)
    - There was a lot of news report and media coverage at the time of the album's release and in the following weeks
    - Several radios have held competitions to win DISCO albums or tickets to Infinite Disco (and there's a new one currently with France Bleu to win DISCO (LP+CD+signed photo) + a turntable)
    - Infinite Disco also got quite a bit of media coverage (through the competitions to win tickets but also news reports or reviews)
    - All the journalists, radio hosts or other professionals that have talked about DISCO so far have praised its quality, something totally unusual for a Kylie album in France
    - Kylie herself has done 2 interviews (for Quotidien and RTL) + she's recorded short messages to introduce "Magic" for some radio stations
    - I heard radio ads to promote DISCO on my local regional station (Hit West) shortly after the album's release, something I had never heard before for a Kylie album since being a fan (2005)

    So just because Kylie herself is not appearing every 5 minutes on French TV or radio doesn't mean the era is "discreet" in France. In fact, the French public has definitely not been this aware of a new Kylie era in 10 years. BMG and Magic have done a fantastic job for her here. Real Groove's airplay is picking up quite fast on small and local stations, so now we can only hope and wait for big regional/national stations to playlist it as well and it might replicate Magic's success. To have 2 airplay hits in France this era would be just incredible! (and most certainly guarantee sell-out tour dates here once Kylie can tour the album!)

    So Magic rebounced on the Belgian airplay charts from 59 to 42 in week 19 (21 weeks in the top 100)

    That's awesome news! And quite unexpected too! Now we need Wallonia to start playing Real Groove more so that it encourages France to follow haha It felt like this was the way it worked for Magic anyway XD

    By the way, I've been a tad too optimistic regarding Real Groove's airplay in France following its addition to France Bleu's playlist. I said it would definitely enter Charles Pons' unofficial airplay Top100 this week but I was wrong, sorry!! I wasn't too far off the mark though, I asked Charles Pons where it was on his chart and it's at #... 102! 😅 Hopefully it will enter the Top100 next week though since its airplay keeps on building up nicely on small stations and a few regional ones. Charles Pons also told me that from next week, his airplay chart will become a Top200 and include many more stations in its panel so I can't wait to see if it works in Kylie's favour or not! Will let you know guys!
