    Her ONLY chance of getting a top 10 hit again/hits radio airplay, streaming playlist - i.e. the whole package, would be as the featured artist of a track by a major chart force.

    She will never have a major hit single as a solo artist ever again. I'm willing to put money on this.
    It's a shame Kylie did reach out to Adele to duet on Guest List as that would have almost certainly give Kylie a top 50 hit.

    I donít know if this was a tease or not or just a flying comment, but on the Jonathan Ross show Kylie did say Ed Sheeran owes her a favour for doing backing vocals on his track, and whilst I would have limited interest in this collaboration, this might not be too unlikely.

    I am sure you all know this. But Dannii record a demo of chers believe as part of her early recordings for Girl. The song at that point was more of ballad, was not finished. When it was offered to cher the versus was re-written and the song turned into a dance song on instruction of cher.

    In the early 00's danniis demo appeared for sale in a shop, but was removed form sale. Dannii has talked about recording the demo and so have some of the writers... all clear to say the song was different to chers song.

    I did not know Dannii was part of this song's history! Well done! I did hear that the song was extensively worked on and rewritten so could of gone a number of ways.

    Simple answer is ďnoĒ!

    The charts work in such a different way now, streaming is more important to the singles chart than actual sales, and Kylie fans (on the whole) are still far more likely to buy physical copies/ downloads than to stream the song and build up counts.
