Make a comeback! Kylie Minogue’s new dance single Padam Padam becomes her highest charting single in Australia in over a decade
Kylie Minogue is racing up the charts with her new dance single Padam Padam.
The addictive track debuted at number 39 on the Australian ARIA chart this week, making it the pop diva’s first Australian top forty hit in over a decade.
The 54-year-old hasn’t scored this high since her song Timebomb, which peaked at number 12 in 2012.
Padam Padam managed to fend off the competition from hitmaker Post Malone, who scraped in at number 50 with his new single Mourning.
Kylie fans have been raving about Padam Padam on social media, with many hailing it as a major comeback for the singer.
