There are certain pop music collaborations that exist solely within our dreams, one of which would be a duet featuring Kylie Minogue and Enrique Iglesias. The Aussie pop princess and Latin God have made our dreams come true with Beautiful (which you can hear below), a track that will feature on Kylie’s upcoming LP Kiss Me Once and Enrique’s Sex + Love.
Picking up on the trend of artists naming tracks Beautiful (as previously showcased by Mariah and Miguel), Beautiful is a soft, sizzling romantic ballad that kicks its tempo up a notch through its killer chorus (and now I just want you to know…). Whilst the track has split pop music fans, we think it puts a highly original spin on the romantic ballad – packing this vocoder filled anthem with a modest sultry charm.
In even more exciting Minogue news (no, it’s not Dannii’s pop comeback, just yet anyway), Kylie has also popped an album sampler online – giving us a sneak at the standard edition album’s eleven tracks. Among the standouts are Pharrell produced disco-funk gem, I Was Gonna Cancel, and eighties inspired dancepop number, Les Sex. We’re not too convinced about the R&B flavour of Sexercise though.
Shakira, Paloma Faith, Foster the People, Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga, and Blondie are also releasing albums on the 17th of March so save your pennies pop fans.
