Dannii Minogue to release We Could Be The One from BBC's I Kissed A Boy
Dannii Minogue has announced that We Could Be The One, the theme song from her BBC Three dating show I Kissed A Boy, will be released this Friday (June 2).
The anthemic banger is Dannii’s first new song in six years, though she did release All I Wanna Do 2020, a reworked version of her classic 1997 hit All I Wanna Do, three years ago.
It was co-written and produced by Dannii’s long-time collaborator Ian Masterson, who worked with her on her 1997 album Girl and 2003 LP Neon Nights. On Twitter, Dannii confirmed that remixes of the up-tempo dance-pop song will be coming very soon.
My new single, I Kissed A Boy theme 'We Could Be The One', is out 12AM Friday, June 2. Remixes coming very soon.

We Could Be The One is perfectly timed for Pride Month because all profits from the single will go to Switchboard LGBT+, a charity that has been offering support and advice to the UK’s queer community since 1974.
Dannii, a staunch LGBTQ+ ally, recorded the song especially for I Kissed A Boy, which is being billed as the UK’s first ever gay dating show. It premiered in May on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer.
Dannii’s impressive record on the Official Chart includes 9 Top 10 singles and 19 Top 40s. Her highest chart position came in 2003 when I Begin to Wonder peaked at Number 2.
We Could Be The One arrives while her sister Kylie Minogue is riding high with Padam Padam, her highest-charting UK single in nearly a decade.
Is it too soon to call it a “Minoguaissance”?
