Kylie Minogue scores highest UK chart position in more than 10 years with Padam Padam
The Padamic currently gripping the UK reaches fever pitch today, as Kylie Minogue secures her highest Official Singles Chart position in more than 10 years.
After passionate fan campaigns across social media, Kylie's strange, hypntoic electro-pop tune Padam Padam clambers up an impressive eleven places to arrive at Number 12.
It becomes Kylie's highest-charting song in the UK in more than 10 years, since she reached Number 8 with Taio Cruz collab Higher in 2011, while equalling the chart position of the wistful 2014 single Into The Blue.
As we've explained before, there are a myriad of reasons why Padam Padam has captured public attention and resulted in something of a chart renaissance for our favourite Australian pop princess.
And what's even more impressive is that Padam Padam has continued to improve week on week on the Official Singles Chart. It originally debuted at Number 26 two weeks ago, before rising to a brand new peak of Number 23 last week, and improving again today, up to Number 12.
With plenty of fans still energised by the unfolding single campaign, is the sky the limit here? If Kylie manages to engage more and more people...could this even go all the way into the Top 10 next week?
It certainly wouldn't be wise to count her out at this point, would it?

And we have more to celebrate as another icon makes her return to the Official Singles Chart this week. The Queen of Pop Madonna returns today with Popular - her collaboration with The Weeknd and Playboi Carti taken from HBO’s The Idol - debuting at Number 21. It’s her 72nd Top 40 single, and highest-charting UK hit since the Number 3-peaking Celebration in 2009.
