A long way from the fuzzy-haired Neighbours girl.

Are you old enough to remember the good old days of the early 2000s? At the time Australia’s sweetheart Kylie Minogue was entering a bit of a golden age having released her Fever album which featured undeniable bangers ‘Can’t Get You Out Of My Head’ and ‘Come Into My World’, the latter of which earned her a Grammy for Best Dance Recording.

It’s hard to fathom now with the likes of Flume, Dom Dolla, Rüfüs Du Sol, and even Fisher all being recognised by the Grammys in recent years, but at the time it was a massive deal. ‘Come Into My World’ marked the first time an Australian recording artist had won in a major category since Men at Work in 1983…

Now, thanks to her viral hit, ‘Padam Padam’ Kylie has done it again, having just taken home the Grammy for Best Dance Recording with the once-fickle US market seemingly embracing our Kylie who also kicked off a Vegas residency last year.


The tune has seen massive success through avenues that didn’t exist back when Kylie won her first Grammy; the song has amassed over 225 million streams and over 500 million views across over 150k creations on TikTok, Instagram Reels and YouTube Shorts.
