New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Kylie Minogue is shining bright at the top of this week's UK Albums Chart as new album, Golden, lands straight in at No 1. The Australian star's 14th studio album shifted 48,000 combined sales, eclipsing the first-week totals of her last three album releases, The Abbey Road Sessions, Kiss Me Once and Kylie Christmas.
Kylie tells: "I don't know where to start... Thank you to everybody who has been involved in getting Golden to Number 1. I am so overwhelmed, happy, proud, emotional and very, very thankful and grateful. Much love and many, many, many thanks."

Golden is Kylie's sixth chart-topping collection in the UK and first in eight years, following Kylie (1988), Enjoy Yourself (1989), Greatest Hits (1992), Fever (2001) and Aphrodite (2010).

Golden is also Number 1 on the UK Vinyl Albums Chart this week. With 6,400 vinyl albums sold, it is the fastest-selling vinyl album of 2018 so far. The collector appeal doesn't stop at vinyl, Kylie's Golden is also the fastest-selling cassette of the year to date and has already outsold the best-selling artist album cassette of 2017, Kasabian's For Crying Out Loud.

The record finished 13,000 ahead of its nearest rival, the The Greatest Showman soundtrack, which slips to Number 2 this week.

What's more, with just over a month to go until Kylie celebrates the big 5-0, she's already crossed the threshold in terms of hit singles - Dancing enters the chart this week at 38, giving the pop princess her 51st UK Top 40 hit of her 30-year career.

30 Seconds To Mars log their highest ever chart placing this week with America at Number 4, one slot ahead of The Courteeners' St. Jude Re:Wired at 5, extending their unbroken streak of Top 10 albums to six.
