1. 2 Hearts: It was four years of waiting before Kylie finally released the highly anticipated lead single from her new album. These four years ended up being Kylie’s hardest, embarking on two tours and being diagnosed with cancer, which she THANKFULLY went on to beat. The lead single she chose was the highly addictive and original “2 Hearts.”

The song is about, you guessed it, love! It has a chorus that you just can’t get out of your head. I always find myself singing the “Woo!”-s from the chorus even after the song is finished. This song is one of my favorites from X and I love the originality of it. I don’t remember many songs sounding like it when it was released! She managed to mix cabaret and pop-rock and make it sound amazing. Only the power of Kylie! The video is extremely glamorous as well! She looks incredible in it, and she looks fabulous as hell frolicking around on the piano. I love the burlesque feel of the entire video.
