Kylie Minogue’s “You’re Hot”, “Love Attack” & “Guess” Surface Online: Listen To The ‘X’ Demos
Christmas came early for Kylie Minogue fans today (May 6) with three demos from the diva’s much-loved 2007 LP X surfacing online. “You’re Hot”, “Love Attack” and “Guess” were part of a 49-track, 3-disc CDR sampler that was sent around internally at the pop icon’s record label prior to the album’s release. Most of those songs have stayed under wraps for the past seven years, so this is something of an event.
It’s hard to pick a favorite because they are all adorable in their own way. “Love Attack” is the most quintessentially Kylie of the three with its throbbing synths and camp lyrics (courtesy of the ever-reliable Hannah Robinson). Even in its unfinished form, this is better than half of Kiss Me Once. “You’re Hot” has a smooth retro-R&B vibe albeit with a bubbly pop chorus (“you’re hot, you’re hot and you don’t even know it!”), while “Guess” finds the Australian club queen rapping! (It appears to be an interlude or intro given its meager 1:30 minute running time). Listen to all three gems after the jump.
