'2 Hearts' seems to have most fans divided. Some love it, some find it okay, some find it just doesn't work.

If you could choose any other X song to replace '2 Hearts' as lead single, which would you have chosen?

Like a Drug or The One. Like a Drug received my vote.

2 Hearts was not the correct lead single.

The one should have been the lead single followed by like a drug. I liked two hearts but it wasnít a strong choice for lead single.

Even I dislike WOW, I think it would have been a good comeback single for her. It sounds Kylie but kinda fresh.

I love '2 Hearts' and personally think it was a great comeback. If I had to choose another though, it would be 'The One'. I imagine it would have been much better received and been a bigger commercial success - it's the sort of glittery dance-pop music that fans would have gone mad for if this dropped as her comeback, particularly after the success of 'I Believe in You', and it's proved to be a fan favourite since, too. It's got a wintery tone to it as well; I think it could have really suited the November release.

The One, Wow, Like A Drug would have all made better lead singles than 2 Hearts.

Over time, I've came around to the idea it probably should have been 'The One'.

'2 Hearts' should have simply remained an album track.

I really like 2 Hearts and really liked it at the time together with its iconic video with the swinging microphone, don't know why there is so much dislike of it here!

Surprised 'Like a Drug' didn't get more votes; I recall the times before that this discussion has come up that 'Like a Drug' and 'The One' were the two that were most preferred to be lead single.

I can see why 'Wow' would have made a strong lead single but I've always been happy with that being single #2 tbh.

Answer to first question...'The One' of course should have been the lead for this project, it would have been a massive hit instead of it being bumped to single #4 with only a digital release and a crappy music video. That was a total injustice to a song this magnificent and honestly could have given her 8th and final UK #1 single. I also think that 'White Diamond' got wrongly shafted and that should have at least made the album, or maybe make her big comeback single a double a-side 'The One/White Diamond', now that would have been awesome.

This is what I think this era should have went =

Single #1 = 'The One/White Diamond' (or maybe just 'TO', which could have worked just as well)
Single #2 = 'Like A Drug'
Single #3 = 'Wow'
Single #4 = 'In My Arms'

For the American Market = 'Speakerphone', 'Like A Drug' & 'In My Arms'.

Answer to the 2nd question is No, I do not think that '2 Hearts' was a good lead single at all, because firstly it doesn't represent the album at all and secondly it doesn't have that wow factor like some of the other tracks do. I think maybe this should have been a promo release only.

A run of 'The One', 'Like a Drug', 'Wow' and 'In My Arms' does seem pretty solid and like it would please the most amount of people.

I do wonder what the team think about '2 Hearts' and its release as lead single now. Clearly they thought it had a killer comeback sound about it at the time.

The One would have likely been a semi big #1 for her I feel.

That said, I love 2 Hearts and think its one of her best, it was a good idea to release something people didn't expect but I guess the public wanted something more "Kylie"

This is my sentiment exactly. I personally think '2 Hearts' showed that X was an era where she was going to take chances and experiment with sounds and styles more; very much a "I've still got more to give and will not be beaten" type of attitude. Plus it's a genuinely great song.
