Seen a few reports claiming that Kylie's recent Sigala collaboration was considered for the lead single to Kylie's 14th studio album before she found a new inspiration in Nashville.

Would 'What You Waiting For?' have made a good lead single (of course assuming that was the sound she persude for her album)?

By large, i don't think it would.
Dancing, done what it needed to do for the Golden album.
That said, i feel it would have made a good follow up to Dancing with Stop Me From Falling following up as the third single.

So pleased this wasn’t the lead! We would have had a KMO style success if it had of been as it doesn’t represent the album at all.

If it had been the lead, Golden would not have done any better as an album but i would be confident it wouldn't have sold as good as it has to date.
The likely outcome as you say would have been an album on the same success as Kiss Me Once.

No, Dancing has a more thumping sound than this bland progressive house track.

It's worth noting that What You Waiting For would have had a totally different production had they kept it for Kylie's album - we can't really consider the track we've ended up with on the Sigala album as being what she'd have hypothetically released. So I can't really consider whether it would have been good or bad lead.

Regardless, I think she made the right call to change course and go with a sound that seemingly rejuvenated her passion, so Dancing was the perfect choice. What You Waiting For? was going to have a poppy production, so maybe it'd have been seen as same old, same old.

Yeah, exactly. He said himself he's totally changed it from what it was when it was first suggested as something from Kylie's album last year.

It probably wouldn't have been an ideal lead single in its current form, but I'm pretty sure it was probably poppier/more commercial in its original form.

For Kylie, it is also better she done her comeback solo and not reliant on a name to get her back in the Top 40.

personally I'm glad this wasn't the Kylie lead so that we got it as a dancey Sigala song, and besides, 'Dancing' did its job as lead single perfectly.

This! So many acts can have dance collab huge hits and then go on to relative failure with follow ups so I’m pleased the Sigala track and any success it may or may not have will be separate from Golden.

A collaboration like this I feel is better at the end of a campaign as it helps stretch the era a bit further, it's like recent cheat codes and little mix collaboration it help keep tgeir album ticking over once they had released all their own main singles from the album.

No - it wouldn’t have made a good lead single. Her voice is over processed and for me, it’s a step back like something she might have done 10-15 years ago. In comparison, golden as an album is more fresh sounding and relevant to her as an artist now.

When was WYWF recorded? Before Kylie started working on her whole Golden album?!? It's hard to believe that Sigala held back this song for so long, so I don't think those reports are true... WYWF might have come along when Golden was in the works or already finished, so it would have been a bad lead single, because Golden's style is too different.

Sigala was interviewed by Official Charts Company in June 2017:

QUOTE
How does someone like Kylie approach you about doing a song?

“In that case it was through the co-writers of the song. This song, which is hopefully going to be a Kylie single, I actually wrote for myself with a woman called Gina KushKa and these songwriters called The Invisible Men, who worked with me on Say You Do.

“I always loved the song but I wasn’t sure it was right for me, so I asked them to help find another home for it. They’d already been working on songs for Kylie – they played me loads of stuff they’ve done for her album the other day – so that was a good in with her and her team. They played her the song and apparently she loved the song from the word go."

That’s kind of amazing isn’t it? Imagine have a place in Kylie's discography?

“It’s really bizarre for me! She was and still is one of the biggest names in pop. I haven’t met her yet, but hopefully we will when we finish off the song.”

http://www.officialcharts.com/chart-news/s...terview__19381/


So it's certainly been a long time coming, and it's noteworthy that he said above "Hopefully going to be a Kylie single", i.e. at that stage it was up for consideration on her album, rather than his.

Thanks for sharing, Jay! So Sigala might have hoped back then that WYWF would made it on the album, but the producers figured out it wouldn't make sense - and they were right!

Would love to hear the song in its original form - I’m sure it’ll leak at some point.

I think more than anything, the reason it didn't make the album as during the recording process the direction of it totally changed and resulted in Golden.
