Dannii Minogue is an Australian dance-pop singer, songwriter, actress, television personality, radio personality, fashion designer and model. She rose to prominence in the early 1980s for her roles in the Australian television talent show Young Talent Time and the soap opera Home and Away, before commencing her career as a pop singer in the early 1990s. Minogue achieved early success with hits such as "Love and Kisses" and "This is It", though by the release of her second album, her popularity as a singer had declined, leading her to make a name for herself with award-winning performances in musicals with Grease and also in Notre Dame De Paris as well as other acting credits in the Vagina Monologues and as Lady Macbeth. The late 1990s saw a brief return to music after Minogue reinvented herself as a dance artist with "All I Wanna Do", her first number one UK Club hit.
Minogue has released five studio albums, six compilation albums, twenty-eight singles, and five video albums. She released her debut Australian album Dannii in October 1990. It peaked at number twenty-four on the ARIA Albums Chart and was a moderate success. In June 1991, the album was released with additional tracks in the United Kingdom as Love and Kisses. In the UK, it reached number eight and produced five singles. Her debut single was the title track "Love and Kisses" which peaked at number eight in the UK, and at number four in Australia where it was certified gold. The second single "Success" made the top twenty in the UK, peaking at number eleven, and the top thirty in Australia, peaking at number twenty-eight.
Her second album, Get Into You, was released in October 1993. The album did not perform as well as her debut, peaking outside of the top fifty in Australia and the UK. After a brief hiatus from recording music, Minogue released her third album Girl in September 1997. The album, composed of dance and electronic music, produced three number one club songs in the UK. In March 2003, she released her fourth album Neon Nights. Inspired by dance music from the 1980s, the album was certified in gold in the UK. It produced four singles, all of which became number one on the UK Dance Charts.
In 2007, she released a compilation of tracks that were inspired by '80s dance music, titled Club Disco. The album collected together the six singles she had released since her Neon Nights period: "You Won't Forget About Me", "Perfection", "So Under Pressure", "I Can't Sleep at Night", "He's the Greatest Dancer" and "Touch Me Like That". As a recording artist Minogue has sold over 7 million records worldwide.
