Kylie Is Less Than Impressed That Cheryl Hit The No.1 Spot With ‘Crazy Stupid Love’

Cheryl may have been toasting the success of her fourth number one hit with 'Crazy Stupid Love', but Kylie Minogue isn’t revelling in the Geordie’s success.

The pop track which was originally recorded by the Aussie singer, was Kylie’s first choice for a catchy track on her new album, but her management team Roc Nation pulled the song.

According to The Sun, 'Crazy Stupid Love' had been recorded for Kylie’s album Kiss Me Once, but management felt it didn’t have enough of an RnB feel.

The album later failed to place in the top ten, and now Cheryl’s success with the track is said to have angered Minogue.

A source told The Sun:

“Kylie recorded the track with songwriter Wayne Wilkins and loved it. But Roc Nation felt it was too pop. They wanted her tracks to have a cool R&B edge. Months later Cheryl was in the studio with Wayne working on other album tracks and he played it to her.

“She knew she had to have it but decided to re-write a lot of the verses to make it her own, and that’s why she has a writing credit. It was also her idea to get Tinie Tempah to rap on it.”

The source added that Kylie is “not exactly happy” that the track was pinched by Cheryl, who has re-launched her career with the tune.
