KYLIE MINOGUE's latest album has flopped in the US charts - despite unusually heavy promotion from her record company.

The singer's album - X - is her fourth release in the US, but her tenth overall.

It was released on April 1 in America and sold just 6,000 copies to score its debut position at number 139 on the Billboard 200.

Minogue, 39, did extensive interviews across the American talk show circuit, with appearances on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and the syndicated Ellen DeGeneresShow.

But the Australian singe has had difficulty replicating her international fame in the United States, where her only other Billboard 200 appearance was with her

1988 debut Kylie, which peaked at number 53.

X debuted at one in her native Australia and two in Britain after its international release last November.
