"Come into My World" is a song by Australian recording artist and songwriter Kylie Minogue, which was released on her eighth studio album Fever (2001). It was released as the fourth and final single from the album. "Come into My World" was written by Rob Davis and Cathy Dennis, who also wrote Minogue's successful single "Can't Get You Out of My Head". It was later produced by the writers as well. "Come Into My World" is a dance-pop song, which interludes pop and disco style. Lyrically, the song talks about a man Minogue likes that she would like him to come into her world. "Come Into My World" received generally positive reviews from music critics, with many liking and enjoying the lyrical content.
The song had some success throughout the world. The song had peaked at number four in her native Australia and number eight in the United Kingdom. The song also managed to chart on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, where it peaked at number ninety-one. The accompanying video was shot for the single, featuring duplicated Kylies walking in Paris, France with a lot of local townspeople. It also received generally favorable remarks for the video, praising the idea. The song was later honoured with a Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording in 2004, becoming Minogue's first and, to date, only Grammy Award.

With the success of the previous single "Love at First Sight" in the U.S., Minogue announced she would release a fourth and final single, which "Come Into My World" was chosen as it. The song was written by Rob Davis and Cathy Dennis, as well as produced by them. But at the time of the release, Minogue released the Australian promotional track "Fever" from the album with the same name. So the single was later released after it on 2 November 2002. But there were two versions recorded for the single. There was an album version of the single and there was a single version, which was not released digitally. However, the single version was released on Minogue's 2004 compilation album Ultimate Kylie (2004).
"Come Into My World" received generally positive reviews from music critics. Chris True of Allmusic.com considered the song to be a highlight of Fever. NME drew comparisons between the track and "Can't Get You Out of My Head", writing "In fact ('...Head' is) so good that it crops up twice on 'Fever', the second time masquerading as another number called 'Come Into My World'." Pitchfork Media wrote that "'Come Into My World' is a more traditionally disco-oriented track, reminiscent of Eumir Deodato's fantasy soundscapes, and with the alluring refrain, 'Come, come, come into my world.'" PopMatters gave it a positive review, noting that "'Come Into My World' is also a plea for love, even if Minogue begs the listener to 'Come . . . come . . . come into my world' and instructs to '[take] these hands that were made to touch and feel you'."
The song had debuted and peaked at number eight on the UK Singles Chart, becoming a consecutive top-ten for Minogue, but didn't last long in the charts. The song debuted and peaked at number four on the Australian Singles Chart, staying in the charts for nine weeks. The song was certificated gold by the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA). In New Zealand, the song debuted at number thirty-four on the charts, then rose to number twenty, peaking there and stayed on the charts for eleven weeks.
In the US, the song peaked at number ninety-one on the Hot 100, becoming a low-score on the charts, but managed to peak at number twenty on the Hot Dance Club Songs. The song reached the top twenty in Italy, Denmark and Spain as well as peaking at number seventy-eight in France. In Latin America the song reached number sixty-six in Chile and number one in Mexico.
The video was directed by French director Michel Gondry and updated a concept that he had used in Neneh Cherry's "Feel It" music video. The video was shot on 8 September 2002 at the intersection of Rue du Point du Jour and Rue de Solférino, in Boulogne-Billancourt, Paris. Fifty extras were on hand, including Russian actor Sacha Bourdo. It took over fifteen takes to create the desired effect. Fifteen days were required for the video's special effects. The video was released in Paris on 21 October 2002.
The accompanying video features Kylie strolling around the streets surrounding an intersection within the Boulogne-Billancourt suburb of Paris, France. Each time she completes a circuit of the area, a new Kylie emerges from one of the stores (which is in fact the 'old' Minogue, that did the circuit the first time around), and each of the people in the background are also duplicated in slightly different positions. By the time the video concludes there are four unperturbed Minogues amidst an extremely chaotic scene with each background extra also depicted four times. The video ends as a fifth Minogue emerges.
Slant Magazine placed the video for "Come Into My World" at #1 on their "Best of the Aughts: Music Videos" list. The reviewer compared the video to Zbigniew Rybczyński's short animated film, Tango. Pitchfork Media placed it at #14 on their list "The Top 50 Music Videos of the 2000s". Scott Plagenhoef said of the video: "Arguably the most re-watchable video of the decade, Michel Gondry pulls out the 'Star Guitar' multiplication trick and applies it to Kylie and the streets of Paris." Complex placed it at #79 on their list "Top 100 Music Videos of the 2000s".
