Reception[edit]

Critical reception[edit]

"Black and White" has received positive reviews from music critics, with Robbie Daw of Idolator commenting, "somehow Kylie has found her old-school dance music mojo again, and we’re all the better for it".[2] Digital Spy whilst expressing surprise at the collaboration, nevertheless remarked, "there's something oddly warming about Shaggy's slightly stilted rap reassuring Kylie: "I need you in my arms, girl"".[3]

Commercial performance[edit]

"Black and White" first appeared on the charts in Scotland, debuting at number 72.[4]

Music video[edit]

A music video for "Black and White" premiered on Minogue's YouTube channel on September 11, 2015. The video was directed by Katerina Jebb.[5] Robbie Daw from Idolator likened the visual as reminiscent of the Hollywood golden era, "looking like a silver screen goddess from Hollywood’s golden age in a little two-piece number, shaking her flawless body around in a wedding veil and showing off her hula dancing skills."[6] Rebecca Merriman for Daily Mirror similarly noted, "shot in black and white, with some distortion, the sensual vintage style video echoes old Hollywood and is definitely a departure from her Showgirl days" and went on to note, "there are some stranger moments - like when she hangs off a tree - but it is proper vintage Kylie behaviour".[7]
