ReceptionEdit

Critical receptionEdit

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

Commercial performanceEdit

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

Music videoEdit

The music video for "Black and White" premiered on Kylie's YouTube channel on the day of the songs release, and was directed by Katerina Jubb. Robbie Daw from Idolator likened the visual to that 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." 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".
