"It's No Secret" is a song by Australian singer-songwriter Kylie Minogue taken from her debut studio album Kylie (1988). The song was written and produced by Stock, Aitken and Waterman, who were also the producers of Minogue's first four studio albums. The song was intended to be released as the fifth single from Kylie, but due to the success and longevity of Kylie's massive selling duet with Jason Donovan, "Especially for You", over Christmas 1988 and the following new year, it was only released in a handful of countries. In the United States, "It's No Secret" was released as Kylie's third single where it reached the top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100.
"It's No Secret" debuted at #47 on the New Zealand Singles Chart, where it peaked for one week. To date, this is Minogue's worst performing single in New Zealand. In December 1988, the song debuted at #90 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, managing to peak at #37 in February 1989. In total, the song spent a total of thirteen weeks in the Hot 100, making the song one of Minogue's longest-spanning single on the chart itself.
The clip was shot in Port Douglas, Queensland. It starts with Kylie behind the counter of a diner, her boyfriend asking for money, she later sees him with another girl and walks out. Next she alights off a train and she is seen walking down a train track amongst the cane fields in a strapless top and jeans, arriving at a beach house, singing to a photo of her ex-boyfriend, sitting beside a waterfall, arriving poolside in a dress at Mirage resort Port Douglas and lastly on the beach.
