Elton John and Dua Lipa Enter Australian Singles Chart With “Cold Heart” (PNAU Remix)
It marks a welcome return to the Australian Top Ten singles chart for Elton John; the first since September 1997 – when ‘Candle In The Wind (1997) / Something About The Way You Look Tonight’ took up its 6-week residency at #1, going on to achieve 14x platinum accreditation and of course cementing its place in global music history.
This remarkable reception for ‘Cold Heart (PNAU Remix)’ has also flowed through Elton John’s ‘Diamonds’ collection ascending to #13 on the ARIA albums chart.
Boasting well over Platinum accreditation – the collection has now spent a mammoth 143 weeks in the ARIA Top 50.
Elton John has enjoyed 31 ARIA Top 10 albums in Australia – including 7 number one albums; a run of five consecutive from January 1973 to May 1975, with Don’t Shoot Me I’m Only The Piano Player, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Caribou, his 1974 Greatest Hits and Captain Fantastic & The Brown Dirt Cowboy.
Those spells at #1 are cumulatively 30 weeks; marking SEVEN months with a #1 album in Australia.
‘Cold Heart’ PNAU Remix looks set to continue Elton John’s impressive chart history as new generations discover his rich and enduring catalogue – continuing the decades-long chain of cultural pervasiveness of his body of work through collaborations (most recently seen with ‘Learning To Fly’ [with Surfaces] and ‘It’s A Sin’ [with Years & Years], film (Gnomeo & Juliet, Rocketman), samples (2Pac ‘Ghetto Gospel’), musicals (Aida, Billy Elliot) and more avenues of perpetual discovery and rediscovery.
