Elton John Becomes Oldest Artist To Top Australian Singles Chart

Elton John has become the oldest artist to top the Australian singles chart as his collaboration with Dua Lipa, “Cold Heart (Pnau Remix),” hit No. 1 on the ARIA Singles Chart.

At 74 years, 7 months and 14 day, the legendary singer-songwriter overtook Paul McCartney at the oldest artist to reach No. 1.

Debuting at No. 7 in late August, the track has spent all of its twelve weeks on the chart in the Top Ten, including five straight weeks at No. 2.

It becomes John’s first No. 1 single in Australia since “Something About the Way You Look Tonight” / “Candle in the Wind 1997” topped the chart in September 1997.

For Dua Lipa, it is her first ARIA Singles Chart No. 1 after having eight previous Top Ten entries.

“Cold Heart” is the lead single from John’s 32nd studio album, The Lockdown Sessions.

The album, released in October, debuted at No. 2 on the ARIA Albums Chart last week.
