Elton John’s latest hit Cold Heart – a collaboration with Dua Lipa remixed by Australian electronic trio Pnau – has officially earned him a new impressive record. Sir Elton John is now the first solo artist to score a UK Top 10 single in six different decades. Before he set this new record, five other legendary musicians had landed at least one top 10 single in five different decades – Elvis Presley, Cher, Cliff Richard, Michael Jackson and David Bowie.

Mashing up his previous hits Sacrifice, Kiss the Bride, Where’s the Shoorah and Rocket Man, the legendary singer’s collaboration with Dua Lipa and Pnau went to No 4 in September, becoming his 33rd Top 10 song on the Official UK Singles Chart.
