Having collaborated with many chart-topping artists throughout the decades, Elton John made headlines around the globe in 2021. He returned to the recorded music charts when he teamed up with Dua Lipa on their recent smash hit Cold Heart (PNAU REMIX), which hit #7 on Billboard’s Hot 100, #1 on its Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart and #1 on the UK singles chart upon its release. The song has been streamed over 1 billion times on Spotify worldwide and most recently won Top Dance/Electronic Song at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards. Cold Heart (PNAU REMIX), is a combination of Elton John’s most iconic tracks, including Sacrifice and Rocket Man.
Kiki Dee and Elton John made waves nearly 50 years ago with their number-one song Don’t Go Breaking My Heart, which marked his third stand-alone single after Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds and Philadelphia Freedom.
Brandi Carlile has been a fan of the international legend since she was 11 years old and hosted his 30th annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party. The two have formed a life-long friendship and in 2021 released Simple Things, which was part of Elton John’s The Lockdown Sessions album.
