After spending three weeks in the chart, Sir Elton John and Dua Lipa climb to Number 1 position with electronic mashup ‘Cold Heart’.
This is Sir Elton John’s second Number 1 this year after ‘It’s a Sin’ with Olly Alexander.
Talking to The Official Big Top 40 host Will Manning, Sir Elton John reveals “Well at my age, having one number one song in the singles chart is an incredible surprise and for me, an achievement. So, two is ridiculous. I mean this is a dream come true”.
He later went on to thank Dua Lipa and Australian electronic producer trio PNAU for bringing a “younger element”.
Sir Elton John lightheartedly shared that he had phoned last week's Number 1 artist Ed Sheeran to let him know the news.
"He was thrilled for me. We are great friends".

Even after all this time making music and putting it out there, a number 1 still means so much and I couldn’t be prouder of the song, @DUALIPA and @pnau for what we’ve produced. pic.twitter.com/KEwEsZBblE
