How Elton John Keeps Up His Hot 100 Hot Streak With Dua Lipa Duet 'Cold Heart'

On the Pop Shop Podcast, we talk about all the reasons the Rocket Man stays relevant after 50-plus years on the Hot 100.

Elton John made his Billboard Hot 100 debut in August 1970 with "Border Song," and now, he's back on the chart this week with a 68th (!) hit, the new Dua Lipa duet "Cold Heart (Pnau Remix)" -- but just how does he do it?

The song debuts at No. 81, marking John's first Hot 100 appearance in 21 years, since "Someday Out of the Blue" ranked at No. 99 on the July 29, 2000-dated chart after earlier peaking at No. 49.
