With his latest single “Cold Heart” with Dua Lipa, remixed by Pnau, poised to become No. 1 in the U.K. this week, John, 74, has seen his share of collaborations reach the top of the charts over the years. Most of his top 10 U.K. hits in the 2000s have been collabs with artists like Blue, Chipmunk and, posthumously, Tupac. He’s also seen a resurgence in catalogue songs enter the charts years after release, thanks to their use in advertisements and on streaming sites. His last top 10 hit was his 1973 holiday song “Step Into Christmas”, which ended 2020 in the top 10, thanks to streaming figures.
