music news 08/03/2022

Summer's officially over and there were many great tunes that were blasted on repeat. 

'Cold Heart' by Elton John and Dua Lipa has been crowned the 2022 song of the summer, according to ARIA. This song was the biggest hit from December to the end of February outpacing Adele's Easy On Me. 

This single made Elton John the oldest artist to hit the top of the ARIA singles chart and in the UK, the first artist to achieve top 10 singles in six different decades.

The track's breezy, uplifting vibe and the vocals helped the hit to earn the number one spot. 

"With Pnau records we have a similar intent, which is a burst of positivity and joy; it’s celebratory. We essentially wanna lift people up, and I think this record has that in the way that the lyrics tell a tale and melodically, it rouses you" said Nick Littlemore of Pnau, the producer of the hit. 

That’s all we really need right now in the world, these uplifting records. Obviously, the audience has responded to that feeling, and it’s amazing to be part of this energy.

Adele's Easy on Me is ranked 5th on the Top 20 songs of the summer 2022. Ed Sheeran's Bad Habit and Shivers ranked 6th and 7th respectively. The list would have been incomplete without Mariah Carey's iconic All I Want For Christmas is You and this was the 20th song on the list!
