Bush now holds the records for longest time for a track to reach No.1 on the UK’s official singles chart; oldest female artist to reach No.1 on the UK’s official singles chart; and longest gap between No.1 spots on the UK’s official singles chart.
Previous record holder Cher, who was 52 when her hit “Believe” took the top spot in 1998, took to Twitter to congratulate Bush.
“Bravo Kate, Records Are Meant 2 Be Broken!! Remember Back In The Day, When Women Had SHORT SELL BY DATES!?,” Cher tweeted. “We Had 2 Fight Our Way Through The Testosterone Curtain, & We Did it So The Girls Who Came After Us Could Sing As Long As They Want To. With Mega Respect.”
