Bush now holds the records for the longest time for a track to reach No. 1 on the UK Official Singles Chart; oldest female artist to reach No. 1 on the UK Official Singles Chart; and the longest gap between #1 spots on the UK Official Singles Chart.
Previous record holder Cher, who was 52 when her hit “Believe” took No. 1 in 1998, took to Twitter to congratulate Bush.
“Bravo Kate, records are meant to be broken! Remember back in the day when women had SHORT SALE DATES!?” Cher tweeted. “We had 2 matches to break our way through the testosterone curtain, and we did it so the girls who came after us could sing as long as they wanted. With mega respect.”
