Kate has climbed 4 places on the Billboard Hot 100 with Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God) to secure her first ever Top 5 single in the USA, at #4! The song is the top-selling and most-streamed title in the U.S., as it tops the Digital Song Sales chart for a second week and rises to No. 1 on Streaming Songs, only more US radio play and Youtube plays would have pushed her higher in the Top 5.

  1. Ulf Ingvar Claesson

    Tremendously good news. Hope all of her back catalogue gets a “revival” (if such is needed) among younger music fans, some maybe unaware of the rich oeuvre of Kate. Such music will of course never die (ok, maybe it will be forgotten in 3 million years, if we’re still around then, but so will everything else..) but with younger listeners, a little reminder is in order.

  2. Tricia

    So pleased for this success, welcome to the wonderful music of Kate Bush new fans.

  3. Karen Newcombe

    I love all of this, great fun!

  4. Emil

    The news keeps getting bigger and better and just shows the longevity quality music has… I’m just a tad envious of all these new ‘fans’ and the rich catalogue of Kates music they have yet to discover

  5. Robert Bernardo

    So happy to see that her music is finding mass appeal here in the United States! I predict that next week she climbs all the wat to the top of the Hot 100 Billboard singles chart!
