It’s fun to have another number one at this point in my career but, I am even more excited that it’s with my daughter and that we get to share this together!
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) November 11, 2015
Having topped practically every Billboard chart - from Pop to Country to Hot 100 - Olivia Newton-John has scored another #1 hit, this time on the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart with, “You Have to Believe.” With this single, Olivia also marks her first collaboration with daughter Chloe Lattanzi, where the duo is making history as the first mother/daughter team to ever reach #1 on this chart. To date the only other record of mother/daughter Billboard chart toppers is The Judds (who have achieved numerous #1’s on the Country charts.)
“You Have to Believe,” a reworking of Newton-John’s #1 hit, “Magic” from the film Xanadu, finds new alchemy for Olivia and dance music wizard Dave Audé, who has already scored 108 Number Ones on this chart. The infectious dance track features new verses written by Lattanzi, Audé and Australian singer/songwriter Vassy, with the original chorus by longtime Newton-John hit-maker, John Farrar. The original “Magic” spent four weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1980.
“I am so excited that this collaboration with my daughter and Dave Audé has reached #1 on the Dance Club Songs chart,” says Newton-John. “It’s fun to have another number one at this point in my career but, I am even more excited that it’s with my daughter and that we get to share this together!”
Lattanzi, who makes her Billboard chart debut with “You Have to Believe” echoes her mother’s excitement with the success of the song: “Having had the chance to work with my mom was such a great learning experience,” says Lattanzi. “Now add to that being #1 makes it icing on the cake – I’m so proud of being a part of such an amazing team!”
In addition to her chart-topping status with “You Have to Believe,” Chloe has also been in high-demand since the debut of the song’s music video, which also enjoyed success reaching the #2 spot on the “All Music Videos” chart on iTunes in August. After seeing the video, former Backstreet Boy, Nick Carter, immediately created a role for Lattanzi in his upcoming SyFy Channel zombie film, Dead 7, which is scheduled for broadcast in early 2016. Lattanzi is currently in the studio working on the follow up to her latest #1 hit.
For Newton-John, 2015 has proven to be a chart topping and award-winning year for the 67-year-old. Earlier this year she and fellow Aussie, John Farnham, debuted at #1 on the Australian Aria Chart with “Two Strong Hearts,” the live recording of their 2015 concert tour. The CD went on to receive an Aria Award nomination and, the live DVD held the #1 spot on the Aria DVD chart for 10 weeks. In addition, Newton-John continues to pack houses at the Flamingo Las Vegas with her ongoing residency, “Summer Nights.” Follow Olivia on Twitter @OliviaNJ and Chloe on Instagram and Twitter @ChloeLattanzi.
