‘I’ve been blessed!’: After the clip circulated online, fans went wild seeing the pair jamming to the track, which broke records since featuring in the latest series of Stranger Things.
The 1985 track then reached the top of the UK charts last month after it appeared in the popular Netflix science fiction series and went viral on TikTok.
It reached the top of the Australian charts, the first time Kate has had a number one in the country since 1978, when her debut single Wuthering Heights claimed the top spot.
The song – written by Kate Bush from her iconic Hounds of Love album – also soared to the top of the Australian charts and hit number one in the iTunes chart in the US.
And since her popularity surged, singer Kate has reportedly earned £1.9million from her hit song Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God).

And entertainment data company Luminate has estimated that Kate, 63, has made £1.9million in streaming royalties since her hit’s revival as she owns the entire copyright to her music.
Rob Jones, the CEO of Luminate, told CBSMoneywatch: ‘While we’ve seen a notable increase in catalog music streams in recent years — with an annual 20 percent growth alone in 2021 — the Kate Bush story has taken the phenomenon to a new level.’
He also revealed that Running Up That Hill has become the most streamed song both in the US and worldwide after featuring in Stranger Things.
The singer-songwriter recently told BBC Radio 4’s Women’s Hour of the renewed interest in her music: ‘It’s so exciting, it’s quite shocking really, isn’t it?
‘The whole world’s gone mad!’

She added: ‘The thought of all these really young people hearing the song for the first time and discovering it is, well, I think it’s very special.’
The songstress also admitted that she hadn’t listened to her track in quite a while as she doesn’t tend to replay her ‘old stuff’.
Elsewhere in the rare interview, Kate revealed that her son Albert, 23, things it is ‘pretty cool’ after her song Running Up That Hill was featured in the show.
Host Emma Barnett asked the musician what her son Albert McIntosh – known as Bertie – thinks of a new generation discovering her music.
She said: ‘I think he thinks it’s pretty cool.’

Asked if Bertie is a fan of the show, Kate answered: ‘We all are! Our friends kept saying ‘have you seen Stranger Things?’ when the first series came out so eventually we binge-watched it and have been watching it ever since.’
After welcoming a legion of new fans thanks to Max’s fight against villain Vecna in Stranger Things, Kate told how she thinks it’s ‘lovely’ that her song has been used as a backdrop for the character’s survival, lauding show makers for using it in a ‘ positive way’.
She explained: ‘I think they put it in a really special place. The Duffer brothers created the series and we watched it right from the word go from the first series onwards, so I was already familiar with the series.
I thought what a lovely way for the song to be used in such a positive way, as a kind of talisman for Max. It’s really touching.’
Kate’s song – the lead track on her Hounds Of Love album – peaked at number two behind Harry Style’s As It Was, but it was later revealed the 80s song had pipped the former One Direction star to the post.
She has now become the oldest female singer to achieve a UK No. 1 single, taking the record from Cher, who reached the top spot with Believe in 1998.
It is Kate’s first time at number one since her debut single, Wuthering Heights, hit number one in 1978 when she was just 19. This means she has also bagged the record for the longest gap between number ones at 44 years.
Running Up That Hill is also currently sitting in the number one spot in Australia, New Zealand, Sweden and Switzerland, and has achieved a new peak in the US charts at number four.

It originally reached number three in the UK upon its release and charted again in 12th place in 2012.
Sharing her joy at her song reaching a new audience, she gushed: ‘Yeah! What’s really wonderful I think is that it’s this whole new audience who in a lot of cases, they’ve never heard of me. And I love that!
‘The thought of all these really young people hearing the song for the first time and discovering it, I think it’s very special.’
On what her song – originally titled Deal With God – is about, she explained: ‘I really like people to hear a song and take from it what they want.
‘But originally it was written as an idea of a man and a woman swapping places with each other just to feel what it was like from the other side.’
