Sam Smith has made James Bond history today, bagging a Number 1 with theme song ‘Writing’s On The Wall’.
‘Writing’s On The Wall’ is the official theme song for upcoming James Bond film Spectre, and it’s gone straight to number 1.
‘Writing’s On The Wall’ sold a combined chart sales and streams of 70,000 copies making it Number 1.
The theme song finished 13,000 ahead of his closest competitor, Justin Bieber’s What Do You Mean?.
Sam told The Official Charts: “It was such an honour to be asked to write and record Writing’s On The Wall and it’s incredible that it’s become the first Number 1 Bond theme song.
“It’s been an unforgettable experience working with Barbara [Broccoli] and Sam [Mendes] to become part of this British legacy. I couldn’t have done this without my fans – this is a special moment I’ll never forget.”
