Could Sam Smith Be The First Act To Take A James Bond Theme To No.1?
He's on track to steal the top spot from Justin Bieber in this week's Official Chart Update...
Not only has Smith taken the lead, he's SMASHED it by tallying up double the combined sales of the Bieber hit. Nice one Sam!
To our surprise none of the previous 23 James Bond theme songs have made it to the coveted top spot in the UK. Adele's 'Skyfall' came close in 2012 by reaching No.2.
Meanwhile in this week's Official Chart Update, R. City and Adam Levine's 'Locked Away' holds steady at No.3 with Sigala's former No.1 'Easy Love' slipping two places to No.4.
Elsewhere in the Top 10, Ellie Goulding moves up one place to No.6 with new single 'On My Mind', whereas Calvin Harris & Disciples' 'How Deep Is Your Love' is still going strong in the chart at No.7.
Nick Brewer has a new entry at No.8 with single 'Talk To Me' featuring prolific singer-songwriter Bibi Bourelly and, up two spaces to No.9, is 'Runnin' (Lose It All)', Naughty Boy's surprise collaboration with Beyonce and Arrow Benjamin.
Check back on Friday at 6pm when the Official UK Singles Chart Top 40 is unveiled.
