UK Number 1
The Writing on the Wall becomes the first ever Bond song to reach the number one spot within the UK charts. The song track is propelling to a combined sales and streams of 70,000 copies, outranking Justin Bieber’s What Do You Mean by at least 13,000. The only other Bond theme songs that have come close to Smith’s is Adele’s Skyfall and Duran Duran’s View To A Kill.
Out of all the songs I’ve brought out in my life, I was not expecting this to even chart in the top 10, let alone number one. It’s unbelievable.
