Adele's Bond theme tops iTunes

 
 
 
 
Adele's Bond theme tops iTunes

Adele's theme for the new James Bond film Skyfall has shot to the top of the iTunes chart within hours of its release.

The track is hotly tipped to become the first 007 theme to make it to number one in the official chart when it is announced on Sunday.

Adele's song, which shares its title with the movie, was given its full premiere on her website at 0.07am on Friday and made available to download. Fans had been given a taster earlier in the week when it was leaked online, then swiftly removed.

The song is her first new material since her career exploded following the success of second album 21 early last year.

Previous Bond theme artists have all failed to take their songs to the top of the charts, including Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Tom Jones and Madonna, while Duran Duran made it to just number two in 1985 with A View To A Kill.

Bookmaker William Hill has given a figure of 1/2 that Adele will top the charts and retailer HMV is expecting huge sales.

The surge of sales is no guarantee of a number one on Sunday and the Official Charts Company said it would be a close-run thing with other popular acts vying for the prized slot.

Managing director Martin Talbot said: "Adele really is helping to put the top hat - or Bond-style black tie - on a classic week for singles.

"Although it will only have two days' sales to contribute towards its Official Singles Chart position this Sunday, Skyfall is likely to be chasing the tails of Rihanna's Diamonds and One Direction's Live While We're Young, both of them brand new singles.

"Given her massive popularity, we wouldn't put it past Adele to add to her many chart records by registering the very first James Bond official number one single, whether this Sunday or in future weeks."
