Sam Smith is on the top of the world as his Spectre theme song 'Writing's On The Wall' has become the first Bond song to hit official No. 1 in official United Kingdom Charts.
Writing's On The Wall had already topped the charts on iTunes earlier. The 23-year-old singer said that this was a special moment that he would never forget, adding it was such an honour to be asked to write and record the song.
Elated Smith even expressed his excitement on Instagram and posted:
I feel like I'm In a dream. To have the honour to do Bond is one thing but to get the first ever NUMBER ONE for a bond song is another thing entirely!! Thank you to all who played and purchased Writings on the wall this week. I think it's safe to say now, you like it hahahaha xx

Smith also beat Adele's mighty Skyfall and, as of now, the single has sold 70,000 copies since its release, which were 13,000 more than Justin Bieber's What Do You Mean?
The Stay With Me singer also announced that he was going to re-release his award-winning and chart-topping debut album In The Lonely Hour as a new double-disc set.
