Swedish House Mafia deny Adele a Number 1 single for a second week

By Dan Lane

Despite selling over 176,000 copies over the last nine days, Adele’s Skyfall has been kept off Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart for a second week running.

Swedish House Mafia’s Don’t You Worry Child FT John Martin, has pipped the British singer’s theme song to the new James Bond film of the same name to the post. The Scandinavian DJ supergroup, who announced in June that they will be going on an indefinite hiatus after they complete their current touring commitments, have outsold Skyfall by 43,000 copies over the last week to secure their fifth Official Singles Chart Top 10 hit and first Number 1.

While Adele’s Skyfall (Number 2) may not have become the first Bond theme to reach Number 1, she is now tied with Duran Duran’s 1985 Number 2 hit, A View To A Kill, which previously held the record for the highest charting Bond theme in the 50 year history of the spy film franchise. Psy’s Gangnam Style slides one place to Number 3, while last week’s chart topper, Rihanna’s Diamonds, falls three places to Number 4. This week’s Top 5 is completed by Ellie Goulding’s Anything Could Happen (Number 5).

New Entries And High Climbers

In addition to Swedish House Mafia’s Don’t You Worry Child FT John Martin (Number 1) there are also new entries for Leona Lewis, Maroon 5, Taylor Swift and Disclosure on today’s Official Singles Chart Top 40.

Ahead of tomorrow's release of Glassheart, her third studio album,  Leona Lewis clocks up her ninth Top 10 hit as new single, Trouble FT Childish Gambino, debuts at Number 7 today.

Maroon 5 are this week’s highest climbers as their latest single, One More Night, surges 46 places from 64 to enter the Top 40 at Number 18.

Taylor Swift’s I Knew You Were Trouble enters today’s Official Singles Chart Top 40 at Number 23. The track is taken from her upcoming fourth album, Red. And finally, South London electronic duo Disclosure score their Official Singles Chart Top 40 debut with new track Latch FT Sam Smith, entering at Number 26.
