26 February 2013

Adele's record breaking is showing no signs of slowing down with reports that the singer's James Bond theme track, 'Skyfall', is expected to see a huge boost in sales following her performance at the Oscars last weekend.

The Grammy-winner perfomed the ballad for the first time in front of a live audience on Sunday and judging by how fantastic her performance was, industry experts at Billboard have revealed that they expect to see a 45% jump in digital download sales. Wowza!

Shirley Bassey also perfomed at the Oscars and is set to see an even bigger rise of 275% for her bond hit 'Goldfinger'.

Although other Bond themes were great, such as the ones Paul MacCartney and Carly Simon did, 'Skyfall' topped it off completely as it was the first James Bond theme to win an Oscar in the entire history of the franchise.

After Adele's win, she revealed that she hasn't yet decided where to keep her award and jokingly said she would find a place in her bathroom so she can look at it everyday.

The 'Someone Like You' singer is currently working on her latest album which will be her third album but it's still early stages, as she told reporters at the 2013 Grammys earlier this month.
