Adele's theme tune to the new James Bond film Skyfall has missed out on the top spot of the official UK singles chart after Swedish House Mafia beat her to the post. No Bond theme has ever topped the charts in the UK and it had been thought Adele's effort could achieve the feat, the BBC reported.
But after entering the countdown at number four last week, it only managed to climb two places, losing out to the electronic group's Don't You Worry Child
According to the Official Charts Company, last week's top track, Diamonds, by Rihanna, fell three spots to four.
Korean rapper Psy's internet hit Gangnam Style kept its place in the top three after eight weeks of release.
The album has also helped her receive numerous other awards, including two Brit Awards and three American Music Awards. The album has been certified 15 times platinum in the UK and in the US the album has held the top position longer than any other album since 1985.
