The music video for Sam Smith's latest release -- the theme song for the upcoming James Bond film Spectre, titled"Writing's on the Wall" -- was just released this weekend, and with it came news that the single topped the song charts in the U.K.

The gay British singer's latest track has sold over 70,000 copies and is the first Bond theme song to hit humber 1 in his native U.K., making this Smith's sixth number 1 U.K. single, Forbes reports. Smith is the first out LGBT performer to do a Bond theme and the first male British solo artist to record one since Tom Jones did the title tune for Thunderball in 1965.

"This is one of the highlights of my career," Smith wrote in an Instagram post in September, when he announced that he was chosen to sing the theme for the latest 007 flick. "I am so excited to be a part of this iconic British legacy and join an incredible line up of some of my biggest musical inspirations. I hope you all enjoy the song as much as I enjoyed making it."

Watch the music video for "Writing's on the Wall," below.
