Adele Scores Chart Boost In America After Oscars 2013 Performance

8 March 2013, 12:12

The 'Rolling In The Deep' singer's album and single 'Skyfall' have both climbed the chart in the US this week.

Adele's success at the 85th Academy Awards at the end of last month has given her music a sudden boost on the American charts this week.

The 'Someone Like You' singer performed live for the first time in over a year at the Oscars ceremony (24th February), singing her James Bond theme 'Skyfall', and her music has shot up both the singles and album chart as a result.

Adele's now two year-old album '21' jumped up four places to number ten on the Billboard Top 200 album chart, selling an estimated 27,000 just over a week after her Oscars appearance, marking the first time the record has appeared in the top ten since November 2012.

As well as a successful album charting Adele's 'Skyfall' single also rose from number 32 to number ten on the Billboard Digital Songs chart, after selling 105,000 downloads since the Oscars, and rose up thirty places to number 33 on the US Billboard Hot 100.

This marks the song's first time within the Hot 100 top 40 since December last year.

It was rumoured recently that the producers of the James Bond films are hoping to convince Adele to record the theme song for the next song in the franchise as well.

Adele is expected to continue work on her third studio album over the next year.
