Sam Smith has two new Guinness World Records to his long list of accolades.

The British singer and multiple award winner’s theme song for the new James Bond movie Spectre, ‘Writing’s on the Wall’, has become the first song in the franchise’s more than 50-year history to hit number one in the UK Singles Charts.

Meanwhile, his debut album – "In The Lonely Hour" – has stayed in the UK Top 10 Album Charts for 69 consecutive weeks, earning him a double-honor.

The latter accomplishment breaks the previous record held by Emeli Sande, whose album stayed there for 63 weeks.

On his Instagram page, the 23-year old singer shared the pictures of the records and we are so proud of him:

Speaking about the achievements, Smith said:

“This is so amazing! It’s such an honor to be recognized by Guinness World Records. It’s been an unbelievable 18 months – The album exceeded even my wildest dreams thanks to the incredible support of my fans, and to record the first ever Bond team to reach N0.1 in the UK is a real privilege.”
