Multiple Grammy Award winner. Global platinum seller. Now Adele can add one more title to her esteemed list: electronic dance diva.
The songstress reaches her highest mark on Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart with "Skyfall," which jumps 16-13. That bests her previous peak on the chart, "Rolling in the Deep," which hit No. 14 in May 2011.
"Skyfall," the platinum-selling title song from the James Bond film soundtrack, is a torchy, minor-key ballad -- not the stuff that dancefloor hits are made of. And it doesn't have any official remixes, at least not stateside: XL Recordings released a set in Germany only. But that didn't stop Billboard's DJ panel. Many reporting members created their own club-ready versions, driving it up the chart.
Adele, 'Les Mis' Secure Oscar Nominations
It's not the first time Adele has seduced remixers with her powerful alto and singalong songcraft -- far from it. During the last few years, she's become one of dance music's most prominent voices, thanks to a flood of remixes in every conceivable genre, from dubstep to downtempo. As with "Skyfall," many are unofficial projects, although some were commissioned through XL and released only overseas.
