PAOLO ONESA proved to the world that he deserved his spot to advance to the next round of The Voice of the Philippines reality search as his September 8 Live Show’s winning song, “Skyfall” is currently the most downloaded song on iTunes.

Onesa’s version of Adelle’s Academy award-winning ‘Skyfall,’ which is the theme song of the James Bond film of the same title topped the list just hours after Sunday’s Live Show held at Resorts World Manila’s Newport Performing Arts Theater and aired live on ABS-CBN.

At 1:21am on Monday, Onesa’s ‘Skyfall’ moved the songs of other hit international superstars down the download chart, including the consistent number one, Katy Perry’s ‘Roar’.

Prior to that, minutes after the show, the iTunes Top 10 was dominated by the songs performed on The Voice PH with Daryll Shy’s “Balita” at number. But those were short lived as they were off the list after a few hours. Only Onesa’s song remained.

As of this posting, ‘Skyfall’ is way higher than Patti Austin’s ‘If I Believed’ at number 3, ‘All Behind Us Now’ at number 6, and ‘Say You Love Me’ at number 8.

Today’s iTunes Top 10 songs include ‘Atlas’ by Coldplay at number 4, Miley Cyrus’ ‘We Can’t Stop’ (Rank 5), Pink’s ‘Just Give Me a Reason’ (#7), Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’ (#9), and Bruno Mars’ ‘Treasure’ (#10).

Meanwhile, Onesa’s rival, Lee Grane Maranan’s ‘Losing My Religion’ ranked 12, following Lady Gaga’s ‘Applause’ that ranked 11.
