After Daniel Craig’s return was officially announced, it has been reported that Beyonce has had several meetings with Bond producers before agreeing to record the theme song for James Bond’s 25th big screen outing, to be released in 2019.
The “Halo” singer who recently gave birth to twins – Rumi and Sir – might also rope in rapper husband Jay Z to help her write the song.
Beyonce is set to follow the footsteps of Dame Shirley Bassey, Adele, and most recently Sam Smith by recording a coveted theme tune for the iconic spy franchise. A source told the Daily Star that “the two spoke before Bey’s first meeting with film bosses and Adele told her how co-writing and performing a Bond theme gave her an amazing career hike. Not many of the themes have been as successful – but there are tens of millions of Beyoncé fans out there.”
“To tie-up a deal with Beyoncé for the theme song for Daniel’s fifth appearance as 007 would really be the icing on the cake,” an MGM studio executive added.
Earlier this month, Daniel Craig confirmed that he will return as James Bond for one final film ending months of speculation.
