    Words by Hannah Gransden

    There’s a lot to love about the James Bond films (the snazzy get-ups, the romance, the action) but our all time favourite part has to be the sexy soundtrack (closely followed by Daniel Craig in his swimmers, of course).

    We’ve still got after-shock shivers from Adele’s powerful Skyfall number. This time round it looks like our girl Beyoncé Knowles is going to be the songstress for the job, and who could be better suited? There’s no doubt Adele is hard to follow, but if anyone can do it, it’s the Lemonade super-singer.

    I mean, picture Beyoncé’s sultry vocals introducing the 25th film in the iconic series. Come on. We’re fan-girling already.

    The announcement comes after Daniel Craig was confirmed to play the iconic part of the MI5 agent for the fifth consecutive time and following rumours that producers are demanding a fresh boost to the franchise. Well, to quote Beyoncé herself in 7/11, ‘I’m fresher than you.’ Looks like you’ve found your girl…

    Although Queen B is yet to sign on the dotted line, sources confirm that ‘this is the only project she is remotely interested in right now. 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.’

    The source continues to say that, ‘to tie-up a deal with Beyoncé for a theme song for Daniel’s fifth appearance as 007 would really be the icing on the cake.’

    We’re over here like, icing? More like cake by the pound…

    The film is due for release in November 2019, for now, we’re majorly here for #beyforbond.
