On Monday, Billie Eilish became the youngest singer to win a Golden Globe for her song ‘No Time To Die’ title track. She is a 20-year-old Multi-Grammy Award-winning singer.
She wrote the song with her brother Finneas O’Connell for the James Bond movie of the same name and made history today.
Their James Bond theme was nominated alongside Carole King & Jennifer Hudson (“Here I Am” from Respect), Van Morrison (“Down to Joy” from Belfast), Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Dos Oruguitas” from Encanto), Beyoncé (“Be Alive” from King Richard).
Billie Eilish Talks About Making Of The Song
“No Time To Die” is the first Bond film to be distributed by Universal Pictures, which received the internal distribution rights following the expiration of the Sony Pictures’ contract.
The track was released twenty months before the release of the movie, which kept getting pushed back due to Covid-19 related delays. While being a part of the Bond film, she stated:
“It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way. To be able to score the theme song for a film that is part of such legendary series is a huge honor.”
At the same time, her brother Finneas added,
‘Writing the theme song for a Bond film is something we’ve been dreaming about doing our entire lives. There is no more iconic pairing of music and cinema than the likes of Goldfinger and Live And Let Die. We feel so so lucky to play a small role in such a legendary franchise, long live 007.’
Billie’s fans took to Twitter to show their support for the singer and called her ‘Queen of Award Shows’:
