Multi-award winning megastar Beyonce is being hotly tipped to perform on the next James Bond theme song after producers demanded a fresh boost to the franchise.
The past two themes (Skyfall and Spectre) have been sung by British singers Sam Smith and Adele to much critical acclaim and now bosses have decided only a hit from Queen B can match the recent record.
The Bond 25 project is set for release in November 2019 and is said to come at an ideal time for the mother-of-three who who recently released the album Lemonade to a rapturous reception.
A Daily Star source close to Beyoncé, 35, revealed: ‘This is the only project she is remotely interested in right now.’
The source added: ‘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.’
Beyonce – who is married to Jay Z – welcomed twins Sir and Rumi in June and is also mother to five-year-old Blue Ivy.
Female solo singers have had a golden track record when it comes to Bond with Shirley Bassey, alongside Adele, putting their names to classic theme songs.
Shirley, now 80, recorded 1964’s Goldfinger, 1971’s Diamonds Are Forever and 1979’s Moonraker.
The first two widely considered to be among the best songs among the franchise.
