After Adele, Sam Smith, Tina Turner, Madonna, Sheryl Crow or the group Garbage, which artist is going to be able to interpret the song of the new James Bond, "No Time To Die"?  It was on Agent 007's official Twitter account that we learned last night that singer Billie Eilish had been chosen! She should therefore soon unveil the song "No Time To Die", the title of this twenty-fifth film.  We learn in passing that the singer, who has just celebrated her 18th birthday, was the youngest artist ever asked to perform a soundtrack of "James Bond". Teenage star Billie Eilish made herself known thanks to a first album entirely recorded in the bedroom of her brother, FINNEAS, also a musician.  Very quickly, her voice, her style at the same time melancholic and modern, allured the teenagers of the whole world. Her look is unique. The success was such that in December, it received the very first Apple Music Award from the artist of the year, which takes into account the number of plays on the platform. Solicited by the public and by professionals, Billie Eilish was unanimous.  His first album, "When we fall asleep, where do we go?’’ broke records, making her the first artist born in the 21st century to have seven singles rated gold and two platinum.
