Billie Eilish's new James Bond theme song features one of the most challenging notes of her career to date.
Billie Eilish has finally released her James Bond theme song and people are living for the note at the end of 'No Time to Die'.
It's been an amazing 2020 for Billie Eilish so far. Over the course of the past few weeks alone, the 18-year-old star has made Grammys history by becoming the first woman to ever win all four major categories at the awards show in one night. Billie's also performed the In Memoriam at the Oscars and now she's the youngest person to record a James Bond theme song.
Billie dropped 'No Time to Die' last night and it screams Bond. Produced by her brother Finneas, the song is dark and grand and it contains live strings and trumpets. However, it's Billie's vocal performance that is really capturing people's attention.
Billie is known for her captivating almost whisper-like style of singing. For the most part she's received praise for it but some trolls have accused her of not being able to sing. When asked about the criticisms she gets in a Vanity Fair interview, Billie said: "Like my voice is really soft and it's not belty and shit... and that people think that I whisper in all my songs.'
Billie then added: "And like, I do in a couple songs, but I feel like people just say that when they've heard one fucking song. Like, listen to 'wish you were gay'. That bitch a belting. And like, my belt is not even close to a fucking Adele belt. Adele is like a literal God, but it's just different. Like, you don't have to be shouting to be good at singing."
In 'No Time to Die', Billie shuts her critics down. The song is intimate and quiet but it builds to a rousing chorus and at the 3:21 mark Billie delivers potentially the biggest note of her career. Naturally, fans can't get over it.
Here are just a few of the reactions so far.
We have no choice but to stan.
