Despite the challenge Adele states lightheartedly "it was one of the proudest moments of my life. I'll be backcombing my hair when I'm 60, telling people I was a Bond girl back in the day, I'm sure."
Adele joins a line of iconic singers who made it to the Bond franchise over the past 50 years singing title songs including "Diamonds Are Forever" 1971 singer Shirley Bassey and Sir Paul McCartney in 1979 for "Moonraker," Tina Turner for "Golden Eye" in 1995, Madonna on 2002's "Die Another Day."
