Singer Adele is known for her sultry voice and emotional lyrics, but the British babe is the latest to become a Bond Girl. The 24-year old singer has just released her single for the new James Bond movie starring Daniel Craig and it has already gone to number one iTunes

Listen to Adele Sing the James Bond Theme <i>Skyfall</i>

Just when we thought you couldn’t get enough of Adele, the British singer has to go and become a Bond Girl. The 24-year old has just released her single for the upcoming Bond movie Skyfall and we can’t stop listening!

Coming in after news of her plus-size line for Burberry, Adele is bringing all of our favorite things from the United Kingdom together. The track was recorded at Abbey Road (of Beatles fame) with a 77-piece orchestra and after its debut this morning, Adele kicked Rihanna’s Diamonds from the top spot.

How typical of a spy much like Adele, sneaking up from behind to take the top spot away from a competitor. The single was co-written with Rolling in the Deep producer Paul Epworth and is the first new song the singer has dropped since her album 21.

50 years to the day after the release of the first James Bond movie, Adele hopes to make Skyfall the first number one James Bond theme.

Marking today Global James Bond Day, Adele looks to be bragging about her Bond girl days to her children one day . The singer elaborates, ”I’ll be backcombing my hair when I’m 60, telling people I was a Bond girl back in the day, I’m sure.”

So good luck to Adele come Sunday against One Direction and Rihanna when the Official Singles Chart position is revealed, but much like the Bond girl Adele truly is we’re sure the competition won’t stand a chance.
