Despite declaring that she was not ~ yet ~ recording the theme song for the upcoming James Bond film, Dua Lipa is said to have been asked to record the song and will even film its accompanying music video this summer. The singer will join the cast and crew of the 25th installment of the popular 007 franchise in Italy this August.
An Italian publication called Sassilive reported that Lipa has been asked to shoot the music video for the soundtrack in Italy. The film will be shot between the end of August and through September in the city of Matera – where Lipa would be recording the music video. More details, and confirmation of this news, should be coming up in the next few weeks – including the name of the movie.
This is a massive opportunity for Dua Lipa. Past performers of the Bond films include the likes of Adele and Sam Smith – who both won Oscars for Best Song for their respective work in Skyfall and Spectre. It will be interesting to see what Lipa will bring to the table, after all Adele and Smith are vocal powerhouses – something Lipa is not necessarily.
