No, Billie Eilish Didn't Debut 'No Time To Die' Video


A video for Billie Eilish’s 007 theme song “No Time To Die” was trending Monday – even though it’s fake.

Someone in Brazil using the name “Game Kill” spliced together scenes from the No Time To Die trailer with clips from a 2018 video for Eilish’s “bitches broken hearts” to create the bogus video. Only the vocals and piano track are used.

The phony video was uploaded Sunday to a YouTube channel with the singer’s name. In its first 24 hours on the platform, the video garnered nearly 1 million views.

While most fans were quick to realize they were duped ("This is fan made y’all," read one comment), ET Canada fell for it. In a post it later deleted, the outlet reported "...on Monday she unveiled the track's music video. Scenes from the film, featuring star Daniel Craig, are interspersed with footage of Eilish..."

Eilish released “No Time To Die” last Friday but there's been no word on when the official music video will debut.

The 18-year-old, who is the youngest artist in the history of the 007 franchise to record a theme, penned “No Time to Die” with her brother and musical partner Finneas O’Connell. Johnny Marr of The Smiths plays guitar on the track, which features orchestral arrangements by famed composer Hans Zimmer and British conductor Matt Dunkley.

“It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way,” said Eilish, in a release. “To be able to score the theme song to a film that is part of such a legendary series is a huge honour.”

Adele performed the Skyfall opener and Sam Smith recorded the theme to Spectre – and both won Best Original Song at the Academy Awards.

Appearing on a British radio show, Smith said they like Eilish’s song. “It’s so beautiful,” they said. “She’s done such a beautiful job, and she’s kept it classic, which I’m so happy about. I’m really impressed, I think it’s amazing.”
