Billy Elish contributed to the lead song of the James Bond film There is no time to die. This track came out number 1 in the UK. It was a wonderful experience; however, “No Time to Die” was not the 007 song that topped the UK charts. Interestingly, the number one song in the UK, number 007, was supposed to show the weakness of an imaginary spy.
“There’s no time to die” – The James Bond theme appealed to the UK in second place
According to The Official Charts Company, Bond themes like Adele’s “Skyfall” and Nancy Sinatra’s “You Only Live Twice” have become British hits. Still, only two Bond tracks topped the UK charts. The last “No Time to Die.” Official Charts says the track has remained on the schedule for 13 weeks. “No Time to Die” is Elish’s first and only first single.
Apart from franchising, the number 1 single is Smith’s song “Writing on the Wall”. He lasted 17 weeks on the table. According to the official Charts, Smith had six other first singles. These songs were “Money in My Brain,” “Stay With Me,” “Promises,” “Very Good at Farewell,” “La La La” and “Bed Me.” It is noteworthy that Smith’s success is similar to Elish’s success in some parts of the world.

Sam Smith tried to figure out how to add “vulnerability” to the James Bond song
According to NPR, Smith wanted the words “Write on the Wall” to be honest. “I tried to put myself in Bond’s shoes,” Smith said. “My music is everyday and it’s a brief description of my life and I wanted to bring that kind of honesty.
“In the text -” How do I live, how do I breathe? / When you’re not here, I’ll suffocate “- I wanted to feel Bond’s weakness, where you look a little into his heart,” Smith said.

Sam Smith’s other goals for “Writing on the Wall”
Smith explained why the “Writing on the Wall” chorus is so different from the rest of the song. “When it enters the choir, it’s huge – and then I wanted to say,‘ How do I live, how do I breathe? “When he sings to the song, all the air is absorbed very quickly.”
Smith wanted to write a Bond song for many years. Smith discovered that their uncle, Terry, was a 007 fanatic with many Bond posters and figurines. “I just thought how great it would be for him, his family, and other things to play this song,” Smith said. Judging by how popular “Writing on the Wall” was in the UK, Smith’s uncle should have been really happy.
