The name's Eilish. Billie Eilish. And she's shaking things up by becoming the youngest artist ever to sing a James Bond theme song for the spy film franchise's upcoming 25th installment, No Time to Die.

Eilish joins the elite ranks of three-time theme singer Shirley Bassey, Louis Armstrong, Paul McCartney, Tina Turner, Adele, Sam Smith and more superstars tapped for the same special assignment since the 1962 release of the series' first film, Dr. No. 

Billboard previously visited the 007 theme songs and analyzed where they charted on the Billboard Hot 100. Here's which songs became top 10 hits: "A View to a Kill" by Duran Duran (No. 1, dated 1985), "Nobody Does It Better" by Carly Simon from The Spy Who Loved Me (No. 2, 1977), "Live and Let Die" by McCartney & Wings (No. 2, 1973), "For Your Eyes Only" by Sheena Easton (No. 4, 1981), "Skyfall" by Adele (No. 8, 2012), "Die Another Day" by Madonna (No. 8, 2002), and "Goldfinger" by Bassey (No. 8, 1964).

But which is the best Bond theme song? Vote below!
