Before Sam Smith scored the coveted role of latest James Bond theme creator, the world thought Lana Del Rey would be given the spot for Spectre. Her aesthetic lines up with the beloved British series...she truly has 'Bond girl' written all over her. 

Alas, we were given "Writing's on the Wall"... even though Lana really, truly wanted to do the latest Bond song?

She explains all in an interview with the NME: "I would’ve done it if I was asked but I wasn’t asked. I love all of the Bond music that’s been put out over the years and I love soundtracks in general."
