If she agrees, Beyonce will be working with longtime James Bond composer John Barry. She will then join that ranks of Shirley Bassey, Gladys Knight and Tina Turner as the only African American women to the have the honor of creating the theme song for such a long lasting franchise.
Shirley Bassey did not one, but three theme songs - 'Goldfinger' (1964), 'Diamonds Are Forever' (1971) and 'Moonraker' (1979).
Gladys Knight sang 'License To Kill' in 1989.
Tina Turner did 'Goldeneye' in 1995.
Earlier this year, Beyonce honored Tina Turner at the Grammy Awards 2008.
