Willow Smith has covered Adele’s theme song for forthcoming Bond film Skyfall.

The Whip My Hair singer, who will turn 12 on October 31, posted a video of herself online singing the hypnotic tune.

The 46-second clip shows Willow ‘ the daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith ‘ crooning the chorus of the popular track accompanied by a piano.

A preview of Adele’s new track, entitled Skyfall, was leaked online earlier this month.

The Grammy-winner had just confirmed her involvement with the song, when she posted a picture of the front page of the score on Twitter.

Response has been overwhelmingly positive, with fans comparing Adele’s version to Shirley Bassey numbers like Diamonds Are Forever, which featured in the 1971 Bond film.

The 24-year-old star admitted she was hesitant to record the song at first, however.

“There”s a lot of instant spotlight and pressure when it comes to a Bond song. But I fell in love with the script and Paul had some great ideas for the track and it ended up being a bit of a no-brainer to do it in the end,’ she said.

Adele also described being involved in the project as being ‘one of the proudest moments of my life’.
