R+B star Akon is one step ahead of Sean Combs and Jamie Foxx as they compete to become the first black James Bond - he's slated Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger to be 007's next sexy sidekick.
The Smack That hitmaker has admitted his desire to break into acting by becoming the first black star to play the secret agent.
The pair teamed up for Scherzinger's solo project, and Akon insists she would be his first choice for a Bond girl, because the Hawaiian-born singer's beauty transcends race.
He says, "She would definitely be my Bond girl. She's perfect, she's exotic, she can fit with every nationality."
