Who would have thought that there was actually going to be a film adaptation for the “young adult” sexy time fiction novel Fifty Shades Of Grey. The only thing that may have come out of this is that The Weeknd has recorded a song titled “Earned It” for the film’s forthcoming soundtrack.
In the new track you can hear The Weeknd trying to add a little bit of that Motown flavor with his futurist R&B. The string sections in the background add a nice fresh flair compared to his usual electronics tinkering behind his vocals.
You’ll hear him along others such as Jay Z and Beyonce when the film hits theaters next year on February 14, 2015. For now, stream his newest track below:
