The official video for ‘Earned It (Fifty Shades Of Grey),’ the track by the Weeknd from the upcoming Island soundtrack for the ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ movie, is now complete and we have it for you here. As we reported recently, the soundtrack album will be released on February 10, with the film itself following on Valentine’s Day.
The video, like the movie, is directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, and the clip stars the leading actress in the film, Dakota Johnson, along with The Weeknd’s Abel Tesfaye. ‘Earned It’ is the only song that is featured twice in the film. Last week, the song was the most added track of the week in the Urban radio format in the US, and the second most added at Rhythmic Radio. The Weeknd, the name under which Ontario, Canada-born Tesfaye records and performs, will be playing at the Coachella Festival in April.
The soundtrack combines catalogue material from Frank Sinatra (‘Witchcraft’), the Rolling Stones (‘Beast Of Burden’), a 2014 remix of Beyoncé’s ‘Crazy In Love’ and more, with new material by artists such as Sia, Ellie Goulding, Jessie Ware, Skylar Grey and others.
The original score has been composed by four-time Oscar nominee Danny Elfman. The soundtrack can be pre-ordered from iTunes here.
