The Weeknd Heats Things Up on ‘Earned It’
The Weeknd has made a name for himself in the bump-and-grind music department with tracks like 'Often' and his rendition of Beyonce's 'Drunk in Love.' So it only makes sense for the crooner to be part of the soundtrack for one of the sexiest films of 2015: 'Fifty Shades of Grey.'
'Earned It' kicks off with a dramatic, thumping beat and features his supple vocals floating over the mid-tempo ballad. The track has an old cabaret feel, which makes it an effort that could easily be performed in a dark and smokey club in a hidden corner of town.
"I love when you call unexpected / 'Cause I hate when the moment's expected / So I'ma care for you / I'ma care for you / 'Cause girl, you're perfect / You're always worth it / And you deserve it / The way you work it / 'Cause girl, you earned it," he sings.
The sensual track is the film soundtrack's first official release and is available on iTunes now. The full album will release digitally on Feb. 10, 2015, just before the film premieres in theaters on Feb. 13.
