The Weeknd Performs ‘Earned It’ on ‘Tonight Show’ [VIDEO]
The Fifty Shades of Grey movie, which premiered Thursday night, has been a hot topic of conversation as of late. The film's soundtrack is also receiving a lot of buzz due to the Weeknd's song "Earned It." The crooner performed the track on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night.
Rocking some black jeans, a black-and-white jacket, and the new Yeezy Boosts, the Canadian crooner sang in varying octaves, switching back and forth from falsetto to mid-range quite seamlessly.
He didn't move around a lot, using his powerful voice to draw in the studio audience. Abel sang every word clearly and hit each note precisely, making for a solid performance.
A piano player started things off before the band kicked in and once the Weeknd hit those hard-to-hit notes, you could almost feel the song's impact through the television screen.
The song itself is about a man telling a woman that she's earned his devotion, and the 25-year-old does a splendid job of conveying the heartfelt words through his performance.
The OVO-affiliated artist will be playing tonight (Feb. 13) in Las Vegas at the Drais Rooftop Nightclub, according to SongKick.com. Then he'll be heading to Coachella in Indio, Calif. from April 17-19.
The Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack is in stores now and you can also purchase it on iTunes.
