Beyonce Gives "Crazy In Love" A Dramatic Makeover
"Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh..." Bey's classic gets a spooky makeover for '50 Shades.'

While the jury’s still out on whether the movie will be any good, the 50 Shades Of Grey soundtrack is quickly becoming one of the most exciting releases to look forward to hearing in 2015.

As we’ve known for some time now, BeyoncĂ© is heavily involved in the film’s soundtrack, having supplied us with an incredibly sensual and spooky rendition of “Crazy In Love.” Plus, her BEYONCÉ tracks “Ghost” and “Haunted” were featured in the film’s most recent trailer. And now, there’s a new name to add to the list: The Weeknd. Listen to his contribution after the jump.

Last night, the falsetto songsmith released “Earned It,” a steamy new track from the forthcoming movie soundtrack. The song is also the first official release from the soundtrack out now on iTunes, with the soundtrack arriving on February 10. Set above a swaggering, classic-sounding waltz, the crooner lays on a kind of old-fashioned charm. “I’mma care for you,” he pledges on repeat, “’cause girl you’re perfect/You’re always worth it, and you deserve it.” What a gentleman!

What do you think of The Weeknd’s contribution to the soundtrack? Let us know in the comments below.
