The first 50 Shades of Grey trailer teased us with a sexy and sultry rendition of Beyonce‘s – ‘Crazy in love, which let’s be honest basically set the tone for what was expected from the the movie – music wise, that is.
However, earlier this week songbird Ellie Goulding released the official music video for her ballad from the film titled ‘Love Me Like You Do‘.
The video, in true 50 Shades of Grey style teases us with visuals from the movie itself. Just like the build-up between Steele & Grey, it features Goulding showing off her ballroom dancing skills. However, in the final minute things get steamier with the pivotal lip-biting scene and plenty of hot scenes. Think Christian’s scarred chest, blindfold, whips and ice cubes to accompany the bare thigh close-ups.
This music video was just in time to whet our appetite for another song featured in the film by The Weeknd. The Weeknd who is known for his ‘below-the-belt’/provocative songs fitted perfectly into the film’s soundtrack with the music video for ‘Earned it‘.
Honestly, I think the music video is perfect. At first I did have a bit of a problem with it, but then in the context of the film, the NSFW video hosts butts and whips and features Dakota Johnson (Anastasia Steele) tied up and suspended from the rafters in her almost bare self. (They could have added a shirtless Jamie Dornan).
Let me know what you think about the music videos and songs?
The film is set for release 13th February. So if you alone for Valentine’s day (like me) treat yourself.
