Queen Bey‘s slow and sexy rendition of her hit single “Crazy In Love” is the perfect song for Universal Pictures and Focus Features’ much-anticipated film “Fifty Shades of Grey“, that’s for sure. But when the film is set to arrive just before Valentine’s Day this year, we figured that it might just release a new Valentine’s Day anthem for their soundtrack album.
And that totally happened.
Titled “Love Me Like You Do”, the song is produced by Max Martin, who also produced some chart-topping hits and top selling albums such as Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” and Taylor Swift’s “1989”. It is also the new single from multimillion selling recording artist Ellie Goulding. With her iconic sultry voice, the talented songstress will give you goosebumps through the song that was specifically written for the film.
Goulding has once ruled the music scene with her sophomore album “Halcyon Days” and has achieved a staggering 6 million album sales and 20 million single sales worldwide. She performed on a sold out UK arena tour last year and contributed to the success of Calvin Harris‘ recent hit “Outside”. Due to her enormous success, she has been crowned the “Best Female Solo Artist” for the BRIT Awards.
The full soundtrack list for the film hasn’t been announced yet but what we do know is that The Weekend is one of the artistes that has contributed the album with his new single, “Earned It“.
“Fifty Shades of Grey” is a long-awaited film adaptation of E.L. James’ best selling novel of the same name. Directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, the film stars Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele. Victor Rasuk, Eloise Mumford, Marcia Gay Harden, and Luke Grime are attached to star in the film as well.
The film is set to hit Malaysian cinemas on 12th Feb. But before its release, check out Ellie Goulding’s new single below:
