The anticipation for “Fifty Shades Darker” just got a tad more tantalising, thanks to the released of the tracklist from the original motion picture soundtrack.
Although Ellie Goulding and The Weeknd are nowhere to be found on the album, the film’s production team has absolutely earned its keep for assembling some major pop music heavyweights to set the mood for the erotic “Fifty Shades” sequel.
Nick Jonas and Nicki Minaj joined forces for a duet called “Bom Bidi Bom”, while John Legend is lending his soulful vocals to a track titled “One Woman Man”. Tove Lo, who previously contributed to “The Divergent Series: Allegiant” soundtrack, will also be featured on this soundtrack.
Of course, no compilation would be complete without a token from Sia. The enigmatic artiste delivers a powerful pop-anthem with “Helium”. As for the next single? The honour goes to Halsey’s “Not Afraid Anymore”. The full track is expected to arrive tomorrow (Friday, 13th January).
Aside from the musicians above, other big acts on the soundtrack include Kygo and The-Dream. While most of the songs on the album are comprised of fresh tunes, Idolator notes that there could be several cover versions in the mix as well. Corinne Bailey Rae’s take on “The Scientist” by Coldplay is an example.
While we wait for more tracks from the soundtrack to premiere, fans can still enjoy the solid collaboration from Zayn Malik and Taylor Swift titled, “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever”. The former One Direction singer was recently spotted filming the music video for the aforementioned song in London.
The album will be available for pre-sale this week and is expected to drop on 10th February to coincide with the film’s premiere.
