The Weeknd Drops New Single “Earned It” From “Fifty Shades Of Grey” Soundtrack

||, |,

It didn’t really catch us off guard to learn The Weeknd has a song on the upcoming 50 Shades of Grey soundtrack. However, his choice of a beat on “Earned It" is much different from his typical thriller of electronic production as he makes use of a piano based orchestral produced track. This was an interesting move for the Toronto singer as his typical, highly explicit and seductive subject matter was toned down for the 50 Shades of Grey audience. Although “Earned It" serves as his typical ballad for the ladies, this tune shows a different side we don’t hear from The Weeknd very often.
