The Weeknd is crafting a sultry video to accompany his new song “Earned It,” which is part of the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack, and ahead of the video’s release the singer is giving fans a behind-the-scenes look into his dark visual for the film adaptation of E L James‘ erotic novel.
In the clip, posted on YouTube, the Canadian singer wears a black suit while scantily clad models dance on stage.
“I feel like the film and my music is a match made in heaven,” he says in the video, shot at the Palace Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. “If you listen to my album, even the past work I’ve done, it’s very Fifty Shades of Grey.”
The full video will premiere later this week.
