Beyonce is on the '50 Shades Of Grey' soundtrack, and we think these songs belong there too!
Beyonce revealed that she's got a role in 50 Shades Of Grey! No, she's not starring in the BDSM-enthusiast flick, but she does have a hand in the soundtrack. Queen Bey posted an Instagram video featuring a teaser clip of Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey getting cozy with a woman who we assume is Dakota Johnson as Ana Steele, though we never see her face.
And the sounds in the clip? It's Beyonce singing an even sultrier rendition of the "uh oh" refrain from "Crazy In Love." Tune in below:
It's a teaser for the trailer, and oh, what a tease it is!
It's not the first tie Queen Bey has had to Christian Grey and Co., either. In a previous trailer screened only for critics, the footage from the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie was underscored by Beyonce's song "Haunted."
Beyonce is perfect for a 50 Shades Of Grey score because, well, what human being on the planet is sexier than she is? But there are still plenty of other tracks that would fit right into the film's themes of love, sex, possession and obsession. We've rounded up the 10 best songs to fill the Fifty Shades Of Grey soundtrack!
1. Rihanna, "S+M"
If we need to spell this out for you, then Fifty Shades Of Grey is not for you.
2. The Police, "Every Breath You Take"
The 50 Shades book trilogy and the film both deal with elements of obsession on behalf and towards multiple parties. And it's not always all fun and games and handcuffs.
3. Beyonce, "Partition"
This movie is about sex. This song is about sex. And let's be real: I can't turn down any excuse to reference "He Monica Lewinsky-ed all on my gown." Plus, wouldn't Christian Grey be into the whole "Bill as the boss" role?
4. Nine Inch Nails, "Closer"
Aggressive, sexual, passionate, dirty and a little scary. That about sums it all up, doesn't it?
5. John Mellencamp, "Hurts So Good"
A classic, and, well, the title sort of says it all here.
6. Rita Ora, "Crazy Girl"
Rita Ora nabbed the role of Christian Grey's adoptive sister, Mia Grey, when she appealed to the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie producers to have a role in the soundtrack. If you're familiar with the story, you'll know that this song can apply to some of Grey's exes ... as well, to some extent, to Ana Steele and Christian Grey themselves.
7. Biz Markie, "Just A Friend"
You know Jose is singing along to this as he pines over Ana.
8. Nazareth, "Love Hurts"
In 50 Shades Of Grey, love hurts (and scars) in more ways than one.
9. Simon And Garfunkel, "Mrs. Robinson"
To avoid any spoilers, I won't say why, but really, how many of you actually care about the plot?
10. Lady Gaga, "I Like It Rough"
