The Weeknd Delivers Kinky, NSFW ‘Earned It’ Video
The Weeknd gets kinky in his latest video for ‘Earned It,’ which is the first single from the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ soundtrack, due out Feb. 10. It goes without saying that the clip is NSFW and very sexy.
Directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, who also helmed the film, the clip features the Toronto crooner watching several burlesque dancers performing onstage in nothing more than a G-string and pasties. Near the end of the video, we see ‘Fifty Shades’ star Dakota Johnson wrapped in rope and hanging from the ceiling (ala FKA twigs’ ‘Pendulum’ video - we're just saying).
The kinky spectacle was filmed at the Palace Theater in Los Angeles. Sam Taylor-Johnson told E! News that the Weeknd’s sex appeal adds greatly to the movie’s subject matter. "He's just instantly seductive, and it's sort of gentle seduction that just pulls you and pulls you and pulls you in," she said.
"The film and my music is a match made in heaven," adds the Weeknd. "If you listen to my album or any of the past work I've done, it's very ‘Fifty Shades of Grey.’"
Yes, indeed. Watch the titillating visual above.
