*No doubt, Beyonce knows a great opportunity when she sees one, and now she may be tempting us with the results. Accustomed to her own reputation for turning folks on, the “Partition,” singer posted a teaser for the eagerly anticipated erotic drama “Fifty Shades of Grey” on her Instagram account over the weekend. So the question is, is it a done deal that Beyonce music will be on the soundtrack?
According to the L.A. Times, “Fifty Shades of Grey,” has been described as “mommy porn” and is adapted from E.L. James’ wildly popular 2011 novel, which tells the story of virginal college student Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), the dashing, domineering billionaire who takes an interest in her.
On the 15-second clip
posted on Instagram, fans need strain no longer than a second before they realize that the raspy-voiced, slow and sexy version of the 2003 megahit, “Crazy In Love,” is being voiced by none other than its creator, Beyonce. Add to that, flashes of provocative imagery: a sharp-suited silhouette, a finger tapping, a hand pulling up a dress, a key unlocking a door. And its a pretty safe bet that Bey is telling us her music will definitely be in the film…Either that or she’s feeling really charitable about marketing a film she may have no vested interest in.
The teaser promises a full trailer to be released Thursday.
