    First Look: The Weeknd Promises A NSFW Steamy Video For "Earned It"

    "The film and my music is a match made in heaven."

    In what is, perhaps, the most perfect pairing ever, Abel Tesfaye, aka The Weeknd, was tagged to pen two songs for the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack. Released just before Christmas, his “Earned It” is slow, seductive, and tearing its way up the charts.

    This week the song gets its video, and we have an exclusive sneak peek of what promises to be a steamy, NSFW affair.

    The video, like the movie, is directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, who — best we can tell — set the perfect sexy mood. The Weeknd's voice, she says in the teaser, is "instantly seductive" and "couldn't be more perfect" for Fifty Shades.

    The Weeknd agrees. “The film and my music is a match made in heaven," he says in the below clip. "If you listen to my album or any of the past work I’ve done, it’s very Fifty Shades of Grey."

    In this quick peek of the "Earned It" video we see The Weeknd performing in front of scantily clad women in Los Angeles' Palace Theater, or taking a break to watch them walk seductively across the stage. Things get hot and heavy.
