BEYONCE AND FSOG “CRAZY IN LOVE”
Since the FSOG trailer came out yesterday I have to admit the song has stayed in my head. I even posted the original music video of it just to enjoy it. Crazy in Love and Fifty Shades of Grey are not what you would think of as a perfect fit. BUT IT WORKS. Here is how it all came about:
The genius idea came from Boots, the producer behind much of Beyoncé’s latest album. He told Complex he “jumped at the opportunity” to score the Fifty Shades trailer, though he didn’t know anything about the book before watching the clip. “I had no idea that it was this phenomenon,” he said.
He worked with the film’s producers to create a score, which slowly builds piano and rhythm to reach a, well, climax, of Beyoncé’s vocals. And Boots can’t say enough about Queen Bey’s addition to the trailer. “She just absolutely killed it. The acapellas that she did gives me chills.”
Same! And though he couldn’t give any more details about the soundtrack, it’s safe to say that everyone hopes there’s even more Beyoncé involved. It could only do the movie (and her) a world of good.
