The Weeknd Says “Merry Sexmas” With His New Track
When someone says “baby making music,” I automatically think of The Weeknd. Therefore, it was only fitting that he was recruited to be on the soundtrack for the 50 Shades of Grey soundtrack with the song “Earned It.” After all, I’m pretty sure every basic bitch and their mother has been counting down the days for this movie’s premiere after spending all summer by the pool casually reading about BDSM.
Unfortunately, after listening to “Earned It,” I was let down in the same way I was when I attempted to read 50 Shades of Gray. I was expecting something super sexy and raunchy, but was given something much more reminiscent of “making sweet love” than “rough f***ing.”
I still love The Weeknd, don’t get me wrong. However, I think it’s pretty clear that his individual sound and explicit lyrics had to be majorly toned down for the soundtrack of a major motion picture, and I like The Weeknd uncensored and just the way he is.
Sorry Christian Grey, but you can keep your toned down BDSM and cleaned up music for someone like my mother.
