Behind the Video: The Weeknd – ‘Earned It’

Watch out Christian Grey. The Weeknd unlocks the keys to his own playroom in the seductive video for “Earned It” off the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack. The Canadian crooner took over the Palace Theatre in downtown L.A. with Sam Taylor-Johnson, who also directed the film. Abel dons a black suit, while scantily-clad ladies strut their stuff on stage.

“I feel like the film and my music is a match made in heaven,” he said. “If you listen to my album, even the past work I’ve done, it’s very Fifty Shades of Grey.”
