There are few things that have less buzz than Beyoncé and Fifty Shades of Grey in popular culture today, so it only makes sense that the two would be combined. After teasers in trailers and plenty of hype, today (Feb. 6), just a few days before the official Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack hits stores, the new sultry remixes of Bey's hits "Crazy in Love" and "Haunted" have arrived online.

The two hits, which originally appeared on Dangerously in Love and Beyoncé (respectively), have been rendered nearly unrecognizable in the sexy, slow remixes.

"Crazy in Love" opens up with an ominous piano, which tantalizes your earbuds until Beyoncé's voice kicks in. The tone of her voice is turned down a few steps from the 2004 original and extra distortion and texture was adding, giving slow moving, sexy vibes to the single.

Add in some major orchestral bursts at the end with a full group of strings and a bombastic drum, and you have a chaotic, sexy new version of an already chaotic and sexy Beyoncé classic.

As for "Haunted," the song didn't need a tempo adjustment or a heavy remix to be a tantalizing track. Instead, like "Crazy In Love," Beyoncé's vocals get turned down and there are added elements of piano and spacey music effects, giving the song an added atmospheric vibe.

Beyoncé's new remixes come from the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack, which is due to be released on Feb. 10. They join contributions from The Weeknd, Skylar Grey, Sia and more.
