Julia Michaels finds her own Christian Grey in the music video for "Heaven," a track from the original soundtrack of Fifty Shades Freed.

Bad Boys Bring Heaven

True to the seductive lyrics, the video directed by Sophie Muller also features a couple of tormented and shirtless boys sneaking ice cream from the refrigerator while Michaels, dressed in a crisp suit, lounges on the kitchen countertop.

The young singer first previewed the song, an ode to bad boys, last month.

Michaels is only one of the many artists who have contributed music to the Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack. Last week, former One Direction member Liam Payne and singer/actress Rita Ora released their own lavish music video for the song "For You."

Ora also appears in the steamy movie trilogy as Mia Grey, Christian Grey's (Jamie Dornan) sister.

The soundtrack also features songs performed by Sia, Hailee Steinfeld, Jessie J, Dua Lipa, and Ellie Goulding. Even Dornan, who was the vocalist of the band Sons of Jim, performed a single called "Maybe I'm Amazed."

In an interview, Dornan talked about his song and how it will play a role in the upcoming movie.

"I do sing — in the script he sings a Paul McCartney song. I sang it on the day," he told ITV's Lorraine. "Sarah MacLachlan, the Canadian singer, we were shooting in her house — and she did a rendition of her songs before and it was total reverie and everyone was spellbound. Then she finished and everyone was crying and then it was like, 'Jamie we're ready for you now!' Trying to follow that!"

He added that there was initially a plan to add a longer version of the song on the album.

Meanwhile, last week, Universal Studios released Bishop Briggs' contribution to the soundtrack. Called "Never Tear Us Apart," the track is an ode to the chaotic relationship between Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and Christian Grey and the many people who are trying to keep them away from each other.

The Final Installment

Fifty Shades Freed, the final installment to the steamy romance trilogy adapted from the novels of E.L. James, already had its premiere in Paris this week.

The movie is expected to earn around $33 million during its first weekend at the box office in the United States. In comparison, Fifty Shades of Grey opened with $85.2 million in 2015 while Fifty Shades Darker recorded a $46.6 million gross. The movie, however, will see an uptick by next week right around Valentine's Day.
