The release of the hotly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie may be 10 days away (not like we're counting), but fans of the hit novel series can get a little taste of what's in store via the film's soundtrack. Following the release of new songs from The Weeknd, Ellie Goulding and Beyoncé, today (Feb 3), a new song from the movie has been released: Skylar Grey's emotional "I Know You."
Following the example of The Weeknd and Goulding, Grey plays up the emotion in "I Know You," a mid-tempo piano ballad with a pulsing beat, yearning lyrics and dripping, high vocals from the "Coming Home" singer.
"I Know You" starts with a sweeping, soft string of piano chords before Grey blasts above her instrument of choice. With a soothing melody, she takes the perspective of a hesitant lover, recalling the steamy story between Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey.
"I have been patient, but slowly I'm losing faith / So, please / I know you, baby / I know you, baby," Grey sings in the chorus, with a small, whispered voice that's full of raw emotion and vulnerability. Add in some strings, and you have an emotional pull of the strings perfectly fitting for Fifty Shades of Grey.
