There are only a few weeks before Fifty Shades Freed, the final installment of the steamy blockbuster movie franchise, opens in theaters worldwide.
To raise the hype for the upcoming return of Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) to the big screen, Universal Pictures has been releasing singles from the movie's official soundtrack. This week, Julia Michaels' anthem for bad boys called "Heaven" finally came out.
Bad Boys Bring Heaven
"They say all bad boys go to heaven but bad boys bring heaven to you" Michaels sings. "You don't realize the power they have until they leave you and you want them back."
The singer-songwriter joins a number of popular artists who contributed music to one of the most anticipated movies of the year. Liam Payne and Rita Ora, Hailee Steinfeld and BloodPop, Jessie J, Whethan and Dua Lipa, and Sia have lent their voices to the soundtrack. The album will also feature a revamped version of "Love Me Like You Do." Even Christian Grey himself, Dornan, has a song called "Maybe I'm Amazed" as a bonus track of the original movie soundtrack.
"Heaven" is a song that perfectly encapsulates the appeal of Christian Grey, a quintessential bad boy who gives both pleasure and pain, not only in his playroom but also into his relationships. However, in Fifty Shades Freed, the enigmatic businessman is no longer the same tortured soul that viewers met and fell in love with in the first movie.
In the third installment of the big screen adaptation of E.L. James' best-selling novels, Mr. Grey is Ana's husband.
"Believing they have left behind shadowy figures from their past, newlyweds Christian and Ana fully embrace an inextricable connection and shared life of luxury," the movie synopsis reads. "But just as she steps into her role as Mrs. Grey and he relaxes into an unfamiliar stability, new threats could jeopardize their happy ending before it even begins."
The movie will also star Academy Award winner Kim Basinger as Elena Lincoln, a longtime friend and business partner of Christian. Elena, referred to by Ana as Mrs. Robinson as a reference to The Graduate, brought Christian into BDSM. Arielle Kebbel, Tyler Hoechlin, Marcia Gay Harden, Eric Johnson, and Rita Ora appear in the movie.
The full Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack will be available for purchase on Feb. 8, the same day when the third and final installment of the erotic-thriller trilogy will open in theaters worldwide.
