Beyonce Kinks Up ‘Crazy in Love’ for ’50 Shades of Grey’ Trailer

'50 Shades of Grey' movie trailer Beyonce "Crazy in Love"

Seeing that the 50 Shades of Grey franchise has already sold millions of books, it didn’t seem like the film adaptation needed any more hype, but then the producers went and got Beyoncé involved, charging the anticipation up to nuclear levels. A few days ago, Bey put up a short teaser for the trailer on Instagram (yes, that’s how previews are done now) with a brief clip of a steamy, slowed-down version of her debut solo single, the 2003 hit “Crazy in Love.” Now, we have a full trailer and a much longer excerpt of the reworked song, which features breathier vocals and a bit of menace, a perfect fit for this kink-filled erotic flick. There’s no word on when this single will be out, but we’ll assume that it’ll be before the movie’s Valentine’s Day 2015 release date. Check it out in the safe-for-work trailer above.
