Update: The Sam Taylor-Johnson-directed visuals for The Weeknd's Earned It promo single have been added.

50 Shades of Grey, the smash book that's being made into a movie, is all about the darker, often painful side of love and sex. In other words, it's the film version of a Weeknd song, and sure enough Mr. XO himself drops off his contribution to the movie's soundtrack, Earned It, a typically hazy an sultry affair with just a hint of menace. Enjoy Earned It now, then try to pretend to enjoy 50 Shades of Grey when your girlfriend drags you to it this coming Valentine's Day.
