The Weeknd, has been a busy man lately. He Recently dropped his second song off the Fifty Shades Of Grey soundtrack, “Where You Belong.” With the Grammy’s following up shortly, scheduled to air this Sunday, February 8, 2015, Rolling Stone and Google Play hosted a Grammy week Event at the El Rey Theatre on February 5, 2015 in Los Angeles, California. The event celebrates a collaboration to bring years of iconic stories to the digital world. Not only did The Weeknd appear at the event, he also performed at the event. Take a look at some photos (Credit: Jeff Kravitz) from the event.
We’ve already heard “Earned It,” one of the new songs that the Weeknd placed on the Fifty Shades Of Grey soundtrack. And Fifty Shades Of Grey might go down in history as the most Weeknd movie of all time. “Earned It” isn’t the only time we’ll get to hear Abel Tesfaye’s voice while watching Don Johnson’s daughter engage in light BDSM. “Where You Belong” is a typically slick track with some really nice spacious synth production from the Kanye West collaborator and Houston rap veteran Mike Dean. There’s something fundamentally silly about a Weeknd song in this particular context, but those Mike Dean hi-hats and bleary guitar geysers go a long way toward selling it. Listen to “Where You Belong” below.
The Fifty Shades Of Grey movie is in theaters 2/14, and the soundtrack is out 2/10.
