Beyonce Shares Fifty Shades of Grey Teaser, Featuring Her Own Voice (VIDEO)
Are you ready for Fifty Shades of Bey?
Last night (Saturday, July 19), Beyoncé posted a video on Instagram, teasing the upcoming trailer for the first Fifty Shades of Grey film.
As the video states, "This Thursday, the worldwide phenomenon comes to life." It ends with Beyoncé's breathy "uh oh uh oh uh ohhhh." So did she record a new song for the movie's soundtrack … or are they just featuring a new version of "Crazy in Love," since the uh-ohs sounded kind of like a sexy slowed-down version of that song? It’s not like she hasn’t done something like that before. HuffingtonPost said a stripped down version of her song "Haunted" was used to underscore a Fifty Shades teaser that was screened for theater owners and press back in March.
No one loves a good tease more than Queen Bey herself, so she didn't elaborate on her involvement, she just posted the video below with the hashtag "#fiftyshades”:
The clip doesn't actually show the faces of the main characters — Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) or Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) — but we catch glimpses of their bodies.
The full trailer is coming out this Thursday, July 24, so that’s presumably when we’ll get more action.
There are a lot of Fifty Shades lovers and haters out there, so what do you think — are you excited to see the full trailer, and learn more about Beyoncé’s involvement (whatever it is) or do you think less of Beyoncé for getting in bed with this franchise?
