Almost as highly anticipated as the sexy scenes in the Fifty Shades of Grey film franchise are the movie’s big soundtracks. For the third and final instalment in the BDSM-positive trilogy, two huge singles have already dropped, including Liam Payne and Rita Ora’s “For You” and Hailee Steinfeld’s “Capital Letters.”
Possibly signaling the Grey’s newfound approach to a more traditional love story in the third film, Steinfeld’s “Capital Letters” is a feel good single about for better or for worse, with the focus on the better. For her romantic pop track, Steinfeld teamed up with producer BloodPop. Best known for his work with Justin Bieber, BloodPop brings his pop sensibilities to the new single, which has a much more carefree approach than we’re used to hearing from the soundtrack of sultry.
Now Steinfeld has released a music video for her latest single, with the Oscar-nominated actor showing off why she too could have filled the role of Mrs. Grey.
Focusing on the upcoming film’s emphasis on romance (as opposed to the red room), Steinfeld runs down the beach in a haute couture dress (as one does), gets pampered in her hotel room in Paris, models lingerie, and runs through the lobby of the chateau all while being joined by a tall, dark and handsome male lead. Is the filter-heavy video or the song about not realizing your potential until a handsome guy loves you very groundbreaking? No, but Steinfeld’s stunning gaze into the camera provides three minutes of escapism as the feel good track plays in the background. Like the Fifty Shades of Grey series, just don’t think too deeply about any of it.
Fifty Shades Freed hits theatres on February 9, with the soundtrack dropping the same day.
