In the steamy too-hot-for-morning-television trailer of Fifty Shades of Grey, Beyoncé somehow manages to make the relationship between Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey even steamier.
How you ask? Well, by stripping down her 2003 hit, “Crazy In Love.”
As Bey teased earlier this week, gone are the track’s booty poppin’ beats. Instead, this exclusive version for the film is just a shell of its former self where she draws out every word, turning it into a sexy lounge number that has Christian Grey (played by Jamie Dornan) making it clear that he’s not that into romance. Oh, we know you’re not Mr. Grey.
Don’t believe the hype over the trailer’s NSFW nature? Today premiered the clip, but had to play a shorter, censored version for their viewers.
But you can watch the full two-minute trailer in all its glory, originally via Today but now on YouTube, below.
As for Bey, she could teach a thing or two to the mousy Ms. Steele about power. In a new photo, Queen B is seen recreating the iconic Rosie the Riveter”We Can Do It!” poster. Who run the world, Christian Grey? Yep, that’s right, girls.
Fifty Shades of Grey hits theaters just in time for Valentine’s Day: Feb. 13, 2015.
