The Weeknd’s quickly growing catalog has been filled with his distinctive genre-bending, often melancholy, music. On his new song “Earned It,” from the soundtrack of Fifty Shades of Grey, he pivots to a straight-forward Soul offering, and he shines. He puts down the vocal effects and moody chords and slips into the pocket of a sultry love song. Check out the lyric video.
