The Weeknd – Earned It (Fifty Shades of Grey – Movie) – Nominee for Best Achievement in music written for motion pictures (Original song) –
This was one of my favorite songs from 2015. I feel that this young man, reminds us of Prince intertwined with Maxwell. When he sings, he truly feels for the woman he is so madly in love with. Listen to the lyrics that worships and adorns a woman. As a woman myself, I appreciate a man who loves his woman and has discovered ways to poetically memorize her and that is exactly what he does with this song. And it has earned him an Oscar nominations, for best achievement in music written for potion pictures, Fifty Shades of Grey. p.s. the video is very risqué, viewers discretion.
