ALBUM REVIEW: Fifty Shades Freed Soundtrack


For the final film in the trilogy “Fifty Shades Freed” reflects on Christian and Anastasia’s relationship, questions their future together and answers all your burning questions while delivering a lot of sex, action and mystery. This movie is a lot less moodier than its predecessors and that is reflective in the accompanying soundtrack. It is lead by pop heavy tracks that will have you feeling all giddy and in love even if you aren’t. Lead Single “For You” by Rita Ora and Liam Payne is the movies ultimate anthem and will have you smiling ear to ear as soon as that chorus begins. Hailee Steinfeld also has the same affect with the boppy “Capital Letters” while they also bring back Ellie Goulding’s “Love Me Like You Do” for a very appropiate moment in the film. Miike Snow delivers the synth vibes on “Change Your Mind” that will have you swaying but its Sabrina Claudio who steals the soundtrack for me. “Cross Your Mind” is a epic and playful pop song that will have you dancing and singing along instantly. “Do I ever, do I ever cross your mind? When you’re kissing her, touching her, staring in her eyes. Tell me, do I ever, do I ever cross your mind? When you run your hands through her hair like you did to mine”. Newcomer Julia Michaels snags two tracks on this soundtrack. “Are You” is an offbeat banger that delivers you strong vocals but then she delivers you the moody and perfect “Heaven” which showcases a really cool contrast. The other half of the soundtrack is a bit moodier and sexier which will all expected and all so low key wanted. “Sacrifice” (Black Atlass + Jessie Reyez), “High” (Whethan & Dua Lipa), “The Wolf” (The Spencer Lee Band) and “Never Tear Us Apart” (Bishop Briggs) deliver those steamy and passionate moments that will ignite something inside of you. It’s a very strong soundtrack that has a lot of different layers and emotions which perfectly represents the movie franchise. I may even go as far as saying that this is the strongest soundtrack of the three…
