Ahead of the February release of Fifty Shades Feed, Liam Payne and Rita Ora have unleashed "For You," their brand-new collaboration off the soundtrack to the highly-anticipated film, and it hears this pop duo entranced in unexpected love.
Released on Friday (January 5), the four-minute track is an uptempo dance ode to surprising love with production from Peter Karlsson, Watt & Ali Payami. In a fitting progression, “For You” begins with Rita leading the way until a whirlwind hook from both of the pop stars. "Been waiting for a lifetime for you/ Been breaking for a lifetime for you/ Wasn't looking for love 'till I found you," the duo collectively sing during the second chorus. Sure, the cut isn’t entirely inventive, but it's cinematic and dance attributes fit perfectly into the current Top 40 landscape. Plus, considering that Ora has yet to experience commercial success in America with her string of singles like "I Will Never Let You Down," "Radioactive" and the Ed Sheeran-penned "Your Song," we're gunning for her to score gold with "For You."
As history would remind us, cuts from the Fifty Shades franchise have gone on to score major traction and even snag nominations for some pretty important accolades in both the realms of music and film. Fingers crossed that "For You" can follow suit. From the looks of Rita's recent social media post about the track, it seems like an accompanying music video for the collab could also be on its way.
Even though the track list to the soundtrack to the third and final chapter of the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy hasn't been released, you can probably expect major star power. After all, the last installment included the likes of Nicki Minaj, Nick Jonas, The-Dream, John Legend, Sia, Tove Lo, Halsey and more.
