From the Fifty Shades Freed Movie Soundtrack
Rita Ora and Liam Payne release For You
Rita Ora and One Direction member Liam Payne teamed up to record “For You” for the movie soundtrack for Fifty Shades Freed, the final installment in the Fifty Shades of Grey films. The pop artists released the song to music retailers at midnight Thursday and music fans were quick to jump on the listening bandwagon.
The track starts off with a definitive movie score type feel before it quickly tapers off into a snappy, breathy, pop vocal delivered by Ora. Payne comes in just past the one-quarter mark and easily matches Ora’s vocals with a smooth opening offering of his own. But it’s the song’s middle and end choruses where the duo truly shine, unleashing breathtaking harmonies and stunning, though mostly background, vocal ranges.
Written by Andrew Watt, Ali Tamposi, and Ali Payami but performed by Ora and Payne, “For You” is an easy-listening pop song that no doubt will be on repeat for Payne, Ora, and Fifty Shades fans for days. It’s a great song, with a great hook, and no joke, you’ll (probably) be singing it before you realize you’re actually doing it.
Or maybe that’s just me?
