The Weeknd, real name Abel Tesfaye, released his latest album, ‘Kiss Land’, in 2013. He shared two previously unheard songs, ‘King Of The Fall’ and ‘Often’, in July 2014.

Fifty Shades of Grey is an adaptation of EL James’s bestselling erotic novel, featuring Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey, the kinky businessman who seduces Dakota Johnson’s demure college student, Anastasia Steele.

Directed by Nowhere Boy‘s Sam Taylor Wood, the film is due to open in cinemas on Valentine’s Day next year. Its supporting cast includes Luke Grimes, Marcia Gay Harden, Jennifer Ehle and pop singer Rita Ora, who is also providing a song for a soundtrack. The trailer for the film features a new version of Beyoncé’s ‘Crazy in Love’.

Last year, The Weeknd teamed up with US brand ONE Condoms to produce a range of official The Weeknd contraceptives featuring tour logos and artwork from his album. They were distributed at various venues on his autumn tour.
