Nicki Minaj Has a Song on ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ Soundtrack
Prior to the release of his multi-platinum selling album Beauty Behind the Madness in 2015, The Weeknd realized a good deal of success with "Earned It," released in December the previous year as the first single off the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack. "Earned It" has since gone five-times platinum, peaking at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100. With the film's sequel, Fifty Shades Darker, set for a February release, Nicki Minaj may receive a similar pre-album boost as she and a cast of others are featured on the soundtrack tracklist, released Wednesday (Jan. 11) via Entertainment Weekly.
"Earned It" paired perfectly with the franchise's first film, the sultry, slow build-up a showcase for the intimacy there within, and the new soundtrack is sure to follow suit. Nicki's track is a collab with Nick Jonas titled "Bom Bidi Bom," with The-Dream, John Legend and ZAYN likewise featured on the tracklist, which can be seen below. "I know many babies will be made to this soundtrack," Jonas wrote on Twitter.
The Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack will drop on Feb. 10, the same day the film is released. The newly single Minaj has yet to comment on or promote the recently released tracklist, though she's already climbing the charts with her guest verse on Ariana Grande's "Side to Side," which went up a spot to No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week.
With the soundtrack dropping in less than a month, stay tuned for the potentially steamy union of Nicki and Nick.
