The Weeknd released "Earned It" a few weeks ago in anticipation of the release of 50 Shades of Grey, and after being an instant success, Abel Tesfaye apparently feels that fans have "earned" a sexy sneak peek at the video for the film's ending song.

In a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the music video for the seductive song, Fifty Shades of Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson says that Tesfaye's sexiness is just what the movie needed.

"He's just instantly seductive, and it's sort of gentle seduction that just pulls you and pulls you and pulls you in," she says.

Filming at the Palace Theater in Los Angeles, the music video (so far) shows women dancing in Red Room-appropriate ensembles and showing a lot of leg, so you know that we shall be getting a sweet treat when the full video premieres later this week! From what we can tell so far from the trailers and this video, Fifty Shades of Grey will definitely be a naughty experience.

"The film and my music is a match made in Heaven," Tesfaye adds. "If you listen to my album or any of the past work I've done, it's very Fifty Shades of Grey."

The sneak peek video also splices in the movie's raunchiest scenes, which has us more eager than ever to see what's to come from our most favorite guilty pleasure!

Watch the video above and stay tuned for the full-length debut later this week!
