Jessie Ware – “Meet Me In The Middle”

The soundtrack to the new megabudget Skinemax bomb Fifty Shades Of Grey is out today, and it commands considerably more starpower than the movie itself. We’ve already heard two new song from the Weeknd, “Earned It” and “Where You Belong,” as well as a new Sia joint and a Beyoncé remix. And now the great British soul singer Jessie Ware has also chipped in with the slow, sweltering “Meet Me In The Middle.” The song veers away from Ware’s usual tender synth-soul and toward something that could be described as “studio blues-rock.” And given how the movie seems to be striving to evoke ’80s erotic thrillers like 9 1/2 Weeks, maybe that’s appropriate, since goofy songs like that always ended up in those movies. Listen to “Meet Me In The Middle” below.

The Fifty Shades Of Grey soundtrack is out now on Universal/Republic.
