FIFTY SHADES OF GREY SOUNDTRACK TAKING OVER THE CHARTS
Ellie Goulding's "Love Me Like You Do" has become the fastest-selling single of the year. Even though the film has been banned in India, Indian fans can still enjoy the OST album of the first film of the trilogy. The official soundtrack for the film has become the fastest-selling multi-act soundtrack in a decade. Featuring original music by Beyoncé, Sia, The Weeknd, and Ellie Goulding, the album, released by the Universal Music Group, sold more than 428,000 units in its first two weeks, according to Nielsen Music, and this week sends two hit singles to the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 (Goulding’s “Love Me Like You Do,” No. 3; and The Weeknd’s “Earned It,” No. 9).
While both the book as well as the movie have been cast in a less than favorable light by critics, the soundtrack has been incredibly well received as a success both artistically as well as commercially. The album has been a roaring success internationally as well as in India! It’s been held the #1 position now for over a week and has been in the Top 3 on the iTunes overall Albums chart.
The album is available on physical as well as digital formats in India under Universal Music Group.
