SINGLE REVIEW: Liam Payne and Rita Ora’s Fifty Shades Freed Single ‘For You’

When it was announced that former One Direction heartthrob Liam Payne would be teaming up with songstress Rita Ora for his third official solo single. We were extremely excited and intrigued to hear the track that is taken from the new Fifty Shades movie Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack.

The sexy single ‘For You’ has exceeded listener expectations. We have always loved Payne’s voice and as a solo star he has found his true sound. We are loving it! The RnB vibes he’s creating are fresh and he is really making a name for himself as a solo superstar.

With his collaboration with hitmaker Rita Ora, the 24-year-old has cemented his place as a chart star. His solo venture is blossoming and 2018 will undoubtedly be a year to watch Payne closely. The track is super sexy, with a sensational bass and beat that make it a real standout. It’s already a contender for best single of 2018.

It has been lifted off the new Fifty Shades movie soundtrack for Fifty Shades Freed and the slow jam almost ballad-like single is a difference in musical direction for Payne. His vocals hold up and the harmonies with Ora are pretty special. They really do sound beautiful together and the insanely catchy chorus elevates ‘For You’ to a whole new level.

2018 is shaping up to be an exciting year for music and with this sublime collaboration between Liam Payne and Rita Ora we have already been treated to a slice of what is to come.

RATING: 4.5/5

For You‘ is out now with the official music video set to premiere on January 16th.
