Both the first trailer to the movie Fifty Shades of Grey, and the song by Ellie Goulding, Love Me Like You Do, deemed as the official theme song of the movie, have been breaking records. Fans of the erotic trilogy cannot seem to get enough of anything at all related to the hit series of books, which could be very good news for how well the flick does at the box office, opening just in time for Valentine’s Day audiences.
With the romantic song Love Me Like You Do now having been heard by well over 2 million people, English singer Ellie Goulding has a smash on her hands. It could be that the other songs on the soundtrack will also benefit with increased sales, once the album becomes available online and in stores.
