If you ask me, it sounds like Beyonce is cooking up something new. Recently Queen Bey posted a video to her official Instagram account letting everyone know that the official movie trailer for the highly anticipated film Fifty Shades of Grey is coming this Thursday. However, what has everyone talking is the music that plays in the background of the 15 second clip. With Beyonce posting the video, we can only hope that she’ll appear of the films soundtrack. If you listen clearly it sounds like a slowed down version of “Crazy In Love”, and that song is definitely fitting for the film.

Recently it was announced that Deborah Cox will be the voice singing Whitney Houston’s music in the new Lifetime biopic, which is expected to premier next year.

TMZ was able to get a hold of a recording of what sounds like Deborah Cox’s version of “I Will Always Love You”. It hasn’t been confirmed if this is actually the version to be used in the film, but if so having Deborah sing the music for the film may have not been a bad idea after all.
