We've already heard one of the Weeknd's contributions to the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack—the orchestral "Earned It"—but R&B's dirtiest crooner has another track for the star-studded compilation.

"Where You Belong" sounds more like the type of tune we'd expect to hear on a Weeknd solo album, but it takes his signature sound to a new level. Heavy synths blast through the atmospheric production surrounding the singer's warbling. The cut grows more complex as the song adds sizzling snares and grimy Hendrix-like guitar into the mix.

The sexy track comes from hip hop producer Mike Dean, who's worked closely with Kanye West as well Jay ZBeyonceKid Cudi and more. If Dean and the Weeknd sound this good together, we're really hoping the XO singer recruits him for his next album.

"Where You Belong" is the latest song to surface for the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack following standout cuts from Ellie Goulding ("Love Me Like You Do"), Sia ("Salted Wound"), and Skylar Grey ("I Know You").
