"Love Me Like You Do" is a song recorded by English singer Ellie Goulding for the soundtrack to the film Fifty Shades of Grey (2015). The song was written by Savan Kotecha, Ilya Salmanzadeh, Tove Lo, Max Martin and Ali Payami; the latter two also produced it. Goulding was selected to sing the track. It was released on 7 January 2015 as the second single from the soundtrack. The song was also included on Goulding's third studio album, Delirium (2015).

"Love Me Like You Do" is a mid-tempo electropop power ballad, with instrumentation consisting in massive synths and crushing drums. Lyrically, similar to the film's theme, the song talks about the uncontrollable feeling of falling in love and being seduced by someone whose touch leaves her begging for more, even when it hurts. It received acclaim from music critics, who praised Goulding's soft vocals and the song for being sultry and grandiose. The song earned Goulding her first Grammy Award nomination for Best Pop Solo Performance, while the songwriters were nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media, the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song, and the Broadcast Film Critics Association Award for Best Song.

"Love Me Like You Do" was a global success, becoming Goulding's most successful single as well as becoming her first number-one in various countries, topping the charts of over 25 territories, including Australia, Austria, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. In the United Kingdom, it spent four weeks at number one on the UK Singles Chart, while holding the record for the most-streamed track in a single week in the United Kingdom at the time. In the United States, it peaked at number three on the US Billboard Hot 100 and was her first number-one on the Adult Top 40 and second on the Mainstream Top 40. Its accompanying music video, which features scenes of the film and Goulding dancing with her partner in a ballroom, became the 21st video to receive one billion views on YouTube and received a nomination at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards for Best Female Video.

Background[edit]

While seeking material for the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack, Republic Records contacted various artists, managers and music publishers to create a compilation that would appropriately represent the film's tone. "Love Me like You Do" was the result of Republic executive Tom Mackay contacting Max Martin's manager about writing a song for the film.[1] Ilya started writing the chorus, while Ali Payami and Martin came next, with Martin "tweaking" the song and Savan Kotecha and Tove Lo also contributing with lyrics. According to Kotecha, the song was originally intended for American singer Demi Lovato, however after the meeting for the soundtrack to the film, Martin and him thought it would work out on the film after watching a scene of it.[2] After that, the film director Sam Taylor-Johnson asked Ellie Goulding to sing the song. Goulding, who previously contributed songs to the soundtracks to The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and Divergent, initially thought about declining the invitation to record another song for a soundtrack to focus on her then upcoming third studio album, however after meeting the film crew and hearing the ballad she accepted.[3] She commented:

"I wasn't going to get involved in that soundtrack because I've done a lot of soundtracks and we kind of thought we've done a bit too much film stuff. So we should probably just chill and write that third album, which is what I should be focusing on. And then I met the director [Sam Taylor-Johnson] and everyone involved and I was like, 'This is a pretty cool thing to be involved in.' Then I heard the song and I was like, 'Woah, this is a pretty awesome song.' I didn't know that it was going to be this big, genuinely. I thought [maybe] it would do well."[3]

Composition and lyrics[edit]

"Love Me like You Do" was written by Max Martin, Savan Kotecha, Ilya Salmanzadeh, Ali Payami and Tove Lo, with production being done by Martin and Payami; they were also responsible for programming, drums, percussion, keys and bass. Strings were arranged by Mattias Bylund, violin was played by Mattias Johansson and cello by David Bukovinsky. Peter Carlsson was responsible for vocal editing, as well as background vocals, along with Martin, Payami, Ilya, Kotecha, Oscar Holter, Robin Fredriksson and Ludvig Soderberg. It was recorded in Los Angeles and Stockholm.[4] According to the sheet music published at Musicnotes.com by Kobalt Music Group, the song is written in the key of A major, with a moderate tempo of 96 beats per minute. Goulding's vocal range spans from the low note of Ab3 to the high note of Eb5.[5]

"Love Me like You Do" is a tender electropop power ballad,[6][7][8] with a "synth-filled, '80s-sounding" production.[9] Its instrumentation consists of massive synths and crushing drums,[7] while Goulding delivers a "soft, understated vocals".[8] In the opening seconds she sings, "You're the cure/ you're the pain/ you're the only thing I want to touch/ Never knew that it/ could mean so much/ You're the fear/ I don't care/ 'Cause I've never been so high."[10] Lyrically, "Love Me like You Do" contrasts "innocent romantic longing" and "brooding, addictive, pain-laced sensuality", which according to Plugged In's Adam R. Holz, "mirrors the story arc of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey" in both the book and the film. He went on to explain its lyrical content: "[It] tells the tale of a woman entranced and seduced by someone whose touch leaves her begging for more, even when—or perhaps especially when—it hurts."[9]

Critical reception[edit]

"Love Me like You Do" was acclaimed by music critics. Samantha Grossman of Time called the song "sultry" and dubbed it a "solid addition to the Fifty Shades soundtrack."[11] Christina Garibaldi of MTV News also called it "sultry" and "soft", adding that "we can totally picture it being played during any steamy scene."[12] Ryan Reed of Rolling Stone opined that its "results are grandiose, considering the film's sensual subject matter."[7] Jim Farber of the NY Daily News praised her "little-girl-lost voice", noting that "Goulding sounds sweet even when she's courting danger. The music, likewise, goes for a high gloss take on romance, recalling the heavily echoed beats and dense synthesizers of a Phil Collins ballad from the '80s."[13] Robbie Daw of Idolator described "Love Me like You Do" as "a sweeping power ballad that finds Goulding delivering soft, understated vocals over producer Max Martin's swelling bed of synths."[8] Lucas Villa of AXS commended Goulding for "masterfully tread[ing] between delicacy and power in her performance", calling the song "intimately magnificent".[14] Glenn Gamboa of Newsday called it "sweet, catchy, near-perfect rom-com fare".[15]

Carolyn Menyes of Music Times complimented the song for being "sweet and dreamy, like the majority of Goulding's discography", also observing that "[t]he crawling pace works well as Goulding rolls her way through the melody, all at once being enchanting and loving. Her breathy vocals, as always, complete the atmospheric sensibility of the track."[16] While reviewing the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack, Dave Holmes wrote for Esquire that the song was "[t]he closest thing to a single we've heard so far", adding that the song has "a touch of longing, a little bit of a beat" and "Goulding's voice is the sound of heavy petting."[17] Mikael Wood, writing for Los Angeles Times, said that Goulding "put across a tender sensuality [...] even as super-producer Max Martin jacks the stadium-rave beat."[18] Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic, in his soundtrack analysis, wrote that "it moves into the area of background romantic music, a vibe that's sometimes pierced by those overly familiar oldies that surely play a bigger role onscreen than they do on album."[19] In a less favourable review, Jason Lipshutz of Billboard gave the song two and a half stars out of five, complimenting Goulding's voice as "one of pop's more distinct voices" and the tune's "colossal chorus", but panning its "cliched lyrics".[20]

Accolades[edit]

"Love Me like You Do" was first nominated for a 2015 Teen Choice Award in the category "Song from a Movie or TV Show", but eventually lost to Furious 7's "See You Again", performed by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth.[21] It was also nominated for a 2015 MTV Europe Music Award for "Best Song", but lost to Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood".[22] At the 2015 BBC Music Awards, the song was nominated for "Song of the Year". It won the award of 'Best International Song" at the 2015 Los Premios 40 Principales.[23] The song is also nominated for "Favorite Song of the Year" at the 42nd People's Choice Awards[24] and received two nominations at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards: Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Song Written for Visual Media, becoming the first time Goulding was nominated.[25] The song received a Golden Globe nomination in its upcoming 73rd edition on the Best Original Song category.[26]

Regarding the dance in the video, she commented: "I am in it. That's me! I'm dancing in it!. [...] I basically have become fascinated with ballroom dancing so I was like, 'Can I please do some dancing in it?'. So they let me do that. There's a guy in it, Charlie, and there's some really sensual moments in it, and it's in a really beautiful house. I think it's one of my favorite videos."[58] The video received a nomination for Best Female Video at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards.[59] With over 1.4 billion views, the video is the 27th most viewed YouTube video of all time;[60] it surpassed one billion views on 29 February 2016, becoming the 21st video in the site's history to do so.
