What does Beyonce have to do with "Fifty Shades of Grey"?
That's the question everyone was asking after the 17-time Grammy Award winner posted a 15-second Instagram video teaser Saturday. The snippet promoted the trailer's Thursday premiere on NBC's "Today."
The clip features flashes of a few sexy images--a man's silhouette against a window, a finger tapping, a hand pulling up a dress--as a sexier, slower version of "Crazy in Love" seems to play in the background.

No word yet if this will be the extent of Beyonce's involvement or if she's got another trick up her sleeve.
Beyonce was first connected to the movie's soundtrack in March after the song "Haunted" (off her multiplatinum self-titled album) appeared in the "Fifty Shades of Grey" footage shown at CinemaCon.
Directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson and based on the book by E.L. James, Fifty Shades of Grey stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson. The movie's cast also features Jennifer Ehle, Luke Grimes, Marcia Gay Harden, Max Martini, Eloise Mumford, Dylan Neal, Rita Ora, Victor Rasuk and Callum Keith Rennie.
"Fifty Shades of Grey" premieres Valentine's Day 2015.
