"Crazy in Love" is the debut single by R&B singer-songwriter Beyoncé Knowles, featuring rapper and now-husband Jay-Z. Producer Rich Harrison, Knowles and Jay-Z wrote the song for Knowles' debut solo album, Dangerously in Love. "Crazy in Love" is an R&B love song which incorporates elements of 1970s-style funk, soul and dance-pop genres. The track features a sample from The Chi-Lites' 1970 song "Are You My Woman (Tell Me So)", used as the song's horn hook. The lyrics reference a romantic obsession that causes the protagonist to act out of character.

Columbia Records released "Crazy in Love" on May 20, 2003, as the album's lead single. Critics praised the horn sample, the guest appearance of Jay-Z, and the assertiveness with which Knowles sings the lyrics. "Crazy in Love" ranks 118th on Rolling Stone's 2010 list of the 500 greatest songs of all time. VH1 placed the song at number one on its 100 Greatest Songs of the 2000s list. At the 46th Grammy Awards, it won Grammys for Best R&B Song and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration. "Crazy in Love" was Knowles' first number one single as a solo artist in the United States, peaking on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for eight consecutive weeks. It also topped UK Singles Chart, and reached the top ten on the singles charts in Australia, Canada, Denmark, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden as well as Switzerland and achieved multi-platinum certifications in most of these countries.

The song's accompanying music video features Knowles in various dance sequences. It won three awards at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards, and its director, Jake Nava, won the Music Video Production Association award for Best R&B Video in 2004. Since 2003, "Crazy in Love" has been a staple in Knowles' live performances and concert tours. The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) recognized "Crazy in Love" as one of the most performed songs of 2004 at the ASCAP Pop Music Awards. The song has been covered by David Byrne and numerous others, and it has been used in various television shows and other media.

Development and production

Jay-Z, who is a featured artist on "Crazy in Love", also co-wrote the song.

In 2002, Knowles had already recorded several songs which would appear on Dangerously in Love. Columbia Records planned to release the album in October 2002; however the release was postponed several times to capitalize on the success of American rapper Nelly's single "Dilemma", which features Destiny's Child singer Kelly Rowland.[1] These delays allowed Knowles to record more songs for the album.[2]

Before meeting Knowles, Rich Harrison, who wrote "Crazy in Love", had recorded a demo of the song, which was originally titled "Crazy Right Now".[3] Before he met Knowles, Harrison sampled the hook was sampled from the 1970 song "Are You My Woman? (Tell Me So)",[3][4] originally written by the Chicago-based vocal group, The Chi-Lites's falsetto frontman, Eugene Record.[2] Harrison instantaneously knew that he had something good, and that he had to wait for the right artist to record the song.[3] He was surprised and overwhelmed when Knowles called him: "[...] I had it in the chamber, I had not really shopped it much, because sometimes you do not want to come out of the bag before it's right. People do not really get it and you will leave them with a foul taste in their mouth. So it was just something that I held on to until I got the call from B[eyoncé]."[3]

Knowles, who knew Keri Hilson, who had written several songs for Destiny's Child, was introduced to Harrison three months before the song was recorded.[5] In the studio, Harrison played the demo for Knowles. After listening to the sample, Knowles had doubts as it seemed "...too retro" and according to her, "...no one used horn riffs in the 21st century."[2] Nevertheless, she loved the sample and she asked Harrison to write the song, giving him two hours. The theme came from Knowles speaking of being conscious of her appearance. She kept saying "I'm looking crazy right now" and Harrison sang that back to her.[5] Harriso wrote the verses and the hook, leaving the bridge for Knowles.[3] American rapper Jay-Z became involved late in the song's production.[2] Around three in the morning, he came to the studio and recorded a rap verse, which he thought up in about ten minutes but did not write down.[3][6]

Music structure and lyrics

According to the sheet music published at Musicnotes.com by Alfred Music Publishing, "Crazy in Love" is a R&B-love song, composed in the key of F Major.[7][11] It incorporates 1970s-style funk music,[8] and contains influences of soul music [14] as well as dance-pop music.[15] As commented by Robert Webb of The Independent, the old soul influences in the song seem to have been derived from the horn hook,[2] which samples the 1970 song "Are You My Woman? (Tell Me So)".[3] Having a go-go vibe,[2] "Crazy in Love" is built on a hip hop beat.[16] Knowles told The Sunday Herald that the beat is "...so hard that it makes your heart hurt."[17] The song's tempo is a moderate 100 beats per minute, in common time.[7] Knowles' vocal range spans around one and a half octaves in the song, from the low note of A3 to the high note of F5.[7] "Crazy in Love" uses two major chords, B♭ and G, a minor third apart.[7] One of the main vocal riffs uses the traditional cowbell rhythm often found in samba music.[9][18] Lisa Verrico of The Times magazine, wrote that "Crazy in Love" makes use of big drums and bits of brass.[19]

According to Natalie Nichols of Los Angeles Times, the lyrics of "Crazy in Love" reference a state of romantic obsession.[15] Knowles said that the song talks "...about how, when you are falling in love, you do things that are out of character and you do not really care because you are just open."[20] Anthony DeCurtis of Rolling Stone wrote that "Crazy in Love" has "...such a cauldron of energy", that Knowles sounds "...loose and sexy", gripped by emotions she "...can neither understand nor control".[10] The lyrics are composed in the traditional verse-chorus form. Jay-Z opens the song with a brief spoken verse-rap, containing the lyrics: "Yes! So crazy right now. Most incredibly, it's your girl, B. It's your boy, Young. You ready?"[7] After Knowles delivers the "uh-oh, uh-oh" catchphrase, Jay-Z continues the monologue.[13] Knowles begins the first verse, followed with the whistle-backed chorus.[19] She repeats the "uh-oh, uh-oh" phrase, leading to the second verse. The chorus follows, giving way to the second verse-rap which contains the lyrics: "Jay Z in the range, crazy and deranged [...] I been inhaling the chain smokers, how you think I got the name 'Hova', I been real and the game's over [...]".[11] The song continues to the bridge, singing: "I'm not myself, lately I'm foolish, I don't do this, / I've been playing myself, baby, I don't care / 'Cuz your love's got the best of me, / And baby, you're making a fool of me, / You got me sprung and I don't care who sees [...]".[21] She then sings the chorus again and the song fades out with the horns.[7]

Release and remixes

"Crazy in Love" was released to radio in the United States on May 18, 2003 under formats including Rhythmic,[22] Top 40,[23] and Urban radios.[24] The single was released first as a digital download to iTunes Stores in the United Kingdom[25] and in the United States on May 20, 2003.[26] The song was released as a CD single in Ireland[27] and Switzerland[28] on June 30, 2003 and as a digital EP in Germany on the same date.[29] "Crazy in Love" was released as a maxi single in Germany on June 30, 2003[30] and in Australia on July 15, 2003 along with the song's accompanying music video, exclusive to Australia.[31] The song was issued on DVD and CD single in the United Kingdom on June 30, 2003.[32][33] "Crazy in Love" was released as a digital EP in several European countries, including Austria,[34] Belgium,[35] Denmark,[36] Finland,[37] Italy,[38] the Netherlands,[39] Norway,[40] and Sweden on July 8, 2003.[41] This digital EP was also available in Canada[42] and Ireland on July 8, 2003.[43] On July 22, 2003, two remixes - one from Rockwilder and the other from Adam 12 - was serviced in the United States.[44][45]

"Crazy in Love" has various remixes, including the Rockwilder remix, Maurice's "Nu Soul remix", and Juniors World remix. These versions appeared on the single releases of "Crazy in Love" under an alternative spelling, "Krazy in Luv".[46] The Rockwilder remix slows down the beat and makes the song deeper and funkier with chopped up horn samples and sparkling synth textures.[31] Maurice's "Nu Soul Remix" speeds up the beat, taking it from hip-hop to house territory.[31] A version of the song included on Asian releases of Dangerously in Love features a rap in Mandarin Chinese performed by American-Taiwanese singer Vanness Wu, instead of Jay-Z's performance.[47]

Critical reception

"Crazy in Love" was lauded by reviewers, who complimented the horn lines and the guest appearance of Jay-Z in the song. Many called it the "Summer Anthem of 2003".[48] Tim Sendra of Allmusic described the song as a "...stunning pop masterpiece",[31] while Stephen Thomas Erlewine of the same website called it "...deliriously catchy".[49] Darryl Sterdan of Jam! noted the song is "...instantly addictive horn lines".[12] Anthony DeCurtis of Rolling Stone wrote: "'Crazy in Love' ... roars out of the speakers on the strength of a propulsive horn sample and the charged presence of her pal, Jay-Z."[10] Marc Anthony Neal of PopMatters called the "uh-oh, uh-oh" phrase "...catchy".[11] MTV News considered the song the "proudest moment" of the album.[50] Blender called "Crazy in Love" an "itchy [and] eager-to-please" track.[51] Allison Stewart of The Washington Post called the song the best one on the album and complimented its horns, harmonies, samples and the rap verse of Jay-Z.[14] This is echoed by Kelefa Sanneh of The New York Times who said the song is the best one on the album thanks to its simplicity, irresistible combination of triumphant horns and a wicked hip-hop beat.[16] She further added that "her vocals - as deft and accurate as ever - convey none of the giddy rush that the lyrics describe."[16]

Rob Fitzpatrick of NME called "Crazy in Love": "...head-nodding [and] body-rocking funk-soul genius" and wrote that the track is "...is a 100 per cent, stone-cold, dead-cert classic." He complimented Knowles' vocals, calling her "genuinely, hip-grindingly fruity".[52] Los Angeles Times writer Natalie Nichols said that "...sexy dance tunes as the vintage funk-flavored" "Crazy in Love" made Dangerously in Love a great album.[15] Yancey Strickler of Flak Magazine wrote: "Featuring a stunning horn bombast, it has the potential of a Lebron breakaway with Jay-Z's typically stellar guest verse and Beyoncé's cocked-hip, sassy delivery."[53] Sal Cinquemani of Slant Magazine said the lyrical arrangement, the music structure and the guest vocals by Jay-Z all contributed in making "Crazy in Love" a wonderful resume for Knowles.[8] Neil Drumming of Entertainment Weekly wrote that the song has a "...fresh sound".[13] Spence D. of IGN Music wrote that Knowles rides the "...infectious rhythm" with grace and mid-range seductively. He also added: "...as can be expected, the track bumps when Jay drops his distinctive uptown flavor. While other rap-meet-R&B tracks often fall flat, this one works well as Beyoncé and Jay's verbals play nicely against one another."[18] Lisa Verrico of The Times magazine wrote that Jay-Z performed a "...decent rap", however, "Beyoncé and the beats save the day." and that "Crazy in Love" was a departure for Knowles from Destiny's Child.[19]

Chart performance

"Crazy in Love" was a commercial success in the United States. Although it was not yet released to retail stores, the single gained much attention and reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100, the official US singles chart, based on heavy rotation alone.[74] The same week it reached number one, Dangerously in Love debuted on the Billboard 200 at number one. Substantial airplay, and later in retail, gains of "Crazy in Love" allowed it to dominate the chart,[75] spending eight consecutive weeks at number one on the Hot 100,[76] making it Knowles' first number one single in her solo career. According to Nielsen SoundScan, "Crazy in Love" was the most downloaded song in the United States for four consecutive weeks in July 2003.[77] "Crazy in Love spent twenty-seven weeks on the Hot 100, spending fifteen weeks in the top ten, and twenty-six weeks in the top fifty.

In the United Kingdom, Knowles became the third female artist to have a number one single and a number one album simultaneously,[82] following Mariah Carey in 1994 and Kylie Minogue in 2001. Including her career with Destiny's Child, "Crazy in Love" became Knowles' third number one single in the UK and was the only song to top the charts the United Kingdom and the United States in 2003.[83] The single spent three weeks at number one in the UK[84] and fifteen weeks in the top 100.[85] "Crazy in Love" reached number one on the Irish Singles Chart, where it spent eighteen weeks.[86] In Australia, "Crazy in Love" peaked at number two on the ARIA Singles Chart[87] and was certified platinum by the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) with sales of over 70,000 units.[88] It also peaked at number two on the New Zealand Singles Chart,[87] and was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of New Zealand (RIANZ).[89] "Crazy in Love" reached top ten positions in some European singles charts.[87] It reached the top ten in Austria, the Belgian territories of Flanders and Wallonia, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland.[87]

Music video

The music video of "Crazy in Love", released in May 2003, was directed by Jake Nava.[90] In MTV Making of the Video 2003 documenary, Knowles described the video's conception: "[The video] celebrates the evolution of a woman. It is about a girl who is at the point of a relationship. She realises that she is in love, she is doing stuff she would not normally do but she does not care. It does not matter she is just crazy in love."[91] In the video, Knowles performs in various dance sequences, beginning with Knowles wearing a tank top, short shorts, and red high-heels. She performs an elaborate solo dance on a riser. The scene shifts to a gold set with a mock photo shoot, before moving into a scene with dancers detailing Knowles and dancing against a wall while wearing caps and full length pants. Jay-Z appears and ignites a line of petrol leading to a car which explodes in flames. Jay-Z performs his rap in front of the burning car, and Beyoncé dances beside him, wearing an exotic silk print over a fur coat, before kicking the valve off a fire hydrant. She continues to dance while the water is flying everywhere. The video ends with Knowles and her dancers wearing vibrant dresses in front of a large fan. Their outfits contrast with the neutral colors of the background, the video. Carmit Bachar, a former Pussycat Dolls singer, is one of the dancers.

The music video was acclaimed by critics and won several awards. Cynthia Fuchs, writing for PopMatters commented that the photo shoot scene uses the routine used by Jennifer Lopez in the video for "Jenny From the Block" (2002) with hot lights, scary makeup, and "lots of leg."[21] She wrote that: "...Beyoncé's body becomes its undeniable emblem. Tom Moon of The Philadelphia Inquirer wrote that Knowles shakes every inch of her famously photogenic goddess frame."[21] The music video won three awards at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards in the categories of Best Female Video, Best R&B Video, and Best Choreography. It however lost to Good Charlotte's "Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous" in the Viewer's Choice category.[92] Director Nava also won a Music Video Production Association award for the Best R&B Video in 2004.[93][94] During the same year, the video won the Best Collaboration award at the 2004 MTV Video Music Awards Japan, where it was also nominated for the Best Female Video award.[95] "Crazy in Love" was nominated at the 36th NAACP Image Awards for the Outstanding Music Video award.[72] It won the Best International Video award at the 2004 MuchMusic Video Awards.[96]

Jay-Z and Knowles performing "Crazy in Love" during her 2009 I Am... Tour

Knowles first performed "Crazy in Love" with Jay-Z on August 28, 2003, during the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards.[97] She sang the song in a medley, with the pre-recorded vocals of Sean Paul on "Baby Boy" (2003).[98] "Crazy in Love" was included on the set list for most of Knowles' concert tours. The song was the closing track of her Dangerously in Love World Tour that began in late 2003. [99] Knowles performed "Crazy in Love" live at the 2004 BRIT Awards February 17, 2004. Monique Jessen And Todd Peterson wrote that she, "...lit up the stage with her performance of "Crazy in Love," wearing a white Roberto Cavalli dress and nearly half a million dollars worth of diamonds. The pop diva, appearing onstage in a puff of smoke, stopped midway through the song to pull up her top before walking away with the best international female solo artist award."[100] Knowles and Jay-Z performed "Crazy in Love" at The Prince's Trust Urban Music Festival at Earls Court in London on May 31, 2004.[101]

"Crazy in Love" was the first song on Knowles' set list on The Beyoncé Experience in Los Angeles and the I Am... Tour at several venues, including the Odyssey Arena in Belfast, the O2 Arena in London, and in Athens and Sydney.[102] On August 5, 2007, Knowles performed the song at Madison Square Garden in New York City.[103][104] Knowles emerged in a sparkling silver dress with a long train. She walked to the front of the stage, did a couple of snaps of her neck and then started singing "Crazy in Love". She climbed a staircase where her all-female band and three backup singers were positioned.[103] The staircase moved forward in two places; top part moved while the bottom poked out more.[103] At the top of her staircase, she removed her train and returned to the main stage. Her backup singers followed and danced with Knowles.[103] After "Crazy in Love", Knowles performed a short rendition of Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy" (2006), with Knowles singing, "Who do you, who do you think you are? / Ha, ha, ha, bless your soul."[103]

Shaheem Reid of MTV News wrote: "There are few (very few) ladies out there who can really sing, a lot who can dance, a lot more who look good — but really no other who can combine all three and add iconic star power like Miss Knowles, arguably the best all-around stage performer in the game right now."[103] Jon Pareles of The New York Times wrote: "Beyoncé needs no distractions from her singing, which can be airy or brassy, tearful or vicious, rapid-fire with staccato syllables or sustained in curlicued melismas. But she was in constant motion, strutting in costumes (most of them silvery), from miniskirts to formal dresses, flesh-toned bodysuit to bikini to negligee."[104] Frank Scheck of The Hollywood Reporter wrote: "Her performance of 'Crazy in Love' featured some surprising arrangements that gave the material freshness".[105] Performances of "Crazy in Love" were included on her live albums The Beyoncé Experience Live (2007),[106] and the deluxe edition of I Am... World Tour (2010).[107] Knowles performed "Crazy in Love" wearing a pink fringe dress at a concert at Palais Nikaïa in Nice, France, on June 20, 2011, in support of her album 4,[108] and at the 2011 Glastonbury Festival on June 26, 2011 to an audience of 175,000.[109]
