The Song of The Week IV. Beyoncé: ‘Crazy In Love’ (2003)

Por Alba Carmona.

Crazy in Love, que significa en español ‘locamente enamorada’, es el primer hit del album ‘Dangerously in Love‘, de Beyoncé, durante el 2003. El álbum cuenta con la colaboración musical de Jay-Z y supuso la presentación de Beyoncé como cantante solista tras su paso por el grupo Destinity´s Child. La canción fue escrita por la misma Beyoncé, Rich Harrison, Shawn Carter y Eugene Record. Inicialmente se tenía planeado el primer sencillo del álbum sería la cancion Naughtly Girl, pero se creyó que no tendría suficiente potencial para ser el single-debut de Beyoncé.

Crazy in Love se ha convertido en el mayor éxito internacional de Beyoncé. Fue nº 1 en el Billboard Hot 100 durante ocho semanas, vendió más de un millón de copias y recibió la certificación de Disco de Platino.

Crazy in Love trata de una chica que está locamente enamorada de un chico. Está enamorada de sus características físicas, de su forma de hacer las cosas, y le atrae mucho sexualmente. Le gusta tanto que llega a estar alucinando: cree verlo en todas partes. Le gusta que la vea guapa y se compra ropa sólo para él. Cuando están juntos nunca quiere que se vaya y cuando están separados pasa todo el tiempo, loca de amor, mirando el móvil.

Yes! so crazy right now
Most incredibly
It’s your girl b
It’s your boy young

I look and stare so deep in your eyes
I touch on you more and more every time
When you leave I’m beggin you not to go
Call your name two, three times in a row
Such a funny thing for me to try to explain
How I’m feeling and my pride is the one to blame
Yeah, cause I know I don’t understand
Just how your love can do what no on else can

Got me lookin so crazy right now
Your love’s got me lookin so crazy right now

Lookin so crazy your love’s got me lookin

When I talk to my friends so quietly
“Who he think he is?” Look at what you’ve done to me
Tennis shoes don’t even need to buy a new dress
You ain’t there, ain’t nobody else to impress
It’s the way that you know what I thought I knew
It’s the beat that my heart skips when I’m with you
Yeah, but I still don’t understand
Just how your love can do what no one else can

Got me lookin so crazy right now
Your love’s got me lookin so crazy right now
(Your love)
Got me lookin so crazy right now your touch’s
Got me lookin so crazy right now
(Your touch)

Young hova
Ya’ll know when the flow is loco
Young b and the r-o-c uh oh
O-g, big homie
The one and only
Stick boney but the pockets are fat like tony

Soprano the roc handle
Like van exel
I shake phonies man, you can’t get next to
A genuine article, I do not sing tho
I sling though , if anything I bling yo

Star like ringo
War like a green berret
You’re crazy bring your whole set
Jay-Z in the range
Crazy and deranged
They can’t figure him out
They’re like “hey is he insane?”

Yes sir I’m cut from a different cloth
My texture is the best fur, I’m chinchilla

I’ve been ill of the chain smokers
How you think I go the name hova
I’ve been reala’
The game’s over

Fall back young ever since
I made you change over to platinum
The game’s been a wrap
One

Got me looking so crazy, my baby
I’m not myself lately
I’m foolish, I don’t do this
I’ve been played myself
Baby I don’t care
Cuz your love 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
Cuz baby you got me so crazy

Got me lookin so crazy right now
Your love’s got me lookin so crazy right now

Got me lookin so crazy right now your touch’s
Got me lookin so crazy right now

Got me hoping you page me right now your kiss’s
Got me hoping you save me right now
Lookin so crazy your love’s got me lookin
