"It celebrates the evolution of a woman. It talks about a girl who is at the point of a relationship. She realises that she's in love, she's doing stuff she wouldn't normally do but she doesn't care. It doesn't matter she's just crazy in love. Rich Harrison actually wrote the song with me and after I finished the song I asked Jay Z to be part of the song and he did. The song turned out great it ended up being my first single." - Beyoncé
"The song talks about how, when you're falling in love, you do things that are out of character and you don't really care because you're just open. The song came from me actually looking crazy one day in the studio. I said, 'I'm lookin' crazy right now,' and Rich Harrison, the producer, was like, 'That's the song!'' - Beyoncé
