Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter (née Beyoncé Giselle Knowles; September 4, 1981), known mononymously as Beyoncé, is an American singer, songwriter, record producer and actress. Born and raised in Houston, Texas, she enrolled in various performing arts schools and was first exposed to singing and dancing competitions as a child. Knowles rose to fame in the late 1990s as the lead singer of the R&B girl group Destiny’s Child, one of the world’s best-selling girl groups of all time.
During the hiatus of Destiny’s Child, Knowles released her debut solo album, Dangerously in Love, in 2003, which spawned two number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100—”Crazy in Love” and “Baby Boy”—and became one of the most successful albums of that year, earning her a then record-tying five Grammy Awards.
“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.
