Obsessed with Beyonce's 'Crazy in Love' From 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Trailer? Boots Explains Reworking the Song with Bey!

Producer Boots, who has frequently collaborated with Beyonce, scored the famous “Crazy in Love” track for the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer which dropped earlier today.

Fans of Boots and Beyonce can not stop talking about her fierce rendition of “Crazy in Love,” and now Boots is explaining the process they went through to remake the song for the trailer.

“I like to think of myself as more than just a producer. I look at what we did for the trailer and this version of the song is, very much in my opinion, a score. It was something that I consciously scored. Whenever it comes to the stuff that Bey and I do, I’ll never speak for her, but I think that she killed it. She just absolutely killed it. The acapellas that she did gives me chills, so it’s really dope,” Boots told Complex.

“I think it was just falling in love can make you do crazy sh*t. That was the spirit of the original song in the first place, we flipped it and it kind of became a whole thing. This is the first time I’ve ever worked on a trailer,” Boots added about the song choice.

Read more over at Complex about if he is working on more for the film, and his future with Bey – and be sure to check out Beyonce‘s amazing vocals in the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer!

  • Shoes

    @Feets: Mine too.

  • Matt

    It’s one of the few songs by her I really really like.
    But she’s dodgy, taking writing credits where it isn’t due. Something just reeks about how phony she is in all aspects of her life.

    @Matt: its called business. i wonder how many other entertainers do the same thing but don’t have obsessive haters like Beyonce…
