In the song, Reid waxes lyrical about the heady pursuit of affection, including spending money for “Dior shoes”, dyeing his hair on impulse, and holding out just for a reply to a text. “Oh you got me going crazy / Going crazy for you / Spendin’ all my money on some Dior shoes / Trying to be something I’m not for you,” he sings.

‘Crazy’ is the follow-up single to March’s ‘Soda’, which came complete with a futuristic music video. Its release has been celebrated with Reid appearing on billboards in New York City, as seen below.

Last month, Reid appeared on a remix of Malaysian singer Yuna’s ‘Dance Like Nobody’s Watching’. A “dance visualiser” was released by Careless Music last week (May 12), performed by Filipino hip-hop dance ensemble A-Team. Watch it below.
