Songfacts®:

  • Bebe Rexha's first exposure in the music business came when she was chosen to be the vocalist for Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz's project, Black Cards. The Staten Island native went on to find success in as a songwriter, most notably in 2013 co-penning Eminem and Rihanna's chart-topper "The Monster." Rexha subsequently dissolved her original deal with Island Def Jam, reinventing herself on Warner Bros. Records.
  • This is the lead single from Rexha's debut EP with Warner, I Don't Wanna Grow Up. "'I'm Gonna Show You Crazy' is one of the most angst-y songs on the EP, because it was written during when I wrote 'Monster,'" Rexha told Billboard magazine. "I was upset and feeling dark, and a lot of these songs are just about me growing up and trying to love myself and understand relationships."

    "I think what people get confused about is that they want to label me as this EDM girl, but a lot of this stuff is genre-less," she added. "One of my biggest inspirations was Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill. The most important thing to me is that it's all really raw."
