Songfacts®:

  • This is the lead single from Chris Brown and Young Thug's mixtape Slime & B. The pair previously collaborated on the official remix of Brown's 2015 song "Wrist," the free-released 2016 track "Dat Night," and the 2017 Heartbreak on a Full Moon cut, "High End."
  • Brown and Young Thug address their girlfriends throughout the song, urging them to be uninhibited in the bedroom (to "go crazy") when they turn up in their cribs. Because their ladies are special to them, they promise to splash out on luxury clothing and jewelry to make them happy.
  • The track samples The Showboys 1986 single "Drag Rap (Triggerman)." Drake also borrowed from the track for his 2018 hit single "Nice For What," while Brown previously sampled it on his 2019 song "Emerald / Burgundy."
  • Production is courtesy of:

    Murphy Kid, whose previous credits include TLC's "Sy Ari da Kid" and Usher's "Rivals."

    KanielTheOne, who frequently produces for Lil Xan and $teven Cannon.
  • The song inspired an Instagram dance challenge, the #gocrazychallenge, in which participants dance to the track alongside a moving car whose door is open. It is similar to Drake's "#InMyFeelingsChallenge," where people jump out of a car to perform the dance.
