Crazy Like You

Album: Kimberly: The People I Used to Know (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • K. Michelle told Billboard about this song:

    "[Here] it's a specific knucklehead rapper that I'm like, 'You make me crazy, and you got me acting like a fool.' The type of stuff that love like that will [make you] do is unreal. When you're mad at a man, you'll say anything to him. Then you be like, 'You wasn't even worth it. I can't believe I was that stupid.' A lot of women will clap their hands to that one."
  • According to Michelle's listening session with BET Music, Atlanta-based rapper Rocko, whom she allegedly dated for a time, was the inspiration for this song.
