The video is a waste of time, but it needs to be said again (and again) that "Crazy in Love" by Beyoncé featuring Jay-Z is killer, undoubtedly one of the tunes of the year. A heavy heavy backbeat, crazy horns (horny like Mousse T), B wailing away and her boy Jay-Hova on able backup, it's loud, it's messy, it's all over the place, and it's brilliant. I'm absolutely shocked that it's assaulting the US charts the way it is - I figured a record this great (even from two stars such as these) would be left in the cold. Expect to hear it banging away all summer, and like Loverboy, I'm lovin' every minute of it.
