CRZY – “Wanted” feat. Chris Brown

Okay. Not mad at this at all. Plus, being an ’80s music lover I am all about some heavy synth in the music. It channels the vibe of a ‘it has a great beat and I can dance to it’ tune… like the Run-It-Run-It Chris Brown days. Grownish up-tempo jawn that oughta make it easy for a young dude to pull a young Honey onto the floor to move with him; or she can pull the dude. Whatever. Just get into the music and let it get into you.

Nice work CRZY & C-B-R-O-W-N!

CRZY released his Chris Brown-assisted track “Wanted” today via Under Rated Music Group. “Wanted” is the first official release from the chart-topping producer whose first collaboration with AfroJack, “As Your Friend,” was a global Top 40 smash hit and soared on the Billboard US Dance Club chart.

On how he connected with Chris Brown, CRZY says, “this record came about because one of my managers had a relationship with Chris Brown. He was playing him some songs and one the songs he really liked, but he felt like the song could be better produced better. The team then suggested that I should reproduce it. So I sent it to Chris and he loved it and gave it to me to put out!”

CRZY, born Nadir Sakir, is a Dutch rapper, producer and DJ based in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Always known for being on the wrong side of the law as a child, his friends aptly named him CRAZY. Not focused on school and always leaning toward the more tumultuous avenues in life, CRZY found inspiration in American rap. He eventually dropped out of school and began producing full-time. After creating a name for himself in the Rotterdam rap scene, he one day turned to the mic himself. His demo was fatefully passed to world renowned DJ and performer AfroJack, who loved Nadir and began working with him immediately.

In 2013, the two collaborated on the Billboard Dance Chart topping global smash hit, “As Your Friend” also featuring Chris Brown. The multi-million streaming track’s video has garnered over 30 million views to date. The global chart-topping collaboration eventually lead to a partnership with Dutch soccer star, Ryan Babel, forming Under Rated Music Group.

Gearing up to release his first project aptly titled #VanGogh and featuring guest appearances from Chris Brown and Jay Critch, CRZY is poised to continue cementing himself as a global breaking superstar.
