Producer Boots Talks Reworking Beyoncé's 'Crazy in Love' for '50 Shades of Grey' Soundtrack: 'She gives me chills'


Be honest, how many times have you played the new 50 Shades of Grey trailer just to hear Beyoncé’s new version of “Crazy in Love”?

Producer Boots spoke to Complex mag about the process they went through to remake the song for the film.

“I like to think of myself as more than just a producer. I look at what we did for the trailer and this version of the song is, very much in my opinion, a score. It was something that I consciously scored. Whenever it comes to the stuff that Bey and I do, I’ll never speak for her, but I think that she killed it. She just absolutely killed it. The acapellas that she did gives me chills, so it’s really dope,” Boots told Complex.

He added:

“I think it was just falling in love can make you do crazy sh*t. That was the spirit of the original song in the first place, we flipped it and it kind of became a whole thing. This is the first time I’ve ever worked on a trailer.”

Boots wouldn’t say whether or not we could expect to hear more Beyoncé music on the ’50 Shades’ soundtrack, but we’re hopeful.
