Story of Song
‘Crazy Stupid Love’ indeed. The lyrics say: “You saw right through me, melted me down to the core, I was done when you walked through that door, you make my brain just stop, sink my heart to my feet… I’m in crazy stupid love.” It was originally recorded by Kylie Minogue for her Kiss Me Once album, but Kylie’s manager Roc Nation did not like it, saying it was too poppy. Wilkins later gave the track to Cheryl to record. Cheryl re-wrote several of the verses to personalize it. She suggested Tinie Tempah to rap on the tune.
