Background Edit

Following appearances on albums by Pitbull and David Guetta, Rexha worked on a follow up to her debut solo single "I Can't Stop Drinking About You" released earlier in 2014. On December 8, Rexha released a demo of a song called "Cry Wolf", rumoured to be a new single, It featured a feisty chorus of “You’re so bad yeah I get it, you made your bed now rest in it. Run and cry wolf!” however, four days later, it was announced that "I'm Gonna Show You Crazy" would be the next single. A preview was also released. The song was released on December 19.

Critical reception Edit

Bradley Stern of MuuMuse gave the song a positive review, saying it's "insanely good". He said "The defiance written all over the track is positively delicious, as Bebe yelps her way across soldiering drum beats, synths and one monster of a chorus. Kevipod of Direct Lyrics said; "Our new favourite Brooklyn girl just released a killer song worthy of being on high rotation on Top 40 radios and in the Top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 (at least!). Amazing pop-dance production? check!, more politically incorrect content? check!, fierce vocals? check!, and amazingly catchy chorus, hell yeah check! My good Lord. That chorus!"

Music video Edit

An acoustic video version of the song was released on February 25, 2015. The clip sees the songstress shedding tears and lashing out while powerfully belting out the song above an acoustic guitar strum. The main video was released on April 21, 2015 and it was directed by Hannah Lux Davis.

Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
There's a war inside my head
Sometimes I wish that I was dead
I'm broken
So I call this therapist
And she said, “Girl, you can’t be fixed, just take this.”

[Pre-Chorus]
I'm tired of trying to be normal
I'm always overthinking
I'm driving myself crazy
So what if I'm fucking crazy?
And I don't need your quick fix
I don't want your prescriptions
Just 'cause you say I'm crazy
So what if I'm fucking crazy?

[Chorus]
And I'm gonna show you loco maniac
Sick bitch, psychopath
Yeah, I'm gonna show you, I'm gonna show you
Yeah, I'm gonna show you mental, out my brain
Bat shit, go insane
Yeah, I'm gonna show you, I'm gonna show you
Yeah, I'm gonna show you

[Verse 2]
I've been searching city streets
Trying to find the missing piece, like you said
And I searched hard only to find
There's not a single thing that's wrong with my mind

[Pre-Chorus]
Yeah, I'm tired of trying to be normal
I'm always over thinking
I'm driving myself crazy
So what if I'm fucking crazy?
And I don't need your quick fix
I don't want your prescriptions
Just 'cause you say I'm crazy
So what if I'm fucking crazy?

[Chorus]
I'm gonna show you loco, maniac
Sick bitch, psychopath
Yeah, I'm gonna show you, I'm gonna show you
Yeah, I'm gonna show you mental, out my brain
Bat shit, go insane
Yeah, I'm gonna show you, I'm gonna show you
I'm gonna show you

[Bridge]
Crazy, crazy
Yeah, I'm gonna show you
Crazy, crazy
Yeah, I'm gonna show you
Crazy, crazy
(Yeah, yeah)

[Breakdown]
Tired of trying to be normal
I'm driving myself crazy
No, I don't need your quick fix
I don't want your prescriptions
Just 'cause you say I'm crazy
So what if I'm fucking crazy?

[Chorus]
Yeah, I'm gonna show you... loco, maniac
Sick bitch, psychopath
Yeah, I'm gonna show you, I'm gonna show you
Yeah, I'm gonna show you mental, out my brain
Bat shit, go insane
Yeah, I'm gonna show you, I'm gonna show you
I'm gonna show you
