NEW: R U Crazy

Conor Maynard – R U Crazy

The man responsible for the absolutely incredible ‘Can’t Say No‘ and above average ‘Turn Around‘ returns with a new track.

The first 30 seconds of the video is truly odd, showing a light jazz rendition of the new single, it sounds better than the actual single itself. A memorising, pulsing electronic beat starts off the song proper (at 0:32), but to hear the chorus rapped makes us view Maynard as a poor man’s Taio Cruz or Tinie Tempah. Subsequently we struggle to get on board entirely with the chorus, although in its favour, it does prove to be very catchy. Then again so are STIs. The song improves, therefore, when Maynard actually starts singing, although a series of handclaps threaten to overpower that delicious beat. When the bridge of ‘Cos I’m hurting baby’ comes in, the Timberlake-esque falsetto is a genuinely glorious touch, but sadly the chorus just can’t deliver on the promise of the verses and the bridge. The middle 8 stays in 90s RnB style, with the electro throb dropping out for some softer beats, and it would have been compelling had the whole song been in this style, but alas this is not the case. Lyrically, the song is standard The Wanted ‘#lads’ fare, and we can certainly here them doing a version of the song, albeit with more singing. Rating: 7/10
