Let’s just get this out in the open: When stacked up with Cheryl Cole‘s previous lead singles from her albums — songs like “Fight For This Love,” “Promise This” and the outstanding, Calvin Harris-produced “Call My Name” — “Crazy Stupid Love” is pretty much a sonic dud. I wish there was some way to sugar-coat that for you Cheryl fans out there, but, no, sorry — it’s just not a good single. At all.
The video doesn’t really help matters, as here Cole opts for the tired “werkin’ it in the club” concept. The whole thing feels like when you order pizza for delivery, then 40 minutes later it finally arrives and you’re super starving and so ready to dig into a few slices, but then you flip the box open to find three dead rats piled on top of a sawed-off hooker arm. Don’t you hate when that happens? That’s what this song and its accompanying video are like. Hooker arm.
