Hollywood Records recording artists In Real Life, have released their latest single, “Crazy AF,” available HERE. The song was written by Rykeys (Wiz Khalifa, Little Mix), Marc Bassy (Charlie Puth), Ayanna Howard, and IRL’s own Michael Conor. The band also announced they’ll release the official music video for the single on April 4th.
The guys of IRL explain the summery R&B-tinged pop tune is about love and all the crazy things that go along with it. “We’re really excited about this new sound we have coming,” says Sergio Calderon. “It’s something that’s more fun and fresh, and we think people will vibe with the melody and the message of the song.”
In less than two years, IRL have gathered a social media following of nearly three million, and they’ve amassed over 50 million streams. The band hit the road last year on their own headline tour, and on the American Idol tour. They’ve performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Good Morning America, Live with Kelly & Ryan, Despierta America and TRL. IRL also hit the Top 40 charts with their blithely funky smash hit, “Tattoo (How ‘Bout You).”
IRL is comprised of five unique members: Michael Conor, Sergio Calderon, Brady Tutton, Drew Ramos and Chance Perez. IRL is this generation’s Backstreet Boys, with their own unique twist. Their music is a hybrid of R&B and five-part pop harmonies, with the addition of a rapid-fire rapper, and the surprise of occasional Spanish lyrics. IRL incorporates instruments in their live performances; all five members play guitar, and Michael plays the violin. The band members hail from different parts of the country and from diverse backgrounds, but when they come together they are unstoppable.
