Crazy in Love features Beyoncé in various dance sequences. The opening scene begins with Knowles wearing a tank top, short shorts, and red high-heels. She performs an elaborate solo dance on a riser. The scene shifts to a gold set detailing a mock photo shoot, before moving into a scene with dancers detailing Knowles and dancing against a wall while wearing caps and full length pants. She is dancing to Jay-Z's solo rap in an exotic silk print over a fur coat, and kicks a fire hydrant. She continues to dance while the water is flying all over the place. The video ends with Knowles and her dancers in front of a giant fan in vibrant dresses in contrast to the more neutral colors of the background.
The music video won three awards at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards in the categories of Best Female Video, Best R&B Video, and Best Choreography.
