B2Krazy were a dance pop group from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The group consist of two young instrumentalists, Zael and Brett (Ryan Kruger) (both born in 1985), rapper Revren (born in 1978), lead singer Geneviève Marchesseau (born in 1975) and spiritual advisor Yahoo. The act was signed to the BMG Records subsidiary Iron Music label, and were the imprint's last act on the roster before it folded in 2000.[1]

The group is well known for their top 20 Canadian hits, "Dream About You" (which was later featured in an episode of Degrassi: The Next Generation) and "Something To Say" in 2000.

Critics claimed that their name, like that of their Canadian pop contemporaries B4-4, was a strategy to see their records filed in retail shelves shortly in front of the Backstreet Boys. However, B2Krazy's career would be brief and by 2001 the act disbanded.[2]

Since the group's dismemberment, Marchesseau became a member of the live cover/show act, The Groove Divas. She also did vocalizations on the award-winning CD "Mediterranea" by Johannes Linstead. Bret was signed as a solo artist to Capitol Records in 2006, then, after that stint, later signed to Universal Music Canada and works closely with The Family Channel. In 2008 he released a self-titled debut solo record and headlined Family Channel's "Fam Jams" Tour, travelling the country to almost 20 cities in a tour bus playing for thousands of fans. Zael is currently living in Toronto and attends the University of Guelph.
