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. The band was the original creation of Wayne Fromm. it was based on the toy known as Crazy Bones that was marketed by Fromm and Eric Segal by their company All 4 Fun Toy Products Ltd. The music video "Something to Say" contains short animated images of Crazy Bones characters. Fromm was introduced to Iron Music through an associate Brian Stutz. Fromm sold his shares to Segal after the release of "Dream About You". Fromm went on to invent what is commonly referred to as the selfie stick. Segal and Aubrey and Sean Windfield, of Iron Music, continued the project for a short time thereafter.

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]

Brett Ryan Kruger is one half of Toronto's multi platinum songwriting/production team The Maven Boys. He has worked with Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Nicole Scherzinger and many others.
