Extreme low end at the end of Seal's "Crazy"

I always notice this part, even on small speakers. The last verse, which I believe was cut from the radio mix, has an unbelievably huge low end that comes in, either from a kick sample or a synth bass thing. I think it's brilliant that it only comes in at the very end. What do you think is playing that part?

dont wanan kidnap this thread, but there is an avril lavigne song.. Scaterboy?? not shure.. the song is very bad mixed, and has no lowend (or only a small amount of).. and then at the end of the verse, I think it happens 3 times in the song, is this ultra brutal and loud 40 to 80hz roll.. :D

Sk8er Boi! Haha, spelled like a true teenager message board poster. I hear what you are saying about that song... there's those random 808 hits on the downbeat of the first verse. And yes, there is NO low end on that song. Is that TLA?

Seal low end

According to Tim Weidner who mixes Seal, he uses a very simple sine wave generator and sweeps it down! Simple as that!
