"Bop Bop Baby" is the third single to be released from Westlife's third studio album, World of Our Own. The single peaked at #5 on the UK Singles Chart. However, during an interview, the band claimed this was due to the obscure choice of single, as they would have much preferred to release "Why Do I Love You" - and had even recorded a video for it.[citation needed] The song was written by band members Shane Filan and Brian McFadden, alongside producers and writers Chris O'Brien and Graham Murphy. It sold over 120,000 copies in the UK.[1][2]
