Cyclone is the third studio album and the seventh album overall by the American recording artist Baby Bash, released by Arista Records on October 30, 2007.[1]

Background[edit]

Bash has worked a long time with Happy Perez. Working with Perez, in particular, holds a special significance for him. "It's my recipe, my formula," he says. "I've been using it ever since I met Happy Perez. He did "Suga Suga", "Obsession". Without him, there'd be no Baby Bash or Frankie J.. Happy P is the one that made those beats that blew up for us."[2] Other collaborators include J. R. Rotem, Play-N-Skillz, Ryan Tedder, Aundrea Fimbres of Danity Kane, and Paula DeAnda.[3]

Cyclone is the first Baby Bash album not to contain a Parental Advisory sticker.

Singles[edit]

Singles released from the album include "Cyclone" featuring T-Pain, "What Is It" featuring Sean Kingston and "Don't Stop" featuring Keith Sweat.
