"Hush Little Baby" is a song by English rapper Wretch 32 which appears on his debut studio album, Black and White. The song is track thirteen on the standard edition of the album, and one of eleven collaborations; currently set to be released as the fifth and final single from the album on 27 May 2012.[1] The song, which features singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, was produced by the team TMS and co-written alongside Iain James.[2] The track debuted at number eighty-seven on the UK Singles Chart[3] and number twelve on the independent chart[4] on 3 September 2011 following strong downloading from the respective album. The song is an adaptation of the American lullaby, Hush, Little Baby. In reviewing the album, BBC Music representative Joseph 'JP' Patterson stated "unlike many other albums where the central MC is joined by several contributors, the collaborations, including Sheeran, Chipmunk and Etta Bond, don't take away any shine from the artist at the core of this release".[5]
