"Ooh, Ooh Baby" is the debut single performed by American R&B singer Taral Hicks. The song features a guest appearance by then–unknown Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott, who was at the time an ex-member of DeVante Swing's act Sista. The song was released in June 18, 1996 as the first single from Hicks' debut album, This Time (1997).[1] A music video for the song was directed by Hype Williams, but it was never released.

The song debuted on Billboard Hot R&B Singles in July 6, 1996 at #82 and would later peak at #81 the following week.[2][3]

"Ooh, Ooh Baby" has also been noted to be Elliott's second featured appearance on a single as a solo artist; the first being "That's What Little Girls Are Made Of" in 1993.
