"Baby-Baby-Baby" is a song by the group TLC. It was the second single released from their debut album, Ooooooohhh... On the TLC Tip and their second consecutive Top 10 hit. It was the most successful single from the album, reaching No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, and No. 1 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, giving them their first No. 1 single on that chart.

Song information[edit]

"Baby-Baby-Baby" was written and produced by Babyface, L.A. Reid and Daryl Simmons. The song features vocals by T-Boz, Left Eye and Chilli, although it is the first song not to contain a rap by Left Eye.

The song was sampled by rapper Bow Wow for his single "You Can Get It All". Bow Wow's song was produced by Jermaine Dupri, who also appeared in the Baby-Baby-Baby video.

Commercial performance[edit]

The song was kept from being No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 by Boyz II Men's "End of The Road" and held the runner up spot for six consecutive weeks from 15 August to 19 September 1992, and reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, giving them their first No. 1 R&B single.

It finished at No. 5 on the Billboard's Year-End Charts of 1992, and was certified Platinum by the RIAA in 1992.[1]
