"Baby It's You" is a song by American recording artist JoJo, featuring American rapper Bow Wow. Written by Harvey Mason, Jr., Damon Thomas, Eric Dawkins and Antonio Dixon, and produced by The Underdogs, the song was released in September 2004 as the second single from JoJo's self-titled debut album. It reached number 22 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number eight on the UK Singles Chart. JoJo performed the song on All That in 2005.

Song information[edit]

While the single version (which can also be found on the UK and Japanese pressings of the JoJo album) features Bow Wow, the song's original version, called "album version", does not feature him. In 2005, actress Alyson Stoner recorded a cover of "Baby It's You". It samples Sean Paul and Busta Rhymes' "Make It Clap"

Directed by Erik White the weekend of August 7, 2004 on location at Six Flags Magic Mountain and Hurricane Harbor. Most of the performance shots were filmed in front of the Center Ring gaming area and other shots feature the ProSlide Tornado, Scream! and Colossus roller coasters. It premiered on TRL September 7, peaked as high as number four and lasted 23 days on the countdown.
