"I'm Gonna Love You Just a Little More Baby" is a song written, produced and recorded by Barry White.

White recorded three song demos of himself singing and playing the piano, and he told his business partner Larry Nunes about the song, who convinced White to re-record and release it. Appearing with White on the recording session for the song were guitarists Ray Parker Jr., Wah Wah Watson, Dean Parks, and David T. Walker; drummer Ed Greene; bassists Wilton Felder of the Crusaders and Nathan East; and vibes player Gary Coleman.[1] Released in the spring of 1973 as the first single from his 1973 debut album I've Got So Much to Give, the song was a number-one hit on the US R&B chart for two weeks, peaked at number three on the Billboard Pop Singles chart[2] and reached number 23 on the UK singles chart. The single was also certified gold by the RIAA for sales of one million copies. The track is also featured in the films LOL , Walking with Dinosaurs and in the series "Friends" in the episode starring Denise Richards.
