"Baby Boy" is a song by American singer-songwriter Beyoncé, featuring Jamaican recording artist Sean Paul. It was written and composed by Beyoncé, Sean Paul, Scott Storch, Robert Waller, and Jay-Z for Beyoncé's 2003 debut solo studio album, Dangerously in Love. It was also on Sean Paul's own Grammy Award-winning album Dutty Rock, which was re-released in 2003. Containing a lyrical interpolation of "No Fear" by hip hop group O.G.C, "Baby Boy" is an R&B and dancehall song with reggae and Arabic music influences. It was released as the second single from Dangerously in Love to United States radios on August 3, 2003. The single topped the US Billboard Hot 100 chart for nine consecutive weeks, and was Beyoncé's longest-running solo number-one single until 2007. The song's music video was directed by Jake Nava and mostly shows Beyoncé dancing in various locations. "Baby Boy" has remained a staple of Beyoncé's concert set list. Beyoncé first performed "Baby Boy" live at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards; she also performed the song with Sean Paul at the 2003 MTV Europe Music Awards later that year.
