"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.

If she released this today, she would be accused of cultural appropriation :lol:

It's a great song. Very catchy, even more than Crazy In Love. She's on fire in the video. Sasha Fierce before I Am...Sasha Fierce!

^^ I always thought Baby Boy was more energetic/passionate than CIL. I know that Sasha alter ego was "born" during recording of CIL.

Love this. So many memories.
Unlike other things that wither, she preserves. She’s a constant in a world of relentless flux. She’s a beacon of immortality. Bitch, she’s Madonna.

My favorite song by Beyoncé out of the few songs that I am aware of. Also the first one by her that I have ever heard. 8-) So good!

I always found this underwhelming. It's not even bad but I didn't hear what everyone else was hearing. Give me Me, Myself and I anyday over this.

This mirrors the mainstream sound at the time in the United States but I don't think it's aged badly.
