"Baby" is a song by American singer Brandy Norwood, taken from her self-titled debut studio album, Brandy. It was penned by Keith Crouch, Kipper Jones, and Rahsaan Patterson and produced by the former. Released as the album's second single on December 24, 1994 in the United States, the song spent four weeks on top of the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. It also reached number 4 on the Hot 100 and the New Zealand singles chart, and number 16 in Australia. A music video was accompanied and directed by Hype Williams. It was photographed in the middle of Times Square in New York City in December 1994 and portrays Norwood and her company dancing in skiing outfits. Met with generally positive reviews from contemporary critics, "Baby" was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance at the 1996 ceremony.
