Daddy is a song recorded by American singer Beyoncé for her debut studio album, Dangerously in Love (2003). It was composed by Beyoncé and Mark Batson. The song was not originally intended to be featured on the final track listing of the album. Beyoncé was able to record the song as the release date of her debut album had been postponed. "Daddy" was released to US iTunes Store as a digital single on June 3, 2003, through Columbia Records. Beyoncé explained that the song's development was motivated by the devotion and the loyalty her father/manager, Mathew Knowles has towards his family members. Many of the songs on the album examine aspects of relationships. However, "Daddy" was considered to be an element analyzing the kinship ties between a father and his offspring from a different and more powerful perspective. Music critics, who generally received the song with positive reception, commented that the song was a way for Beyoncé to pay tribute to her father.
Daddy is a term typically used to refer to one's father or a male figure in a person's life who acts as a caregiver, protector, and provider.
