About Baby I

"Baby I" is a song recorded by American singer Ariana Grande for her debut studio album Yours Truly (2013). It was written by Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, Antonio Dixon and Patrick "J. Que" Smith and produced by the first two. The song was released by Republic Records on July 22, 2013, as the second single from the album. The song was initially written with the singer Beyoncé in mind, but she rejected it. "Baby I" is a pop and R&B song with drums, horns and a syncopated beat. It also contains an uptempo '90s-inspired beat. Lyrically, the song is about not being able to fully express your feelings towards someone you love. The song was well received by music critics who complimented the song's "throwback" sound while others praised Grande's vocals comparing to the singer Mariah Carey. The song was serviced to contemporary hit radio in the United States on August 8, 2013. Commercially, it debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at its peak position of number 21 mainly due to the strong digital sales, 141,000 copies, during its first week of availability, and stayed in the charts for four non-consecutive weeks. The single also earned a top twenty peak on the US Dance Club Songs and charted within the top thirty of the Rhythmic chart. Internationally, the recording placed in number 67 in Australia, 57 in Canada, while reaching number six in Japan and earned a gold certification in the country becoming Grande's first top 10 single in this region. "Baby I" has since been certified Gold by the RIAJ and Platinum by the RIAA.

Baby I got love for thee
So deep inside of me I don't know where to start
I love you more than anything
But the words cant even touch what's in my heart

When I try to explain it I be sounding insane
The words don't ever come out right
I get all tongue tied (and twisted)
I can't explain what I'm feeling

And I say baby, baby
Baby (baby I)
Oh baby, oh baby, my baby (baby I)
Oh baby, baby I (baby I)
All I'm tryna say is you're my everything baby
But every time I try to say it words they only complicate it

Baby, baby (ooh oh)

Baby I'm so down for you
No matter what you do (real talk) I'll be around
Oh baby, see baby I been feelin' you
Before I even knew what feelings were about
Oh baby

When I try to explain it I be sounding all crazy
The words don't ever come out right
I get all tongue tied (and twisted)
I can't explain what I'm feeling

And I say baby, baby
Baby (baby I)
Oh baby, oh baby, my baby (baby I)
Oh baby, baby I (baby I)
All I'm tryna say is you're my everything baby
But every time I try to say it words they only complicate it

Baby, baby
Baby, baby

Straight up, you got me
All in, how could I not be
I sure hope you know (I sure hope you know)
If it's even possible, I love you more
Than word love can say it
It's better not explaining that's why I keep saying baby I

Ooh baby, oh baby, my baby (Baby I)
Oh baby, baby I (baby I)
All I'm tryna say is you're my everything baby
But every time I try to say it words they only complicated

Baby, baby (baby)
Baby, baby (baby I)
Ooh baby oh baby oh baby (baby I)
Oh baby
(Baby I) All I'm tryna say is you're my everything baby
But every time I try to say it words they only complicated
Every time I try to say it words they only complicated
Every time I try to say it words they only complicated

Baby, baby
Baby, baby
