Riff: Justin Bieber feat. Ludacris – “Baby”

Dec 31, 2012

And I was like baby, baby, baby, whoa/Like, baby, baby, baby, no

from Baby lyrics by Justin Bieber feat. Ludacris

What can be said about “Baby” that hasn’t been said already? It takes the most exhausted chords in existence and slaps the word “baby” over it 56 times. The chorus suggests he may have a stutter. Look very closely at 0:26 to see the subliminal marketing tactics South Park skewered come to life.
