A hit song that was released in 1998 for the Doctor Dolittle Soundtrack. The song was mainly produced by Timbaland, and was sang by Aaliyah with background vocals provided by Playa. It was written and composed by the late Static Major (Stephen Ellis Garrett). Many people just refer to it as the song with the baby laughing/crying it it.

t or It has been said that the song was cut (made) in one night, and was originally not supposed to have the cooing baby sound effect in the background. Timbaland decided to throw that in at the last minute, despite some of his friends saying that it sounded stupid. He felt that he knew what he was doing when he put it in there, and apparently he was right, because it has been a unique hit ever since. Also, the "dirty south" intro to the song was thrown in at the last minute along with the baby giggling.

DESPITE WHAT YOU MAY HAVE HEARD, THE BABY GIGGLING DID NOT COME FROM ONE OF AALIYAH'S HOME VIDEOS. THAT EFFECT HAS BEEN USED IN EVERYTHING FROM TOYS TO TELEVISION COMMERCIALS, AND THEY DID NOT GET IT FROM AALIYAH. IT HAS BEEN OUT FOR YEARS. TIMBALAND GOT IT FROM SOMEWHERE ELSE, LIKE POSSIBLY THE INTERNET. IF YOU GO ON LIMEWIRE AND TYPE IN "BABY GIGGLING", THEN YOU JUST MIGHT FIND IT.

This song continues to be a hit today, despite being overshadowed by her other ones such as rock the boat, try again and miss you.
My favorite song by Aaliyah will always be Are you that somebody?.
