2. An African-American version of the common saying, "hey baby". "Hey baby" originates from the local usage in California from the 1960's to 1970's. This derogatory word is sometimes misleading to women, given its past as a mating call for a douchebag. While it may first be seen as a booty call, "a bay bay" is, if anything, a personable and vocal way of showing interest in a hottie at the club.
3. A common greeting from one bro to another. As such, one young man might yell "ay bay bay" to his friend (male or female) across the movie theater to get attention. Shortly after the release of the single, this classic usage originates from a water polo tournament held at Villanova University in August of 2007. It has also been indirectly labled as the theme song for a bus or van ride.

The music is typical of Shreveport's Ratchet Music movement due to its use of repeated synthesizer hooks and minimal drums and bass. The chant "A Bay Bay" is derived from "Hey, Bay Bay" with Bay Bay being the nickname of local DJ Hollyhood Bay Bay. People in the club would chant his name for a new song, soon it became used in many clubs for a new song.
The single is currently garnering national airplay thanks in part to being featured on numerous mixtapes and its catchy chorus.
