And the 90s nostalgia train keeps chugging along...
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Amy Grant's crossover pop hit from 1991, "Baby Baby," Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Tori Kelly teamed up with the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter to give the tune a fresh spin.
Upon its original release, the song took No. 1 on both the Top 40 and Billboard Hot 100 charts, while simultaneously hitting top 10 in 10 countries. The album it came from (the hit-filled Heart In Motion) garnered four Grammy nominations and was RIAA® certified 5X platinum.
*Tidbit: This was also on constant rotation on both my tape cassette deck and CD player throughout most of my preadolescence. (Nothing like a silver anniversary of something you cherish to make you feel nice and ancient.)
Check out what went on behind the scenes of the new recording (and hear a sample):
The impact of "Baby Baby" was a game changer not only for Grant, but for an entire genre. The song took No. 1 on both the Top 40 and Billboard Hot 100 charts, while simultaneously hitting top 10 in ten countries. The album bearing the song (Heart In Motion) garnered four GRAMMY® nominations and was RIAA® certified 5X platinum.
The new "Baby Baby" hits digital stores April 29.
