Album: Free Yourself
Fantasia's intentions on "Baby Mama" are nothing short of inspirational: an anthem for single mothers. But the fake calls from "real baby mamas" and the B-A-B-Y, M-A-M-A chant make it almost laughable. She sings "It's about time we had our own song/Don't know what took so long/'Cuz now a days it's like a badge of honor/To be a baby mama" and it's immediately hard to take the anthem seriously.
Plus, Webbie, Lil Boosie and Lil Phat would go on to truly perfect spelling out words in a chorus two years later with "Independent." —Lauren Nostro
