If you’re an R&B singer dropping a single, you can do a lot worse than having Fabolous provide a guest rap verse. From classics like Lil’ Mo’s “Superwoman” to recent smashes like Trey Songz’ “Say Aah,” Fab is adept at giving sleek soul tracks a hip-hop edge.
Case in point, Kevin Cossom’s “Baby I Like It,” which goes from zero to 60 in a matter of bars, thanks in no small part to Fabolous’ brief cameo. Taking things to the next level is Diddy, who jumps in to mention the “exotic chick playing Sade” on his piano.
For Cossom’s part, the track is Auto-Tuned beyond belief, almost psychedelically so. Things get heavy when the beat drops in the chorus. This is definitely a track prepped and primed for the club.
The video, directed by Collin Tilley, is pretty straightforward, with the artists flossing in Technicolor and some special effects tossed in for good measure. Check out Kevin Cossom’s “Baby I Like It,” featuring Fabolous and Diddy, below.
