Blame it on “Baby”: For decades and decades on the Billboard charts, the word has been as unavoidable in the names of the songs, albums and artists topping our various listings as nearly any other.
That continues this week with the ascent of DaBaby’s “Rockstar” to the top of the Billboard Hot 100. Not only is it the first No. 1 entry on the chart for the rap star (as well as the second of the year for breakout guest Roddy Ricch), it’s also the first “Baby” No. 1 of any kind on the Hot 100 this decade — though very likely not the last.
To honor DaBaby’s chart achievement, as well as the chart achievements of countless “Baby”s throughout the years, Billboard has prepared a 20-question quiz that goes “Baby” on “Baby” and then some. Test your knowledge below — 60% is needed for a passing grade, but if you don’t get it at first, feel free to take it baby one more time.
