Music: Best Babyface Songs + Collaborations of All Time

I heard an audio clip from one of the rock bands I listen to (I forgot which one) and they mentioned that Babyface helped with a few of their hit songs and I remember thinking that’s pretty cool considering Babyface’s primary genre is R&B/Soul. I also just recently discovered that he has written for Whitney Houston, P!nk, Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, BeyoncĂ©, Aretha Franklin, Colbie Caillat and so many other popular musicians.

I grew up listening to Babyface and it’s wonderful to see is musical influence still be admired and appreciated. This title gets thrown around a lot but, he is truly a musical genius and since it’s Babyface’s birthday (April 10th, he’s an Aries), I would like to celebrate his art and legacy.
