Why Babies Love Beyonce

Cynthia Dermody

Cafe Sheri found this fun YouTube video of a baby dancing to Beyonce's "Single Ladies" a couple of weeks ago.

Last December, I showed you a video of toddler Arianna strutting her stuff to the hit song. Turns out these are just one of many on the Internet. Babies dancing to Beyonce has become something of a phenomenon, according to TIME magazine write Ana Calhoun.

The above video has been viewed 2.8 million times alone.

Why are so many babies dancing to the pop diva? There's a good reason and TIME dug it out:

"The song is very Teletubbies," says Tony-nominated musician Kenny Mellman, according to TIME. "If you listen to it, there is very little music. It's all drum and Beyoncé's voice."

Kara Shall, communications director of Baby Loves Disco, tells TIME she agrees. "Young children love songs with good rhythm and repetition, and 'Single Ladies' certainly has both," says Shall, whose company once a month in 21 cities turns bars into child-proof discos. (She also notes that her own children, ages 5 and 2, are big fans of the Beyoncé song.) 

TIME.com also put together a video mashup of babies dancing to "Single Ladies". Click the link to watch it.
