Multi-hyphenate artist Baby Tate returns with “Ain’t No Love,” an unapologetic club banger featuring 2 Chainz via Warner Records. With nods to ‘00s party anthems from Ciara and Usher, the Atlanta artist’s latest single and video is an ode to the dance floor, independence, and all of the pleasures of a night of overindulgence — except love.
Beginning with an interpolation of Ciara’s 2004 hit “Oh” and then overhauling Usher’s “Love In This Club” on the chorus, “Ain’t No Love” underscores Baby Tate’s ability to float effortlessly between hip-hop, R&B, and even pop. “Ain’t no love in this club,” the singer-rapper repeats like a mantra. For Baby Tate, it’s about the power of knowing your worth and staying in control. That attitude is reflected in the free-wheeling video. Watch it above.
The feisty track comes ahead of the rising artist’s Mani/Pedi mixtape release on September 30, which includes recent singles like “Sl*t Him Out” and “Dancing Queen.” Though her recent run is an impressive streak representative of an artist coming into her own, she’s been fusing pop, rap, and R&B since the release of her 2015 debut project, ROYGBIV, as well as 2019’s acclaimed GIRLS, and 2021’s After the Rain. When Baby Tate isn’t living in her own technicolor universe, she’s collaborating with her contemporaries like LAYA on the genre-bending “Sailor Moon 2.0” and JID on the 21 Savage-assisted “Surround Sound” from his The Forever Story album. And now, Mani/Pedi is poised to take Baby Tate to the next level.
With irresistible club anthems like “Ain’t No Love,” she’s ready to soundtrack late nights and good times for months to come.

ABOUT BABY TATE:
Fueled by self-love and manifested dreams, Baby Tate is forever evolving. The Atlanta-based artist, formerly known as Yung Baby Tate, has a new, concise moniker, but the 25-year-old’s sound remains sprawling. Within a single body of work, you’ll hear summery pop, amorous R&B, and hard-hitting hip-hop. Baby Tate’s debut project, 2015’s ROYGBIV, saw her exercising full creative control, as a singer, songwriter, rapper, producer, and engineer—independent skills she’s been honing since she was 13 years old. By 2018, Baby Tate had locked into executing concept albums, releasing the thematic BOYS EP, followed by her breakthrough project, GIRLS, in 2019. With both collections, Baby Tate expanded her musicality and songwriting processes, connecting strongly to women and femme audiences through kaleidoscopic beats and highly relatable lyrics. At the center of Baby Tate’s endeavors is an intentional interweaving of female empowerment and joy, as evidenced by her cohesive, yet varied 2020 EP After the Rain, the home of her viral, confidence-boosting hit “I Am.” A genuine heroine for any person who’s ever faced intrapersonal challenges, the multi-hyphenate artist offers both gentle and assertive reminders that all we need is faith, fortitude, and fearlessness. With each release, Baby Tate provides her fans with potent anthems and inspiring bars, unveiling new facets of her technicolor character in the process.
