"Missing My Baby" is a song released by American Tejano music recording
artist Selena on her third studio album Entre a Mi Mundo (1992). It was
composed by her brother A.B. Quintanilla III, the song's principal
record producer. He wanted to showcase Selena's diverse musical
abilities and to help her cross over into the English-speaking market;
most of the album is Mexican pop and traditional Mexican songs. Critics
praised her emotive enunciation in the song. "Missing My Baby" is a mid-
tempo R&B; ballad influenced by urban and soul music. The lyrics talk
about the narrator's love for her boyfriend and how much she misses him.
Although never intended to be released as a single, the track peaked at
number 22 on the US Rhythmic Top 40 chart in 1995. The track was one of
the first songs to be played by radio stations after Selena was shot and
killed by her friend, the former manager of her boutiques, on March 31,
1995. A posthumous music video made for cable network VH1 was released
in 1998 to promote the triple box-set Anthology (1998).
