"Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You)" is a song by American singer Christina Aguilera from her 1999 debut album. Released on July 11, 2000, by RCA Records as the fourth and final single from the album, it was the first song over which Aguilera was given significant creative control. The song was written by Johan Åberg and Paul Rein, with Christina Aguilera, Ron Fair, C. Blackmon, R. Cham, E. Dawkins, Shelly Peiken, and Guy Roche contributing to a re-recorded version. Lyrically, it sees Aguilera eyeing a prospective boyfriend.
Upon its release, "Come on Over Baby (All I Want Is You)" achieved international commercial success. It became Aguilera's third single to peak at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100, also reaching the top ten in several countries including Australia and the United Kingdom. The song's accompanying music video saw Aguilera experiment with her styling, beginning an evolution of image reinventions seen in the ensuing years of her career. Later in 2000, a Spanish-language version of the song was adapted by Rudy Pérez titled "Ven Conmigo (Solamente Tú)" which was recorded for Aguilera's second studio album, Mi Reflejo . "Ven Conmigo (Solamente Tú)" was released on August 8, 2000, to Latin radio stations in the United States. The song was featured in the videogame Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball .
Like "What a Girl Wants" (the second single from Christina Aguilera), a new remixed and re-recorded version of "Come on Over Baby (All I Want Is You)" was released as a single rather than the original album version. The album version, which had been known simply as "Come on Over (All I Want Is You)", was seen as unsuitable for single release.
The single version of "Come on Over (All I Want Is You)" was transformed into "Come on Over Baby (All I Want Is You)" with new and more sexual lyrics, a chord progression for the song's b-section, a bridge, a "rap" from Aguilera, a new mid-song dance breakdown, and more powerful vocals by Aguilera were also added. The song also features limited new elements from Guy Roche and Shelly Peiken. The original album version has no bridge, so it had previously been performed live with an interlude that sampled the disco song "Got to Be Real" by Cheryl Lynn. However, when the original songwriters of "Got to Be Real" were contacted for permission to sample their song, they denied clearance. Instead, Aguilera's team substituted a reference to "What a Girl Wants": "You give me, what a girl feels, what a girl likes, what a girl needs, what a girl wants". Aguilera helped write the song's controversial and slightly sexual rap section from the re-recorded version. This rap (and also a section in the second verse in which Aguilera discusses sexuality and a man's hands on her body) caused Radio Disney to ban the song initially, as it had done with "Genie in a Bottle". The original album version of the song, "Come on Over (All I Want Is You)", was allowed to be played, and an edited version of "Come on Over Baby", which removed the second verse and the rap, was also given some airplay. Reportedly, the edited single version received more airplay on the station than the album version of the song.
"Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You)" is written in the key of E♭ major with a tempo of 119 beats per minute in common time. The song follows a chord progression of E♭ – E♭/G – A♭ – B♭, and Aguilera's vocals span from B♭3 to B♭4.
Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic highlighted the English version on the singer's self-titled album.Billboard's Mia Nazareno called the song a "Radio Disney-approved bop" and complimented its "addictive", "danceable" sound. In December 2000, Kai R. Lofthus of Music & Media ranked it as one of the five best songs of the year.
CDNow senior editor Eliseo Cardona wrote about Spanish version: "Indeed, the overly literal Spanish lyrics make for both a good laugh and a better yawn. This point is unwittingly made on 'Ven conmigo (Solamente tú),' the translation of 'Come on Over (All I Want Is You)'. If Spanish pop seems to make no sense at times, then this takes nonsense to the next level."A complete opposite opinion came from Wall of Sound editor Kurt B. Reighley; to him it sounds "especially sassy en Español." Parry Gettelman of Orlando Sentinel praised the vocals calling them "out-of-my-way." Sun-Sentinel music writer Sean Piccoli wrote: "Ven Conmigo (Come with Me) borrows its bounce from the better Whitney–Mariah numbers." In August 2020, Billboard named the song one of the "best 2000's Latin hits".
"Come on Over Baby (All I Want Is You)" became Aguilera's third number-one hit on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, and was certified Gold by RIAA for physical sales in excess of 500,000 units. It spent twenty-one weeks on the Hot 100, four of which were atop the chart, and ranked thirty-eighth on the Hot 100's 2000 year-end charts. The Spanish-language version of the single, "Ven Conmigo (Solamente Tú)", sticking to the original arrangement, was also a huge Latin music success, becoming Aguilera's first number-one single on Billboard's Hot Latin Tracks chart. After receiving a strong push from the record label and Aguilera herself, the single became a big hit for Aguilera,Not only did the single hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and had stronger airplay than the previous single, but the video also became Aguilera's most popular video to date, becoming a huge #1 hit on TRL and receiving strong airplay on MTV, VH1, and even Disney and Nickelodeon.
"Come on Over Baby (All I Want Is You)" reached the top ten in the UK, Japan and Australia and the top twenty in Canada, but was less successful in Continental Europe, reaching the top forty in most markets. The single became yet another international success for Aguilera, reaching #2 in New Zealand, where it stayed on the charts for 13 weeks. The single was also certified Platinum in Australia."Come on Over" stayed at #1 on Billboard for four weeks, and stayed on the Australian charts for 20 weeks.
Directed by Paul Hunter and choreographed by Tina Landon, the music video begins with Aguilera talking on the phone with her boyfriend, telling him to come over to her house. After she hangs up the phone, the scene breaks out into Aguilera wearing a white crop top and white pants, with red streaks in her hair. In the next scene, Aguilera has loose braided pigtails, a blue crop top, and blue and white checkered pants. She is in her bedroom, when suddenly she and her backup dancers begin dancing in front of a white background. The male dancers come out, and begin dancing with the female dancers. After that, Aguilera and her then-real life boyfriend Jorge Santos dance together with her backup dancers in the scene where everyone is wearing yellow and green outfits, first in a yellow-green background followed by a yellow-orange background. The next scene is where her dancers dance on chairs in white open-faced cubes, intercut with Aguilera singing in a blue-walled background and a white drapery background. Aguilera and her backup dancers then dance in front of a white background. It cuts into a scene where Aguilera walks down a flight of steps in a red room, with her backup dancers on each step. They begin dancing again, and Aguilera's backup dancers hold up pieces of puzzle paper that shows Aguilera's face.
The music video for "Come on Over Baby (All I Want Is You)" was an instant hit, shooting to #1 on TRL . It featured a racier image from Aguilera, quite different from her previous singles, "Genie in a Bottle" and "I Turn to You". Unlike her previous singles, she had red streaks in her hair, and wore tighter clothing. The video was shot from June 12–15, 2000, premiered in late July on MTV's "Making The Video", and was the last music video from her self-titled debut album, Christina Aguilera . The image Aguilera used in "Come on over Baby (All I Want Is You)" was also used for Mi Reflejo and her first headlining tour in 2000. When the music video for "Come on Over Baby (All I Want Is You)" aired on Disney Channel, some scenes were edited out and some of the sexual lyrics were censored. A second version of the video was released too for the Spanish version of the song; Ven Conmigo (Solamente Tú). In this version most scenes of the first version choreography can be seen, but Aguilera appears singing next to a red chair.
Aguilera performed "Come on Over Baby" in her tour Christina Aguilera: Live in Concert, an acoustic version on the Stripped World Tour, and a jazz version on the Back to Basics Tour. In the second leg of her "Christina Aguilera: In Concert", where she visited Puerto Rico, México, Venezuela, Panama and Japan, she replaced the song for the Spanish version of it "Ven Conmigo (Solamente Tú)". She also performed this version and "Pero Me Acuerdo de Ti" in Mexican comedy and variety show Otro Rollo .Aguilera performed "Come on Over Baby (All I Want is You)" at the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards on September 7, 2000. She wore a striking red tight outfit, with black streaks in her hair previous to how she wore them in her music video, red high heels, and a tight ruby red crop top. At the end of Aguilera's performance, Fred Durst walked onstage and performed part of his band's song "Livin' It Up" with Aguilera. During the ceremony, Aguilera wore a revealing black outfit with black heels. After eliciting charged reactions from his fans, Durst stated: "I already told you guys before, I did it all for the nookie, man". The feud died weeks later. Aguilera denied Durst's statement, saying Durst "got no nookie".
In 2000, Aguilera performed the Spanish version of the song "Ven Conmigo (Solamente Tú)" in the Telecinco's teen series Al salir de clase , where she also portrayed herself.

México ; the performance was viewed by around ten thousand spectators.In the Peruvian show Yo Soy contestant Katherine Vega covered the song personifying Aguilera.
