A video of a baby’s emotional reaction to her mother singing to her is the latest YouTube sensation with millions of views in less than two weeks.

ABC News reports that the video[1] — which was recorded Aug. 1 and uploaded Oct. 18 — shows a young baby girl going through a range of emotions as her mother sings to her. 10-month-old Marie-Lynne Leroux looks up as her mommy sings Rod Stewart’s ‘My Heart Can’t Tell You No’ and the baby’s tears fill up with joy as she smiles before she starts crying.

Her mother then tells her daughter that it’s just a song and says “OK, mommy’s done. OK, it’s just a song. It’s just a song, honey.” Marie-Lynne’s mother said that she sings a lot of songs to her daughter but it’s the Rod Stewart classic that always gets her for some reason.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the video[2] has over 4.9 million views on YouTube.
