"Hot Girl" is an Italo disco/pop song by Italian singer Sabrina. The single was released by Baby Records in November 1987 as the album's fourth and final single. [1] The B-side "Kiss Me" also appeared on her debut album. The song was a success in France, Switzerland, Germany and the Netherlands where it was a top 20 hit.

Italo disco is a music genre which originated in Italy and was mainly produced from the late 1970s to the late 1980s. Italo disco evolved from the then-current underground dance, pop, and electronic music, both domestic and foreign and developed into a diverse genre. The genre employs drum machines, synthesizers, and occasionally vocoders. It is usually sung in English, and to a lesser extent in Italian and Spanish.

Pop music is a genre of popular music that originated in its modern form in the United States and United Kingdom during the mid-1950s. The terms "popular music" and "pop music" are often used interchangeably, although the former describes all music that is popular and includes many diverse styles. "Pop" and "rock" were roughly synonymous terms until the late 1960s, when they became increasingly differentiated from each other.

Italy European country

Italy, officially the Italian Republic, is a European country located in Southern Europe consisting of a peninsula delimited by the Alps and surrounded by several islands. Located in the middle of the Mediterranean sea and traversed along its length by the Apennines, Italy has a largely temperate seasonal climate including Mediterranean and Alpine zones. The country covers a total area of 301,340 km2 (116,350 sq mi), and land area of 294,140 km2 (113,570 sq mi), and shares open land borders with France, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, and the enclaved microstates of Vatican City and San Marino. Italy has a territorial exclave in Switzerland (Campione) and a maritime exclave in the Tunisian Sea (Lampedusa). With around 60 million inhabitants, Italy is the fourth-most populous member state of the European Union.

Song information

After the enormous success with "Boys (Summertime Love)", the team around Sabrina's manager Menzione tried to score another international hit with a new single. They chose "Hot Girl", a song from Sabrina's by-then-released first album, and had it remixed for the single release. But, as things go, it's hard to plan success, and so "Hot Girl" did much less well than its predecessor (although Sabrina did everything to promote the new song: In a Spanish TV show, she danced in such an enthusiastic way that her top couldn't contain her breasts any more [2] ).
