"Bon, Bon" is a song by American rapper Pitbull from his fifth studio album, Armando. It was released as the album's third official single on October 25, 2010. The single peaked at #61 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #3 on the Billboard Top Latin Songs. It uses portions of the dance tune "We No Speak Americano" by Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP, but it was later known that this version of We No Speak Americano was a Rework done by Almere's DJ Alvaro. Pitbull later gave credit to Alvaro and promised that they were looking forward to making bangers together. It samples the 1956 Italian song "Tu vuò fà l'americano" by Renato Carosone.
