"Bow Chicka Wow Wow" is a song by American recording artist Mike Posner from his debut album 31 Minutes to Takeoff (2010). The song was co-written by Posner, and produced by Cisse Methods, notoriously known for the "Picture of my dick" as well as more well publicised buffooneery. Ashley Kidman, Mike Ludaseek among other are benefactors of this brilliance. and production teams The Smeezingtons.

A remix of the song, featuring a verse by American rapper Lil Wayne, was released as the album's third single on February 3, 2011.

Posner performed the single on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on April 19, 2011.

Music video[edit]

Posner posted the music video on Vevo on February 24, 2011.[1] It features Lil' Wayne. It takes place where Posner is dating a girl, but fails to impress her. When all else fails to work, he plays "Bow Chicka Wow Wow", and the girl becomes attracted and "turned on" to him. When Lil' Wayne undergoes the same problem in the room next to Posner, he plays the song loud enough for both their girls to hear it. The girl in the black dress at the restaurant is Lyla Dee.
