"Femme Like U (Donne-moi ton corps)" is a 2004 song recorded by Canadian artist Cyril Kamar, better known under the name of K.Maro. The song was released as the first single from his album La Good Life, on June 18, 2004. It achieved a huge success in many countries in Europe, including France, Belgium and Switzerland, where it topped their charts, being thus one of the summer hits.

This debut single is generally considered as K. Maro's signature song, although he has had other hits in Europe, such as "Crazy" or "Sous l'œil de l'ange", but which were less successful than "Femme Like U (Donne-moi ton corps)". The song is known under its short title, "Femme Like U", but the complete title is "Femme Like U (Donne-moi ton corps)", as it features in small letters on the single cover.

Although the lyrics are in French-language, they also contain several words in English throughout the song.

In the music video, K. Maro meets a woman while he comes down from his car. Then they have dinner together during a reception, but K. Maro has an altercation with the womans former boyfriend. These scenes alternate with those of K. Maro performing the song.

In 2005, "Femme Like U" won a NRJ Music Awards in the category 'Francophone song of the year'. The single sold more than 1,500,000 units in Europe, making it K. Maro's most successful song.
