"Mi Chico Latino" (English: "My Latin Boy"), is a song by English singer-songwriter Geri Halliwell. It was released on 16 August 1999 as the second single from Halliwell's debut solo album Schizophonic. The single identifies her maternal Spanish background, as the song has a number of Spanish lyrics. The music video was directed by Doug Nichol and filmed between 5 and 8 July 1999 in Sardinia, wearing a black bikini in the music video. To promote the single, Halliwell performed the song on Top of the Pops, Wetten Dass, Party in the Park, Much Music, Patrice Lecuyer Show, Hey, Hey It's Saturday, Musica Si and Club Disney.

Chart performance[edit]

"Mi Chico Latino" was more successful and had more promotion than Halliwell's debut single "Look at Me". The single peaked at number one in the UK Singles Chart in August 1999 for one week, becoming Halliwell's first number-one solo single in the country.[1] Being first in a sequence of four consecutive Geri Halliwell singles reaching number one in the United Kingdom, the single went on to sell almost 375,967 copies in Britain and was certified Gold.[2]
