"Move Bitch" (edited version titled "Move B**ch" or simply "Move") is the third official single from rapper Ludacris' album Word of Mouf. The single features Mystikal and I-20. The single reached #10 on the Billboard Hot 100,[1] making it Ludacris's first top ten hit on the chart.

The song is also featured in episode 2 of series one of British teen comedy/drama Skins. The song was also used by World Wrestling Entertainment superstar Montel Vontavious Porter during his short stint in Ring of Honor. It was also used for April Hunter in various Independent circuits. It was featured in the movie ATL starring T.I., and Hancock, although in the latter, the clean version was used. A snippet of the song is played during traffic reports on many radio stations, usually carrying an urban/hip-hop format. Retired NBA star and now ESPN analyst Jalen Rose is featured in the music video.

It was featured on British sitcom The Inbetweeners when the characters Jay and Neil took Will on a 'pussy patrol' in Jay's red Nissan Micra.

The song has been covered by rock band Start Trouble, on their album Every Solution Has Its Problem.
