"Baila morena" is a song recorded in 2001 by the Italian singer Zucchero. The song was released as a single twice : first in 2001 (under the title "Baila (Sexy Thing)"), reaching #1 in Italy and Spain, but achieving a moderate success in the other countries, then in 2006 as a duet with the Mexican rock band Maná, as the soundtrack of the film Les Bronzés 3 : Amis pour la vie (English : French Fried Vacation 3 - Friends Forever), becoming this time a huge hit in France and Belgium.

On February 2, 2006, the single entered the French Singles Chart at #64, then jumped straight to #1, which is the third biggest jump to number-one in this country. After four weeks at #1,[1] the singles dropped almost every week on the chart, totaling ten weeks in the top ten, 17 in the top 50 and 28 in the top 100.[2] It was the 9th best-selling of the year,[3] charting for 28 weeks with total sales of 294,000 copies,[4] and was certified Gold by the SNEP.[5] As of July 2014, it is the 103rd best-selling single of the 21st century in France, with 299,000 units sold.[citation needed]

In 2007, the song was covered by Patrick Fiori and Hélène Ségara and included in a medley available on Les Enfoirés' album La Caravane des Enfoirés.
