"Bojangles" is a song by American rapper Pitbull. It was released in May 2006 as the lead single from his album El Mariel. It was produced by Lil Jon. The remix features Lil Jon and the Ying Yang Twins. It featured a controversial video featuring the Ying Yang Twins and Lil Jon.


The meaning of Bojangles is a female with a big chest, nice legs, and nice arms; taking its definition from a line by one of the Ying Yang Twins, "a Bojangles is a girl with breast, legs and wings", in turn taking the name from the fast food chain Bojangles' Famous Chicken 'n Biscuits.[citation needed] Pitbull also references Jay-Z's 1996 album Reasonable Doubt in the song.
