"Bon, Bon" is a song by American rapper Pitbull from his fifth studio album, Armando. It was released as the album's third official single on August 27, 2010. The single peaked at #61 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #3 on the Billboard Top Latin Songs. It heavily uses portions of the song "We No Speak Americano" by Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP, a hit earlier in the year, but it was later known that the version of "We No Speak Americano" used was a bootleg remix done by DJ Alvaro. Pitbull later gave credit to Alvaro and promised that they were looking forward to making more songs together. It samples the 1956 Italian song "Tu vuò fà l'americano" by Renato Carosone.
