"Bounce" is a song by German recording artist Sarah Connor, taken from her second studio album, Unbelievable (2002). Written by Bülent Aris, Toni Cottura, and Anthony Freeman, with production helmed by the former, the uptempo pop song samples Mary J. Blige's 2001 song "Family Affair", while featuring guest vocals by Wyclef Jean. "Bounce" was originally released as the album's fourth and final single in Central Europe on 21 July 2003, amid Connor's first pregnancy. It reached the top twenty in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and Walloon Region of Belgium.

In winter 2003 radio programmers Tod Tucker and Matt "the bratt" Derrick at 106.9 K-HITS in Tulsa, Oklahoma took hold of a copy of the single and began to give it airplay. Due to large amounts of airplay in the United States, the song reached number eleven on Billboard's Top 40 Mainstream and number twenty-one on Top 40 Tracks charts, eventually charting on the Billboard Hot 100 at number fifty-four. "Bounce" was officially given a physical US release on 4 May 2004, serving as Connor's debut single there. It was also released in Australia and the United Kingdom, where it reached number 14 on both charts. The radio version of the song was featured on the 2004 compilation album Now That's What I Call Music! 15.
