"Chica Bomb" is a song co-written and recorded by the Moldovan dance musician Dan Bălan featuring uncredited vocals from American recording artist Katie DiCicco. It was released in April 2010 as his second single.

Reception[edit]

Nick Levine of Digital Spy gave the song a positive review stating:

It's by the guy behind T.I. and RiRi's favourite Eurodance smash, it's got a video that could accurately be subtitled "Jiggly Sweaty Boobs", and its title is a cringey slither of Spanglish that translates as "Young Girl Bomb". However, like a fondue made with Tesco Value mild cheddar, this isn't as cheesy as it should be.

In fact, "Chica Bomb" is a sleek and reasonably sexy electro-house track with a nice bit of synthy bounce to it. It's not terribly original, of course, and the lyrics aren't worth cutting and pasting, but fair's fair; the hook doesn't miss explosive by much. The result? David Guetta may not have anything to worry about, but Britain's irked clubbers certainly do.3/5 stars[1]

Following the official music video's release in 2010, a remix of the song with Balan and his vocals removed titled "Chica Boom (Females Only)" was produced, receiving almost 1.9 million views.[2]
