"Gringo" is a song by Italian singer Sabrina. It was produced by Giampiero Menzione. The song was released as a non-album single in July 1989. It was a minor hit in UK, where it peaked at number 95.

Song information[edit]

"Gringo" was in many ways the official successor to 1988's "My Chico". Again written by Sabrina herself and Elvio Moratto, the song followed the format of "My Chico" quite, but not too, closely. What sets it apart from its predecessor is the bizarre 'western'-theme Sabrina chose for the song itself as well as for its presentation in TV-shows and packaging. Outside Italy, "Gringo" was licensed to the huge international BMG record-company, which made sure the song was released in many countries and formats.
