"I Love My Bitch" (known as "I Love My Chick" in its edited version) is a song by Busta Rhymes featuring will.i.am (who also produced the track) and Kelis, released as the second single from Busta Rhymes' seventh studio album, The Big Bang (2006).

The release date for the single in the United Kingdom was July 10, 2006. However, due to the UK chart rules allowing songs to chart on download sales alone, one week before the single's physical release, it was Busta Rhymes' second consecutive hit to make the top 40, entering at number 23 on download sales only, the same position that "Touch It" had charted at. Upon its physical release, the single became his second consecutive top ten solo hit, peaking at number eight there, two positions lower than "Touch It" had charted.

About the failure of the song, Busta Rhymes said: "The only thing I probably would have changed is I Love My Chick would not have been on that album. I probably would have put I Love My Chick” on another album that it would have been more appropriate for."

Music video[edit]

The music video "I Love My Chick" is based on the film Mr. & Mrs. Smith, directed by Benny Boom. Busta Rhymes (aka Trevor Smith) plays Mr. Smith and Gabrielle Union plays Mrs. Smith. will.i.am and Dr. Dre also appear in the video, but for unknown reasons, Kelis does not. It reached number one on BET's 106 & Park.
