"Toma" is the fourth single from rapper Pitbull's debut album M.I.A.M.I.. It features Lil Jon. It reached as far as #21 in Hot Rap Tracks and #73 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks.

On several occasions, the song has been heavily edited to make it "radio-friendly". Some versions remove the English profanity in the song, while keeping the Spanish sexually-explicit verse, saying, "Si tu quiere que te coma toda", which if translated, means to "if you want me to eat you up", a reference to cunnilingus. On other versions, the whole song is "clean", removing all explicit verses.

The song was also featured in the 2006 films Step Up and Date Movie.

Remix[edit]

An official remix features various dancehall artists as Mr. Vegas, Wayne Marshall, Red Rat, T.O.K., and Kardinal Offishall, appearing in Pitbull's remix album Money Is Still a Major Issue. An unofficial remix features Nina Sky with the beat sampled from "Conga" by Gloria Estefan on a mixtape.
