"Who's That Girl" is a song by Swedish pop singer Robyn, written and composed by herself and brother-and-sister production duo The Knife for her self-titled fourth studio album (2005). The track was released as the album's second single in Scandinavia in 2005 (see 2005 in music) and fifth UK single on April 28, 2008 (see 2008 in music).

The track became a minor success on the charts, peaking at number thirty-seven on the Swedish Singles Chart, where it was the third biggest hit from the Robyn album there.[1] In the UK, where the single featured remixes by Seamus Haji, Rex the Dog, and Drop the Lime,[2] "Who's That Girl" reached number twenty-six on the UK Singles Chart.[1]

The song was recorded by Yelle as "Qui est cette fille?" as part of the iTunes Foreign Exchange, where Robyn recorded "À cause des garçons" as "Because of Boys".
