"Disco Girl" is the name of a song released by Greek singer Sakis Rouvas on December 17, 2001 by Minos EMI. It was released as a two track CD single with the original song and a remix, both of which were produced by Desmond Child and Phoebus.[1]

The original Greek CD single includes bonus content along with the two versions of the song. When the CD is played on a computer, it features videos, photographs and information on Rouvas's career to date. The bonus content also features clips from the making of the four different "Disco Girl" covers in the Dominican Republic and an exclusive interview with the single's producer, Desmond Child, speaking about the production of Ola Kala and his impressions on the popular Greek musician and their collaboration.

The song was released in France by Universal Music on June 17, 2002 with an English version with lyrics by Andreas Carlsson.[2]

Music video

The music video of the song was directed by French directors Antonin Bonnet and Tanguy Dairaine of the production company Happy Design and was filmed in Cape Town, South Africa.[3] At the start of the video, Rouvas is water skiing and splashes a young woman on the beach with water when he passes. The video then moves to a bar scene before Rouvas jumps from the highest diving board of a pool, and impresses the woman. Scenes of the two spending time together are seen next. When the woman falls asleep, Rouvas steals a large diamond from her safe causing a brief police chase which he escapes from. The video ends with Rouvas joining three women on a speedboat and dropping the diamond into the ocean.
