"Main Thing" is a song co-written and produced by "Little Louie" Vega and Kenny 'Dope' Gonzales for Swedish Pop singer-songwriter Robyn's second album My Truth. The song was released in 2000 and served as the album's fourth and final single.

"Main Thing" was released as a radio-only single, and no music video was made for the song. Due to lacking promotion, the song caught little attention, and the single failed to chart.

"Main Thing" should not be confused with "Good Thang", which is another song performed by Robyn that she co-wrote and produced with Little Louie Vega and Kenny Dope Gonzales (Masters At Work). While the two songs share similar titles, they are completely different and separate songs. "Good Thang" was only released on promotional 12" singles and was never a full single release. "Main Thing" is included on Robyn's album "My Truth" and was also released officially as a single from that album.
