"Hey Ladies" is a song by American hip hop group the Beastie Boys, featured on their album Paul's Boutique. It was the album's only charting single, hitting #36 on the Billboard Hot 100. It is also the first single in history to chart in the Top 20 of both the Billboard Hot Rap Singles and Modern Rock Tracks charts, hitting #10 on the former and #18 on the latter.

The 12" record and CD versions of the single were released as an EP entitled Love American Style.

A music video, in the vein of Saturday Night Fever and the Dolemite series of blaxploitation films, was made for the song.
