"Ring My Bell" is a 1979 popular disco song by Anita Ward. Originally written for Stacy Lattisaw, when she signed with a different label, Ward was asked to sing it instead and it became her only major hit. [1] The song hit number one on the disco charts.[2] "Ring My Bell" went to number one on both the Billboard Hot 100, and soul singles chart. [3]. It also reached number one on the UK Singles Chart.

"Ring My Bell" has been covered by many artists since its original release, including Ann Lee, DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince, Tori Amos, Blood Sisters, Dynamic Duo, D'Flow Production Squad, Collette, Saïan Supa Crew, INOJ, Pato Fu and Joey Boy.
