"That's My Girl" is a song recorded by American girl group Fifth Harmony. It was released and serviced to contemporary hit radio on September 27, 2016, through Epic Records and Syco Music as the third and final single from the group's second studio album, 7/27 (2016) as the opening track. The song was written by Tinashe Kachingwe, Alexander Kronlund, and Lukas Loules, with production handled by Kronlund and Loules. "That's My Girl" is mainly an R&B anthemic track with elements of electro-pop and lyrical themes focused on female empowerment, encouragement and feminist influences. Several critics noted similarities from the group's previous singles, which also feature an indistinguishable militaristic production.

The accompanying music video was directed by Hannah Lux Davis and released on September 19, 2016. The dystopian clip follows the group around an apocalyptic setting where they perform choreographed dance routines and save people trapped around a village dressed in white-colored outfits, inspired by the film Mad Max. The group performed the track on national television for the first time at the 2016 American Music Awards. It received promotion in commercials for the 2016 Summer Olympics, which featured the United States Gymnastics team. A remixes extended play was released two months after its initial release. This is also the last single released by the group as a quintet following the departure of Camila Cabello in December 2016 to pursue a solo career.
