Norma Sabrina Salerno (born 15 March 1968), also known in her singing career as Sabrina and Sabrina Salerno, is an Italian singer, songwriter, record producer, model, actress, and TV hostess. During her career, she has sold over 20 million records worldwide and scored 

10 international hits, including 3 number ones. Internationally, she is best known for her 1987 single "Boys (Summertime Love)", which topped the charts in France and Switzerland, and peaked at number 3 in the UK. The song was accompanied by a provocative music video, which established Sabrina's image as a sex symbol.

After winning a beauty contest in her native region, Liguria, Sabrina started modelling, and in 1984 made her television debut in the Italian prime time show Premiatissima on Canale 5. In 1986, her debut single "Sexy Girl", sung in English, was released. Produced by Claudio 

Cecchetto, it became a top 20 hit in her native Italy and a modest international success. In late 1987, she released her first album, Sabrina, which was entirely sung in English. In addition to "Sexy Girl", the album included her international breakthrough hit "Boys 

(Summertime Love)" (number 1 in France and Switzerland, and top 5 in over 10 more countries), and "Hot Girl", a top 20 hit in some European countries. "Boys" gained popularity for its famous video, which included sexually suggestive scenes. The song has sold more than 1.5 million copies to date worldwide and remains Sabrina's trademark hit.

In 1988, Sabrina received the "best European singer" award during the Festivalbar event, and enjoyed another European-wide summer hit with the single "All of Me (Boy Oh Boy)", produced by Stock, Aitken & Waterman. Later in that year, her second studio album, Super 

Sabrina, was released, and she maintained her image as a European sex symbol thanks to the raunchy videos that accompanied hits such as "My Chico" (her highest-charting single in Italy) and "Like a Yo-Yo", produced by Giorgio Moroder. The latter became the musical 

theme of Odiens, a very popular Italian prime time TV show, in which Sabrina also appeared. Thanks to the success of her music and sexy image, Sabrina performed in many European countries, among others at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1988 or at the Olympic 

Stadium in Moscow in 1989, where over 3 days 50,000 people gathered to see her perform. In 1989, she starred in the Italian movie Fratelli d'Italia, directed by Neri Parenti, along such actors as Christian De Sica, Jerry Calà, and Massimo Boldi. She also released a new single, "Gringo", to a moderate success, and the second remix album called Super Remix.
