"Maria" is a song by the American band Blondie, taken from their 1999 album No Exit. This song was Blondie's comeback single, their first since "War Child" in July 1982. In the UK, it was the band's sixth no.1 single, topping the charts exactly 20 years after their first UK no.1 "Heart of Glass" in 1979. The song was written by the band's keyboardist Jimmy Destri, who had also penned some of their earlier hits such as "Atomic". In the US, the single peaked at #82 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

In the UK the single was released as a 2 CD set, the first containing remixes of "Maria", and the second containing live versions of "Screaming Skin" (a track from their "No Exit" album) and their very first hit single "In the Flesh".

The song's lyrics speak of a beautiful but stubborn Hispanic girl named Maria who is desired by many people who can't win her affection because of her self-guarded nature.

The line " a millionaire/walking on imported air" was used in a previous Blondie song, "Walk Like Me" (also written by Destri), from the album Autoamerican (1980).
