This term "Item" is a derogatory term used in Mumbaiya language for a good looking girl and hence the term "Item Song"
This has no relevance in English language.

An item number or an item song, (Hindi: ) in Indian cinema, is a musical performance that has little to do with the film in which it appears, but is presented to showcase beautiful dancing women in revealing clothes, to lend support to the marketability of the film.[1] The term is commonly used in connection with Hindi, Kannada, Tamil and Telugu cinema, to describe a catchy, upbeat, often sexually provocative dance sequence for a song in a movie
