"Miami 2 Ibiza" is a collaborative single by the Swedish House Mafia and British rapper Tinie Tempah. It was released in the United Kingdom on October 4, 2010, exclusively by Polydor Records. The song serves as the official second single from the House Mafia's album, Until One. The song also features on Tempah's debut album, Disc-Overy, though it is not an official single from his album. In January 2011, the single was certified Gold in Australia.

Critical reception[edit]

Nick Levine of Digital Spy gave the song a somewhat positive review stating:

"Urban British pop and commercial European dance are now such comfortable bedfellows that this collaboration between a trio of Scando knob-twiddling types and the best thing to come out of Plumstead since Shampoo barely raises a brow. Up next: Basshunter ft. Ms Dynamite? However, just because the two genres are comfortable bedfellows doesn't mean the earth moves every time they do the dirty. Tinie Tempah steers 'Miami 2 Ibiza' towards its big whooshy bridge and trancey arms-in-the-air chorus with his customary lyrical flair, but the result still feels like the musical equivalent of the Cam 'n' Cleggy coalition. You couldn't accuse it of being ineffective, but you wouldn't say it works entirely seamlessly either. 3/5 stars[1]

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Christian Larson and was uploaded to YouTube on October 1, 2010. The video shows a videotape being made of a couple's vacation, with some shots of Tinie Tempah and the Swedish House Mafia performing. The video was shot chronologically and the shoot started in Miami. Larson said: "The video is also meant to depict a kind of powerful independent woman, someone who takes from life what they want and does what they want."[2] It has received over 60 million hits on YouTube. Most of the video is set on one woman and follows her around with a video camera on a journey from Miami in Florida to Ibiza in Spain.
