"Miami" is a 1998 single by American rapper Will Smith from his debut solo album Big Willie Style (1997). It samples The Whispers's 1980 hit "And The Beat Goes On." The song charted at number 17 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 3 on the UK charts.

"Miami" won a MTV VMA Best Male Video award. The video, which incorporates the first two verses and refrains of the selection's "radio edit," followed by the third verse and refrain of its "Miami Mix," both listed below, features an early on-screen appearance of Smith's future Hitch co-star, Eva Mendes.
