"Ready 2 Go" is a song performed by French DJ and record producer Martin Solveig from his fifth studio album, Smash (2011). It features vocals from English singer Kele Okereke. The dubstep-influenced song was released as the album's second single on 28 March 2011. It has so far peaked to number 20 on the French Singles Chart. It is a secondary theme song of the 2011 Copa América tournament.[1] The song has been featured in the episode "Disturbing Behavior" of The Vampire Diaries [2] and on its sister show The Secret Circle in the episode "Masked".[3] The Hardwell remix of the song was used for the Iceland sponsorship advert for the 2011 series of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!.

Music video[edit]

The music video for the song was uploaded to YouTube on 4 May 2011. The entire 11-minute music video was shot in the Stade de France, during half-time of the football match between France and Croatia,[4] with the participation of many of the 80,000 fans in the stadium. In the video, Solveig comes into the stadium with a majorette, sings on the tape "Ready 2 Go", then begins to dance. Later, he runs around the stadium and fans in the stands brandish square papers of different colors to form the words "Ready to Go".[5]
