"The Big Bang" music video featured Miley Cyrus and Kevin Zegers and currently has more than 27.7 million views on YouTube. Rock Mafia were reportedly in talks with potential writers and producers to bring the music video for "The Big Bang" to the big screens as a feature film, with Armato revealing on her Twitter that she had been meeting with Tish Cyrus (Miley Cyrus' mother) and Jennifer Todd (producer of Alice in Wonderland and Memento) to work on creating the movie."The Big Bang" is featured on the video game FIFA 12, which launched in September 2011, and their song "Fly or Die" is part of the soundtrack in FIFA 13. Their song "I Am" featuring Wyclef Jean, Bill Kaulitz and David Correy featured as soundtrack on EA Sports game, FIFA 14.
Rock Mafia scored a hit in Europe with Aura Dione's hit single "Friends," a song written and produced together with David Jost. A clip showing Miley Cyrus recording vocals over the "Pimps and Hos" track, which has now been renamed to "Morning Sun," has been posted online.
