  • The music video was directed by Christian Larson and shows a videotape being made of a couple's vacation, with some shots of Tinie Tempah and Swedish House Mafia performing. Larson told Spinner UK about the clip: "The video is shot in a documentary style, with Tinie Tempah being the storyteller of a relationship from 'Miami 2 Ibiza.' The idea was get the feel of a slightly illicit stolen videotape from a couple's vacation. The video was shot chronologically and the shoot started in Miami, and ends with actual footage of Swedish House Mafia playing live in Ibiza. 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."
