This Day in 1999, The Vengaboys went to No.1 on the UK singles chart with 'We're Going To Ibiza!'
Vengaboys�were a�Eurodance�pop group�based in�Amsterdam. The brainchild of two Dutch producers�Wessel van Diepen�and Dennis van den Driesschen (Danski and Delmundo), they enjoyed commercial success in the late 1990s. They are best known for their two�UK�number one�singles, "Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom!!" and "We're Going to Ibiza" and their�U.S.�Top 40�hit, "We Like to Party". The group consists of lead vocalist Kim Sasabone, vocalist Denise Post-Van Rijswijk and the male dancers Robin Pors and JJ van Zon. They have sold an estimated 15 million records worldwide�and are renowned for being one of the most influential Eurodance pop groups of the early 21st century. On 2 May 2001, The�World Music Awards�awarded Vengaboys with the award for best selling dance group of the year.
"We're Going to�Ibiza" is the title of a song by Dutch�Eurodance�group the�Vengaboys. It was released in August 1999 as the sixth and final single from�The Party Album. The song was one of the Vengaboys' most successful singles. The song was based on�Typically Tropical's 1975 number one hit "Barbados," with modified lyrics. While "Boom Boom Boom Boom" was still on the UK chart, "We're Going to Ibiza" reached number one on theUK Singles Chart, as the previous single had also done.
The song is infamous for the mis-pronunciation of "Ibiza" by the vocalists in the title line.�However the pronunciation used in the song is very common in�Dutch.
The video features the members of the Vengaboys, depicted as animated characters, traveling to�Ibiza�while passing by many places including Rome and Moscow. The opening scene is at�Toronto's�city hall. Incidentally, in the video the Washington D.C. snapshot showcases the�Clinton-Lewinsky Incident. It can be found 1:40 into the video, and lasts for about 4 seconds.
