"Own The Night" is a song performed by Chaka Khan, recorded exclusively for Miami Vice in 1985. The song appeared on the first Miami Vice soundtrack and was used in the episode "Buddies".


  • The song was recorded exclusively for Miami Vice and, other than on the soundtrack album Miami Vice, has not appeared on any other albums. It was, however, released as a single.
  • This was one of two songs Chaka Khan released in 1985 not tied into her album I Feel For You. The other was "(Krush Groove) Can't Stop The Street" from the movie Krush Groove.
  • This is the third song from a Miami Vice soundtrack album (songs that were also recorded specially for the show) to hit the Billboard Hot 100, and the only one that didn't reach the Top 40.
