Music video

In the music video, directed by Erik White, Brown sees a girl that catches his attention. He then follows the girls while dancing. After arriving at a basketball court, he begins to dance with two other guys. Brown then gets inside a car with the girl and sings to her as she tries to make out with him. He then gives her his phone number. He soon dances on a car and at the end of the video he beings to dance with a crowd of people. The video features the first verse of "Gimme That" at the end. Lil' JJ, Trey Songz, and DeRay Davis make cameo appearances in the video. The video made a reference to Michael Jackson's The Way You Make Me Feel.
