Eve stated that she wanted the scenes in the video to be colorful. Swizz Beatz and Ya Boy make cameos in the video. The video starts off with four maids dancing and knocking on Eve's door. Upon entering, they begin to shower Eve with things, which she rejects, then they start dancing while imitating a tambourine. Then the video cuts to Eve tanning and getting ready for a party. Throughout the video, Swizz Beatz are seen as cameos. Then Eve gets into a car driven by Swizz Beats and they both drive to a party where there is dancing and a female spitting out beer.
