Music video[edit]

It is Jay Sean's second video after "Dance with You (Nachna Tere Naal)". Its video was debuted on MTV India's First Cut. The song gained a lot of positive reviews from audiences. In Britain, it gained moderate success.

The video features two Jay Seans, one a singer and the other a rapper. Throughout the music video, Jay Sean is depicted with various British Asians (of South Asian origin). It starts with Jay Sean the rapper trying to enter his locked up studio where Rishi Rich and Juggy D are already there. Jay Sean manages to get the door open. Just before he enters his studio room, a British flag and a Pakistani flag are shown adorning the doorknob.[6] He finds that there is another Jay Sean there, the singer. He follows Jay Sean the singer to a party, where Rishi Rich, Juggy D and Madhu Singh, among others, are present. The two Jay Seans eventually face-off against each other in a rap battle where Jay Sean the singer emerges the victor.

The song's chorus samples rapper Cassidy and R. Kelly's song "Hotel (song)".
