The video was directed by Bryan Barber and set in a high-rise apartment building. In the video, each of the two performers already have a significant other. Bow Wow lives one floor above Ciara and they are infatuated with each other. While in the process of getting ready to meet their respective dates, they rap and sing to each other and have a sequence of talking to each other on the phone. Bow Wow and Ciara encounter each other on the elevator while leaving their apartments and they have an imaginary moment on the elevator. When the elevator reaches the lobby, they go outside to meet their significant others; never acting upon the moment. Screenwriter Mark Brown plays the valet in the video.
