Music Video[edit]

The music video was shot in Los Angeles and it was directed by Antti Jokinen.[12] The video mixes movie clips with a romantic scenario involving the feisty singer and a man from the apartment next door. In order to convey the intensity of the Johnssons performance, the producer created an effect where the loudness of the music seams to cause the furnishings of the mans apartment to slide across the floor. The outside 'apartament' scene was shot at the Nate Starkman & Son building.
