"AM to PM" is the debut single recorded by American singer Christina Milian. Written by Milian, Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg, and produced by Bloodshy & Avant, it served as the lead single from her self-titled debut album (2001) and charted well in several countries, becoming a top-five hit in Denmark and the United Kingdom.

Background[edit]

Pushed by Milian's increasing prominence as a VJ on MTV, the single enjoyed worldwide success, reaching the top 10 in Flemish Belgium, Denmark, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, and the United Kingdom. Stateside, it peaked at number 27 on the Billboard Hot 100. Its accompanying music video was directed by Dave Meyers. The song was featured in the comedy The Hot Chick. Milian performed the song on All That in 2002.

The song was also included on the album "Madison Mix" which was released to promote the My Scene dolls.

Music video[edit]

The music video for "AM to PM" was directed by Dave Meyers. It starts with Milian waking up after going to bed that night. She then gets ready to leave the house, and decides to sneak out of the house. She turns off the alarm, hides from her mom, by hanging below the stairs. She stops the dog from barking by throwing him a bone and then exits the house. She grabs her backpack, which she had thrown out from the window in her room, and jumps in the backseat of her friends' car. She and her friends then go to a club, and they are able to skip the line by showing the bouncer a beeper that reads "AM to PM." She and her friends then proceed into the club and start to dance. They all dance and Christina dances on a stage with many background dancers. After Christina and her friends leave, she attempts to sneak back into her house. Her dad is reading the newspaper and the dog is barking again. She sees this and then runs around to enter the house through the backdoor. She sprints to her room and dives into her bed. Her dad checks on her, thinking that she's asleep, and she pretends to be. After he leaves, Christina says "from AM to PM," and the video ends.

Kevin Federline is featured in the main nightclub dance sequence throughout the video.
