Music video[edit]

The budget for the video was $300,000 and was shot in California. In the video Brooke does a work-out/dance routine in a gym with a jump rope. Later, she goes to a club and dances along with her backup dancers. The video ends in the club with a dance competition between Brooke's "crew" and a rival crew. In some scenes she is seen wearing rhinestone-encrusted sunglasses, a pair of grills given to her by Paul Wall for her 18th birthday.[1] She also is depicted in a nightclub and has a dance-off with other girls.

The video premiered on Hogan Knows Best on June 25, 2006. The music video also premiered on Total Request Live on July 24, 2006 as a PRE-RL. Later on, WWE Raw premiered the video.

A snippet of this video was seen on The Soup weeks later, infamously mocking the lyrics "I'm just trying to live, but you're all up in my grill...".
