The music video, directed by Vaughan Arnell,[1] takes place at a luxury party. Jay Kay is filmed singing in an elevator with the rest of Jamiroquai. Then, they perform the song, and at the end of the clip, the crowd were singing the chorus taken from live footage in Argentina. The video starts as a sequel of Cosmic Girl, with Jamiroquai appearing in sports cars, and Kay was driving the same Lamborghini while parking it at the entrance of the party.
