Music video[edit]

The music video is directed by Scott Speer and was filmed on the week of September 28, 2009 in Los Angeles, California.[2] The video begins with Tisdale in a black outfit with black wings on her back in a room. Before she sings, there is a metronome moving to the beat of the song and a turntable playing, it also shows her in the same black outfit while walking along a hallway and singing. Then towards the second verse, she is in a light yellow dress and is standing near a wall. Then at the second chorus, she is at a party singing and dancing next to a man. Towards the end of the song she is seen in her light yellow dress standing on a table with people sitting around it. Justin Baldoni and Wesley Quinn make cameos. The video premiered on VIVA Germany on October 5, 2009[6] and on Myspace on October 6, 2009. E! Entertainment said that "Tisdale wants to dance, and not in that G-rated, Disney-fied way, either, in this video. We see her practicing some sexy moves, seductive looks and various hand-to-hair gestures after watching. Fortunately, all that preparation eventually pays off, and she finally makes it onto the dance floor".[7]
