Music video[edit]

The music video for "Creative" shows Jackson performing the song in front of a big band. Also, in the video Jackson is trying to impress a female which features in the video. Throughout the video the female does not pay much attention to Jackson but however towards the end of the video the female seems to pay slight attention to Jackson.

Critical reception[edit]

The BBC said:

  • Creative is a sassy, rumba-rhythmed number where Leon soars above, hinting at his prowess in the boudoir, this is easily the most memorable original track here.[4]
