The music video for the song was directed by Matt Alonzo and was filmed in Los Angeles.[1][10] A fifty-two second trailer of the video was premiered on YouTube on 18 March 2011, and showed Justice Crew in a warehouse with appearances by Flo Rida and all-female dance crew, Beat Freaks, from MTV's America's Best Dance Crew.[5] The complete video premiered on Vevo on 4 April.[11]

The video opens in a warehouse, with Flo Rida rapping his verse to the song while Justice Crew dance in the background. The video then shows Justice Crew wearing black clothes and standing in the rain, while Paul and John sing their verses. In between this scene, a dance-battle between Justice Crew and Battle Freaks begins, and reoccurs throughout the whole video.
