The video features an appearance by the rapper Nelly playing Ashanti's husband in the video. Ashanti described the video as "reality vs. fantasy vs. pin up. It's basically just saying that to keep your man, you know, you got the good-good, you look sexy, and you're still cleaning the house with your high-heels and your shades and your diamonds! (Laughs)"

The video starts with some scenes shows an ice-cream, a cake, a milk bottle and a drink. Ashanti is then seen and subsequently there are still scenes showing some cookbooks, beer then rapper Nelly, in a courtyard of a house. In the courtyard, Ashanti takes the milk and then she greets Nelly.
