Music video[edit]

The music video starts with an appearance by Diddy dressed in black. The camera then switches to the guys walking into a room to find a note left by Diddy on top of 5 black notebooks. They have to write lyrics to a song that they would be recording. As their turns come up each one has a setting with a beautiful model either in a luxurious bedroom or living room. The video also includes choreography with all members dressed in black. As the song comes to an end they finish their lyrics, close their notebooks, smile, get up, and walk out with their notbeooks in hand. While walking out to the right of the door there is a calendar set to August. The camera zooms in on the 26th circling it with "Got Me Going" written on that date.

The video, which was directed by Syndrome,[citation needed] premiered on BET's 106 & Park on March 24, 2008, the day before the album's release. The video debuted on 106 & Park on April 3, 2008 at the tenth position and bested at the third position.

The video features ad-libs by Qwanell that is not in early versions found on file sharing networks.
