Music video[edit]

The music video, directed by Mark Seliger and Fred Woodward, was shot from October 6–7, 1998. It is set in the Bahamas, where his mother, Roxie Roker hailed. It visually expanded the reggae influence of the song. Kravitz was filmed singing and dancing among the people, also walking and biking along the streets. Another scene from the video features Kravitz singing while submerged up to his stomach in the ocean. It should be also noted that Kravitz departed from his signature dreadlocks with this video.

Personnel[edit]

All instruments and vocals performed by Lenny Kravitz, except the toy piano, performed by Terry Manning.

The Flunky in the Attic Mix was mixed by Billy Corgan, lead singer of The Smashing Pumpkins.
