The video was released in March 1999. It starts out with Sammie singing inside a locker and then hanging out with friends singing on the school front steps. It then features a dance scene which is inside of Sammie's locker and him playing basketball. Afterwards, it shows a load of girls running as in red light, green light as when Sammie turns around. The video ends with Sammie face to face with the girl he was singing about. It features then R&B teen-group "N-Toon" which featured singer Lloyd.
