Music video[edit]

Two music videos were made for the song. The first version was shot in black and white with the members getting out of a car and then walks to an empty warehouse and they start singing. The more popular version version was shot in color featuring the 98 Degrees members in a party with people dancing, some scenes show the members sitting on a couch while singing and some alternate shots featuring each member on what appears to be an apartment footbridge. The video was released on June 16, 2009. As of 11 October 2018, the video has received over 5 million views.
