Music video[edit]

The music video was rarely seen (although it was shown on Nickelodeon and is on YouTube), and was not featured on any release. It features Carter and her boyfriend throughout the video, in an animated scene with bright colors. It was directed by Gregory Dark.

In November 2006, according to Stylus Magazine, Carter never wanted to record her debut album, but was pressured by her mother. Stylus Magazine also states that the video cost $350,000 to make.[2]
