"Shoulda Woulda Coulda" is a song by Beverley Knight, released as the second single from her album Who I Am. Written about the breakup of her long-term relationship because she decided to put her career first, it became her first top-10 single in the United Kingdom. It remains her most recognisable hit.[citation needed] Its airplay success propelled Who I Am into the top 10 on the UK album charts.

The video was shot in the Hout Bay area of Cape Town, South Africa, and directed by Douglas Avery.

The location for the video was of special significance to Knight. She had visited previously in connection with her charity work in bringing awareness to HIV in South Africa. It was also the location of the video to her single "No Man's Land", released in 2007.
