The video for the Chris Carmouche produced track was shot August 18, 2012 in Atlanta. Director Alexi Papalexopoulous explained the concept, stating:
The song has a lot of explicit lyrics in it that portray the male in a domineering light.
In this video, I thought it’d be good to juxtapose that ideology to have the female in the domineering role and the rappers (or men) as submissive.
