The music video was filmed in several locations in Miami and directed by Gil Green and DJ Khaled. It also featured cameo appearances from Timbaland, Ace Hood, Lil Terio and others. Jay-Z does not physically appear in the video, but his verse still does. Khaled addressed this saying, “You know, Jay Z really don’t shoot that many videos. He aint never say yes and he aint never say no. But if you notice the records he do get on, he don’t shoot that many videos. He don’t really shoot that many videos for himself. I was grateful to have the verse and the opportunity to work with somebody I’m inspired by and look up to. Just to get him on the record was a major accomplishment”

The music video premiered in late June 2014, on DJ Khaled’s official YouTube VEVO channel.

The song’s production was handled by OVO Sound’s Mike Zombie. The song has since reached a peak of number 30 on the US Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
