Music videoEdit

The video was aired on Wednesday, December 26, 2007, on BET's Access Granted. The video is the conclusion to "Girlfriend". At the end of the video for "Girlfriend", Bow Wow tells Omarion he was going to take him to the "jump off" spot giving the viewer a hint of the next video. In the beginning Bow Wow and Omarion are in the Aston Martin on their way to the club. When they get to the club, Bow Wow and Omarion go into their signature sign rooms. Bow Wow enters a room with a dog paw, and Omarion enters a room with an O with a crown on it. At the end of the video both Bow Wow and Omarion are trying to get with two girls when their "girlfriends" from the "Girlfriend" video show up and then they leave.

The video includes a cameo appearance from KPWR("POWER 106")/Los Angeles air personality DJ Felli Fel.
