Music videoEdit

The music video for "Tell Me" was directed by Nigel Dick and shot on 10 and 11 July 2000. It starts with Brown putting a disc into a CD player. As the music starts she walks down an alley where a crowd gathers and they all perform a synchronized dance as the chorus starts. As the video progresses, it shows Melanie in many different settings, and as the song starts to fade she is seen sitting where the first dance took place staring off-camera.
