The Music Video
The video features Sweat as a homicide detective pursuing a female suspect that assassinated a police commissioner.
The video follows the following screenplay:
Sweat is at a royal party that is interrupted by an unidentified killer shooting a member of royalty and the killer steals diamonds from the man that is shot.
The killer escapes and is revealed to be a woman
Keith captures her and she escapes from his car
The woman, now on the run, is cornered while climbing up a ladder
Keith is called onto the scene and commands that no one is to shoot
A police officer shoots the woman and she is left dangling from the ladder
