Shanell described the concept of the song's music video as a combination of "Smooth Criminal
" and the movies Sin City
and Kill Bill
. "As a writer, there's a picture in my head and I'm basically writing a story to the pictures that flash in my head," she explained to MTV News. "So I always had the visual for the video in my head. But once we got Nicki on it, I thought, Oh, [those three as a mix would work]."
