The music video opens with a heartwarming scene showing Patoranking bonding with his daughter and is followed up by a scene that shows a colorful and playful kid's party complete with a mountain of gifts, bubbles and even a clown. The artist goes on to show home videos of him and his daughter and continues to record precious moments with her during the party.

It's a heartfelt visual that shows just how much the birth of his daughter has changed his entire perspective. Talking about that defining moment, Patoranking has said that, "Everything changed when I held her in my hands. I remember, I was crying. I've never cried like that for the longest." He added that, "I can't even remember. I was just crying and I held her tight. You know, I don't know, I was trying to stop the tears, but I couldn't."

The visual is undeniably refreshing and the vibrant Mr Kamera-produced beat only adds to that.
