Though Left Eye doesn't appear in the live-action shots, she does appear with T-Boz and Chilli in cartoon form. The end of the video even features a tribute to her that says, "In loving memory of Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes". Meanwhile, the live-action shots of the video portray girl talk in three different settings: the Dirty South, Japan and Africa and all three settings involve T-Boz and Chilli gossipping about a certain male person. Intercut with this footage is clips of T-Boz and Chilli performing a choreographed dance routine with male and female backup dancers.
