Regarding the video, Michaels says “A lot of my fans know me as the awkward uncoordinated girl that has too many feelings. Well, I’m still that. But I got to shoot a music video where it was just me, in clothes that we’re so fun and way too tight and I loved every second of it! I’m still a long way from being a confident creature but I felt much closer to it when we shot this day. I hope everyone likes it and if anything, you find yourself dancing around too!”
