While giving the single and the accompanying video a general good reception, the critics couldn’t help marking the heavy resemblance of Brown’s sound as well as outfit and general image to Michael Jackson of “Smooth Criminal” and “Beat It” period, with lighter inspirations from Prince, Sam Cooke and Phil Collins. Brown confirms that the King of Pop has always been his biggest muse.
Talking about the video, which Brown co-directed together with Sylvain White, he revealed that he wanted to go “more cinematic” and unleash the entertaining aspect. He also claimed that he is a big cinema lover. The plot of the video revolves around a forbidden love between Brown’s character and an Asian girl, whose father chases them down. Once again Brown heavily borrows from Michael Jackson in his dance-moves-cum-fighting-skills while showing his date the city night life and protecting her from her father’s goons. Summarizing the video, Brown said: “It's comparing a woman to how priceless and delicate she is.”
