Two videos were made for Money Don't Matter 2 Night, one directed by Spike Lee, which has footage (shot in black and white) of a family trying to make ends meet, interspersed with images of the great depression in the 30s, and poverty and unimpolyment in the 80s and 90s. President George Bush, National Security Advisor Colin Powell, general Norman Schwarzkopf Jr. and (by then) businessman Donald Trump, are also in the footage, as well as images of wealth (a casino, a ball), and shanty-town Soweto, the 1990 war in Irak and refugees. The footage has some lyrics to the song overlaid in red, blue and yellow.

A second video was directed by Sotera Tschetter and shows Prince and The NPG performing the song in the studio. The footage of this was presumably shot in January 1992 together with footage for the Willing And Able and Call The Law videos.

Both Money Don't Matter 2 Night videos premiered on the same day, 14 April 1992. A third video combining the Spike Lee 'political'- and Sotera Tschetter performance video was made and premiered somewhat later. Only the Spike Lee version and combined Lee/Tschetter versions were made available in 2017, while the original Fong video was never commercially released.
