Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad? is the second Prince video to have been released for broadcast to promote the release of a single.

Contrary with I Wanna Be Your Lover, but quite similar to the (unreleased) band version of the of I Wanna Be Your Lover visual promo, this video shows Prince and his band lip-syncing to a live performance. The band plays on a concert stage, which is a notably different from the I Wanna Be Your Lover (band version), shot in a rehearsal space/studio.

Of note, this is the last appearance of Gayle Chapman in a Prince music video (she also appears in the unreleased I Wanna Be Your Lover (band version) video.
