The video was shot in early November, 1996 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen and around Minneapolis, Minnesota. The song features footage of some 50 ballet dancers wearing white leotards, each with one or two letters, spelling out the chorus of the song: "Betcha By Golly Wow! U're the one that I've been waiting 4 4ever. And ever will my love 4 u keep growing strong." Olympic gymnast Dominique Dawes is the lead dancer in the video. There is also black and white footage of Prince pumping gas in his white BMW Z3, and being paged to the hospital as Mayte is having their baby, as well as footage inside a hospital with Mayte having he temperature measured and looking happy.

On British television show 'Top Of The Pops' the video premiered in a different edit, comprised only the close up shots of Prince, some of which are also in the regular video.
