Don’t Talk 2 Strangers is a video by Chaka Khan released for broadcast and to promote the single. Although the single was not released in the United States until January 1999, the video was sent to American music channels in November 1998 to promote the "Down In The Delta" motion picture soundtrack which also contains this song. Exact shooting date and location are unknown, but it was shot between late Spring and early Fall 1998. Don’t Talk 2 Strangers was directed by Steve Carr.

The video follows the narrative of the song about a mother forced to leave her child and given her advises. The reason why the mother leaves her daughter and entrusts her to her grandmother is however not detailed. Throughout the video, the little girl evolves and blossoms as a woman and then a mother in her turn.

Interestingly, the role of grandmother is played by Chaka Khan’s mother, Sandra Coleman and the role of the girl who has become an adult is played by Chaka Khan’s daughter, Milini Khan.
