Rock And Roll Love Affair (stylized as 'Rock & Roll Love Affair' in the video's intro) is a Prince video released for broadcast and to promote the single. It is the first Prince video to have been broadcast officially on a YouTube TV Channel.

The video shows Prince singing, playing guitar and keyboards in Paisley Park’s Studio C, rehearsal room (a.k.a. the "NPG Music Club" formerly the "Love4Oneanother room"). He is backed by Ida Nielsen on bass, Andy Allo on guitar and Hannah Ford on drums. The video contains shots from a director's perspective, with close-ups of Prince, Hannah Ford, Andy Allo and Ida Nielsen, both in color and black and white. In addition to shots of Prince and his trio band, a few shots show several horn players in the aisles of the room, paired with different models serving as personal assistants, holding sheet music while they play their part.

A glimpse of "Reine Keis Quintet", a painting by C’Babi Bayoc, used in 2001 for The Rainbow Children album artwork, can be seen in the background of a side shot of Ida Nielsen and Andy Allo. The rehearsal room carpet also features the NPG Music Club logo. It is unlikely that inclusion of these references to earlier Prince projects was intentional.
