When listening to the tunes you probably would never be able to paint exactly what the visuals might be for this song. You may have expected to see The Dream with his shades on or 2 Chainz doing a lil dance in the booty club but surprisingly neither artist made their cameo appearance in the video. Instead, the video stars Kierra Diggs, playing the role of a hardworking, single mother and college student by day and exotic dancer by night. Resembling what some women go through to try to make it to being Extremely Blessed. Check out the film below.

- All of your communication is through text messaging.
Yes! You don't have to talk everyday, all day but if you NEVER talk on the phone or hardly see each other in person he's more than likely not trying to make it anything "serious" with you. He just might be spending his time doing things he actually likes.
- He hushes you before picking up the phone.
This is a clear give away that you're a side chick!! He's not trying to let anyone know you are in the same presence..
- He doesn't allow you to take pictures with him.
He's afraid of being seen with you. He doesn't want to get caught up. With social media at an all time high, there's no telling where those pictures might end up and who's eyes will view them.
- He doesn't really care if he sees you or not.
When a man is into you he'll want to spend some time with you. No matter how long or short. You're most likely a side chick if you both have free time and you never hang out.
- You get put in last place.
- You're constantly in competition.
If you find yourself constantly trying to be more relevant than what he makes you, you are not main stream. His friends & fam know nothing about you, and his female friends get more play than you. Congratulations Hunny, YOU ARE A SIDE CHICK!
*Please note that this applies to those who think they are girl friend or number 1 and are in all reality, SIDE CHICKS!
