Music video

The music video for "Girls" was directed by Daniel Wolfe, and premiered on in October 2008. In the clip, bandmembers Amelle Berrabah, Keisha Buchanan and Heidi Range enjoy a girl's night out at a pole-dancing club, embraced by a "1980s disco style." It features the girls dancing and performing, focusing more on the other dancers during the chorus and on the girls while singing their verses. During their verses, Amelle engages sensual dance moves with one of the fellow female dancers and Keisha teases a male dancer.

While Big Brother: Celebrity Hijackmarker contestant Latoya Satnarinemarker is featured in a cameo appearance, Buchanan invited her boyfriend Dean Thomas to star in a suppoting role in the video. As reported, Berrabah decided to have pole-dancing lessons before filming the video yesterday so she "wouldn't make a fool out of herself on the pole." After recruiting female fans to star in the video, producers denied accusations they were being unfair by failing to pay those who starred in the video.A spokesman for the the band later stated: "No professional dancers are being asked to do anything for free. This is an opportunity for people who don’t dance for a living but who fancy their chances."
