Music video

The music video for "That's Right" was filmed a day before "Can't Leave 'Em Alone" and was directed by The Fat Cats. On 11 July 2007, a clip of the video, which was videotaped by an unknown person, was released on the internet. On 25 December 2007 at midnight, the video became available for download on Ciara's official MySpace blog. On January 15 2008, "That's Right" premiered on BET's "106 & Park".

The video begins with a close-out shot of a gas station, amongst which a telephone rings. The shot changes to where we see Ciara, Monica, and Ciara's head-choreographer Jamaica sitting in a car at a gas pump. Ciara sends the caller "straight to voice-mail" and begins to discuss how she's taking independence from her significant other. The shot changes again to where Lil Jon is shouting "I bet you won't get crunk!" Ciara proceeds to ride down the street until she reaches a "food mart" where she dances to choreography along with male friends. The shot then changes to Ciara in all leather with her girls gettin' Crunk. They all begin to dance until the ending of the song where a distant fading shot of Ciara is shown.
