The music video was directed by Mathew Cullen, who previously worked with Perry on her music video for the song California Gurls . According to Cullen, Perry approached him with the idea of setting the video in Ancient Egypt, and situated it in Memphis, Egypt as a nod to Juicy J's home city of Memphis, Tennessee. Perry's idea for the music video was to combine Ancient Egyptian culture with Memphis, Tennessee hip hop. Speaking of Perry's concept, Cullen said That's music to my ears — when an artist has a couple concepts that they want to mash up to create something fresh.

Upon release, the song's intro received comparisons to that of the late Indonesian lady rocker, Nike Ardilla, specifically her song Tinggallah Ku Sendiri (Leave Me Alone).
