Music video[]

The music video for the "10 Seconds" was shot in early October by Benny Boom and Costume design/styling by June Ambrose. It premiered November 12, and features an angry Jazmine kidnap her cheating boyfriend and torture him in an old abandoned building. The video begins with Jazmine's boyfriend getting to his car, only to be kidnapped by Sullivan. He is then seen in an abandoned building strapped to a chair with a bomb. When the music starts, Jazmine appears and shows a picture of the man and another girl. On the second verse, Jazmine presses a button that shows videos of him and the girl together. It then shows one of her throwing something at him. At this point she pours a glass of wine on him. When the bridge comes, the man has flashbacks of the things that happened. At the end of the video, when he only has ten seconds before the bomb explodes, Jazmine leaves the room. The man then realizes he was only dreaming.
