The music video for "step YOU" was directed by Inoue Tetsuo.
It begins with a man walking up to a music box-like contraption. As he activates the levers four miniature versions of Hamasaki appear. Each of the four wears a different colour and displays a different personality. The blue sings in a cute manner, the black cold, the white shy and the red seductive. As the man activates the last lever, the contraption begins to short-circuit, and the four Hamasakis turn into one who sings in the rain wearing yellow.
