"He Wasn't Man Enough
" is the lead single
from Toni Braxton
's third studio album, The Heat
(2000). It reached number two on the Billboard Hot 100

for four weeks. The song earned Braxton her fourth Grammy Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance
directed by Bille Woodruff from February 25-26, 2000, starts out with Braxton as an animated superhero
who unzips her shirt to ward off villains. Next, she is shown dancing in a red cylinder-like hallway. The shot turns to a club where her ex (played by Keri Lewis of Mint Condition) and his current wife (played by Robin Givens
) walk in. Givens looks Braxton up and down and flashes her wedding ring
at her. Braxton scoffs because she'd had him first and knows what a cheat he is.
The video flashes between Braxton dancing in the hallway and the club scene. At one point, the two women are in the bathroom of the club and Braxton lets her know why she dumped her husband. They set up an act where Braxton goes into a private room with him, and gets him to drop his pants; all the while he is on camera, and everyone at the club, including his current wife, is watching. At the end, Givens busts in and throws the ring at him, and the two women give each other a high five.
The video also features cameo appearances by Rodney Chester
