Vashtie has dropped an unofficial video for ‘Hotline Bling’ by Drake.
Boasting quite the skillset; film maker, DJ, NYC artist, Socialite… She has now debuted an “art film” in which she was both the director, writer and in the video itself, providing a visual stimulant to what’s being described as Drake’s ode to the booty call.

You can expect a very welcome appearance from ‘Highly Suspect’ rocker, Johnny Stevens as the love interest of the story. Conforming to stereotypical hedonistic indulgences; booze, partying and an abundance of groupies. Naturally he doesn’t have time to take her calls.
Meanwhile, Vashtie is amerced in a culture cliché of her own, embroiled in the socialite scene of New York City and embracing all the demands and pleasures that come with it. Becoming bored of the tiresome routine with her rock ‘n’ roll beau, she decides to direct her attention elsewhere at none other than, A$AP Rocky’s Bari. Instagram sensation, Luka Sabbat and the chic model coupling, ‘Jarlos’.
In a recent interview with Highsnobiety, Vashtie discussed her muse for the video, “I wrote this story about ‘Lolita’ in 2008 and at the time felt little connection to her. But in the past year, my career and personal life have changed in scary and exciting ways I could never have predicted. I started to understand her. I found myself rewriting this piece for exercise and therapy.”
The talents of Vashtie have not gone unnoticed, amassing a following of 50.4k on Twitter, she went on to discuss how times have changed due to the evolution of social media. “2015 is a time of ‘likes’, ‘followers’, ‘direct messages’ and constant connection with strangers. But I wonder a lot; what do people really know about me? Or each other for that matter? And how far is that from reality? ‘Lolita’ seems to have it ideal. Dom Perignon and opulence. Attention and adornment. But as I’ve learnt this past year, ‘seems’ can’t really be trusted.”
Not forgetting her manners, she closes the interview with a courteous nod to Drizzy. “Thanks to Drake and to my friends for helping me make this.”
