Ivy Sole Presents 90s-Tinged Visuals on Call Me

I’m a sucker for throwback vibes. I’m an even bigger sucker for them when they’re placed together with thought-provoking music. In Ivy Sole’s case, “Call Me” provides both thought and throwbacks. The track is split into two parts, one from the perspective of Sole’s stepfather and one from her perspective. I like how they play with each other, as the first sets up the stepfather as someone who isn’t really around because of a prison stint. Meanwhile, the second verse discusses how that had an effect on Sole growing up and how it’s made her less likely to trust people around her unless they’ve proven their worth and their ability to stay ten toes down.

The visuals have a lot of callbacks to 1990s hip-hop and Black culture while also delving a bit into the early 2000s scene as well. Blink and you’ll miss a reference that most 80s and 90s babies would get. I love the care her director put to recreating some of these scenes, as it plays deeply into Sole’s possible want of having someone there for her when things go left. As it turns out, music is the only constant we see in the video when things go wild. Check out the visuals below and support dope music in all its forms.
