This super-smooth grove from Calvin Harris x The Weeknd now has a trippy Daft Punk-feeling music video that might be just what you need to start the weekend. If you don’t have weed money right now, watching this might do the trick.
For those who love drama, The Weeknd cleared a few things up with Esquire about whether his songs are about his famous relationships. Mentioning “Call Out My Name” specifically, journalist Allison P. Davis notes:
It was also peak “Let’s speculate about what’s going on here,” because the album exists in a world where an assumed timeline of Tesfaye’s high-profile relationships has taken shape, where he stopped dating Bella Hadid and was romantically involved with pop star Selena Gomez, who then went back to her ex Justin Bieber. There are multiple blogs dedicated to which lyrics are assumed to be about Hadid (“I hope you know this dick is still an option. . . . You were an equestrian, so ride it like a champion”), which are about Gomez (“I almost cut a piece of myself for your life”), and which are about himself (“Ima fuck the pain away, and I know I’ll be okay”).
