Va$htie

Who: Vashtie Kola
AKA: Downtown Sweetheart
Location: New York City / Global Jet Setter
Occupation: DJ/ Creative Director/ Producer/ Model
What we’re going crazy for: Her NEW unofficial video for Drake’s HotLine Bling.


Lately, we’ve been crazy inspired by Drake’s Single HOTLINE BLING. Last month we did a editorial (which will be coming soon!)  inspired by the song; and we are not the only ones inspired. Erykah Badhu, Disclosure X Sam Smith and Kehlani and Charlie Puth released their own covers of the song last month.  



Vashtie, who is a creative consultatent for Puma and many others; recently released an  art film she directed, wrote and starred in for Drake's hit track "Hotline Bling.”  



Vashtie plays the protagonist of the story, who has trouble reaching  her baby love  (played by Highly Suspect's Johnny Stevens) due to their "pursuit of different lifestyles, and she ends up settling for another man (played by A$AP Bari.)” She eventually is consumed with sadness and picks up destructive behaviors …... this video is deep!  

According the lovely people of Highsnobsociety, Vashtie was inspired by the character “Lolita” and the idea that looks can deceiving; especially through social media. 

"I wrote this story about “Lolita” in 2008 and, at the time, felt little connection to her. But, in the past year as my career and personal life have changed in (scary and exciting) ways I never could have predicted – I started to understand her. I found myself re-writing this piece, for exercise and therapy.
2015 is a time of “likes” and “followers” and “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 all. Dom Perignon and opulence. Attention and adornment. But, as I’ve learned this past year, “seems” can’t really be trusted.
Thanks to Drake and to my friends for helping me make this.”
