Giving the world something that is needed to be heard by many people who are struggling to explore their sexuality, Calliope Wren brings it for a sexually-charged addictive pop track, titled “Her and I”. This is everything we wanted and more and it’s already a part of our pride playlists, so make sure you add it to yours too. This is her follow-up single to “They Don’t Understand Me” which featured Corbin Bronson.

Sultry and sexy, “Her and I” is everything we’ve needed in a pride anthem for years. Calliope Wren’s vocals are on fire from the get-go with some gorgeous poetic lines that twist around the ecstasy-driving beat that has a slight haunting melody that works well with the song’s narrative. Her awesome lyrics dive into the exploration of sexuality and finding oneself which is something that a lot of people are struggling with and we believe that Calliope Wren gives these people a sense that it is okay and that there’s nothing wrong with exploring who you are and who you like, with this awesome song “Her and I”. Making her listeners know that they’re not alone, with the release of this song, and that she’s here for them, especially this Pride Month, just showcases the amazing artist that Calliope Wren is.
Taking the essence of the song and showcasing it in all its glory is the incredible music video, which has been directed by Nikki Silva Productions. The opening scene sees Calliope Wren checking her phone, we then follow her back in time to the memories of the other night when she did a lot more than just hang out with a love interest (the person from which she’s hoping to receive a message). Her counterpart is played by Greta Hicks, and they effortlessly convey the pure ecstasy connection one has when one meets someone for the first time. Calliope Wren brings power and embodies the track in the performance segments, connecting with the camera, connecting with her love interest, and connecting with the track itself, managing to convey to the world that not only is it okay to fall for someone of the same sex, but gosh is it oh so right, and that flawless chemistry that is displayed on-screen is exactly what we all need to see this Pride Month! The beautiful ending scene sees Greta Hicks asking Calliope Wren if they want to hang out again, via text – well, of course, she does! Sexy, sultry, and full of passion, whilst also highly relating to the song, this music video is a total must-watch!
