Call My Name is a Prince video released for broadcast. The song only received a promotional release later in 2004.

The video, directed by Sanaa Hamri, was shot in Los Angeles, California on 21 May 2004 (just before the second leg of the Musicology Live 2004ever Tour). It is mostly a lip synced performance video, but also has what seems stock footage of different ethnic looking weddings.

Of note, this is Stokley Williams' only appearance in a Prince video. Stokley (as he was often simply known professionally), together with Chance Howard and Kip Blackshire, had contributed additional vocals on the studio recording to which they lip synched in this performance.

  • A limited number of members of the NPG Music Club were invited to put their name on a guest list at the cost of a 25ct fee. The shoot was projected to commence at 2 p.m. However upon arriving on the scene, both NPGMC members and other extras were sent home because the soundstage and set up was too small to have them there.
  • Sanaa Hamri has directed the following videos for Prince: Musicology, Call My Name, A Million Days, Black Sweat, Fury, Guitar (second version) and Fixurlifeup.
