FKA Twigs Serves as a Queen in ‘Two Weeks’ Video
FKA Twigs is putting us under her spell once again with her latest video for ‘Two Weeks,’ featured on her debut album, ‘LP1.’
In the Nabil Elderkin-directed visual, she plays all of the characters featured in single-shot effort. FKA Twigs, born Tahliah Barnett, is not only the queen of the kingdom but is also multiplied into a number of barely-dressed dancing servants. With previous professional dancing experience — she’s appeared as a backup dancer in videos for singer Jessie J — this British breakout star shows off just how effortlessly she moves.
Her gentle vocals over supple, layered beats bring an ethereal romance to ‘Two Weeks,’ making it a perfect summer song to get close to that special someone.
We recently included her ‘Untitled’ track on our list of Top R&B Songs of 2014. And with her 10-track album, ‘LP1,’ arriving Aug. 12, this isn’t the last we’ll hear from the British songstress. She’s even got some performance dates in the U.S. fans can look forward to this summer.
