A Sultry Queen of the Damned: FKA Twigs in “Two Weeks”


In the above video for “Two Weeks,”  the London-based FKA Twigs levels a serene eye straight at the camera. From her position of power, flanked by a devoted troop of mesmerizing miniature dancers, she is poised, regal, otherworldly; equal parts Egyptian goddess, Daenerys in Game of Thrones, and Aaliyah, Queen of the Damned.

The thick, oscillating waves of keyboard insistently tug the song forward while Twigs’ assured vocals slip, slide, hang back and swell dramatically to create a perfect piece of seductive and intriguing trip-hop. The video just might be a premonition: Twigs is ready to rule.
