FKA Twigs: “Two Weeks” Music Video
I’ve never heard a unique sound like FKA Twigs. Since the moment I discovered her last year, I fell in love and named her as my favorite trip-hop artist. Her breathy, mesmerizing vocals paired with trippy backbeats encapsulate the image of an ethereal goddess. Can you tell I’m a fan? So naturally, when her latest song “Two Weeks” debuted in late June, I was exhilarated. Even more so when I watched the music video for the first time.
Her song “Two Weeks” is purely about lust. Her sensual voice adds to the erotic vibe of the song, making any listener completely melt. Her lyrics are direct: “pull out the incisors, give me two weeks you won’t recognize her” and suggest that all she needs is two weeks to seduce the man she is trying to win to the point where he’ll be so enthralled with her that he’ll forget about his ex. Damn. I wish I had that sex appeal. Twigs knows what she’s doing, and let’s her love interest know first thing it by stating in the first verse “You know I’d quench that thirst, I can treat you better than her”. She knows he wants her. She knows he’ll love the sex. But she makes him chase her, by putting him in charge of instigating the first move. (“Cause you’re the only one who resonates that chaste, mouth open, like high”).
Watch the video and take a look at the lyrics! FKA Twigs sits on a golden throne, looking like a goddess, pouring water from her fingers into her subjects’ mouths. She looks strong and stunning, empowering women to be love their sexualities. Though looking like an innocent doe-eyed beauty, Twigs is a fierce female icon. FKA Twigs is a force to be reckoned with.
I know it hurts
You know I’d quench that thirst
(I can treat you better than her)
You say you’re lonely
I say you’ll think about it
Cause you’re the only
One who resonates that chaste, mouth open like (High)
Higher than a motherf****er, dreaming of it, it’s my lovin’ (High)
Flying like a stream of thunder, only way to do each other (High)
Pull out the incisors and give me two weeks, you won’t recognize her
Mouth open, you’re high
I know it hurts
You know I’d put you first
(I can f*** you better than her)
You say you want me
I say you’ll live without it
Unless you’re the only
One who instigates, got your mouth, open your heart
Feel your body closing, I can rip it open
Suck me up, I’m healing for the s*** you’re dealing
Smoke on your skin to get those pretty eyes rolling
My thighs are apart for when you’re ready to breathe in
Suck me up, I’m healing with all the s**** you’re dealing
Motherf***er, get your mouth open, you know you’re mine
I’d put you first, just close your eyes and dream about it
Higher than a motherf***er dreaming of it, it’s my lovin’
I’ll quench your thirst, just get so high and stop your doubting
