#5 – FKA Twigs – Two Weeks

BLQ-FKA
There is a line in this song that is sung so gently that it can be missed if one is not paying attention to the lyrics: “I can f*ck you better than her”. There is competition and a challenge to the sex. There is the drive to outdo a competitor. When she sings “Flying like a streamer/Think of new ways to do each other”, she speaks of invention, and all she needs is two weeks. That confidence is irresistible. “Pull out the incisor/Give me two weeks/You won’t recognise her”… “High motherf*cker/Get your mouth open/ You know you’re mine”. She’s won.
