On re-listening to this song for the first time in months, I couldn’t help but write about it.
‘Two Weeks’ is a masterclass in songwriting. Making a song about sex that’s original and sexy is nearly impossible, but FKA Twigs manages to do it. The vocals focus on how after two weeks with FKA Twigs, you’ll have totally forgotten about your ex. I’m not usually one for lyrics, but the lyrics are commandingly visceral:
Pull out the incisor
Give me two weeks you won’t recognise her
On top of that, the production and arrangements are impeccable (I’m a sucker for backwards effects). FKA Twigs’s vocal delivery is the crowning glory with a sultry falsetto.
