FKA twigs recent effort CAPRISONGS has jams. The mixtape finds the singer putting on a sound that’s a bit more street than her previous pop-forward outings, giving her sound a bit of an edge. One such track is “jealousy,” which delves into Afrobeats territory with an assist from guest Rema. The singer looks to visual cues from the music videos of the 1980s and 1990s to bring her visual for the track to life.
FKA twigs makes the visual homage obvious from jump as the clip opens with her strutting across the white background of an empty soundstage. She then takes inspiration from everything from C+C Music Factory‘s “Gonna Make You Sweat” and Neneh Cherry‘s “Buffalo Stance” to Los Del Rio‘s “Macarena,” Bobby Brown‘s “Every Little Step” and even Cameo‘s “Candy” and throws it in a blender with today’s sensibilities. The end result is a stylish clip featuring fun fashion, slick dancing and a scrolling composition of beautiful images sure to catch the eye and keep it locked on the screen.
Allow FKA twigs to give you a modern blast when you watch “jealousy” below.
