Video: FKA Twigs, "Two Weeks"

Watch Tahliah Barnett shadow Cleopatra in the video for her captivating new single

Last night, Ellie Goulding (sitting in for Zane Lowe) premiered a monster of a new FKA Twigs song called "Two Weeks," the lead single from the London-based artist's forthcoming debut album, LP1. It seems that the singer/songwriter also known as Tahliah Barnett isn't wasting any time, releasing the visuals for the single this morning. Directed by Nabil, the video finds Barnett shadowing Cleopatra, or an Egyptian goddess of sorts, slowly moving out of view to see her surrounded by a lush Roman landscape and several dancers slowly mimicking her charms. Watch the video for "Two Weeks" below; LP1 drops on August 12th via Young Turks. I have a haunting suspicion that it's going to be an absolute smash.
