100 Greatest Songs of the Decade #42 FKA Twigs – Two Weeks

Released : 2014

R&B fundamentally, is sex music: forget the tempo, the singer, or the words, it’s a mode designed for people to get down to, to do things in the dark that would make the prudish hypocrites in the office think twice about sharing a cab with you.

Two Weeks is a song about sex that vibrates with passion, lust, wanting. On it Twigs – Tahliah Debrett Barnett to her mum, who you hope doesn’t read the lyrics – captures that yearning for consumation everyone should feel at least once in their life. And she calls it as she sees it, too:

“My thighs are apart for when you’re ready to breathe in
Suck me up, I’m healing with all the sh*t you’re dealing
Motherfu*cker, get your mouth open, you know you’re mine”

Turn off the lights – and what happens next is your secret.
