FKA Twigs released Caprisongs two days after her mid-January birthday. The mixtape isn’t as well-received as 2019’s “MAGDALENE”, which is a very difficult task. Caprisongs is a quick departure from her moody, deeply-emotional, and religiously-inspiring songs on her last album. The 16-track mixtape contains groovy Afrobeat instrumentals and is short and sweet. Each song has a new life and transitions to a different frequency.
Caprisongs recognizes the sadness she is currently feeling, and revels in it. But, she moves on to better times. FKA Twigs is a former boyfriend Shia LaBeouf. According to The New York Times, TMZ and The New York Times, FKA Twigs sued actor Shia LaBeouf in 2020 for “sexual assault, sexual battery and emotional distress.” MAGDALENE also spoke out about the racism she faced from British media and “Twilight” fans when she was with actor Robert Pattinson. Caprisongs gives FKA Twig the chance to celebrate her zodiac season and grow.
Since its release, she has been dropping “caprivids”, which are short music videos that last between 1-4 minutes. These are the majority of her songs. Her videos have many tones. Twigs, a driven Twigs, climbs up a roof to shoot another Twigs version below. It signals growth and progressing from an older mindset.
The most popular song, “Tears in the Club”, gets the longest runtime and the highest budget video. She is seen lying on the ground, being manipulated by background dancers, before she repels them and starts dancing. The Weeknd joins her, providing his trademark falsetto. He watches as a figure performs in front of him, and his tears trail down his eyes. Twigs glides in a cylindrical tank around an underwater pole. She is seen lying on her back on the floor as she struggles to build herself up.
The mixtape’s final song, “thank you song”, receives the most recent caprivid. The video is shot on an empty bus where only a mythological guardian angel accompany her. The song begins with her expressing that she wanted to die. The song turns into gratitude for getting through the worst times of her life. As they ride home, she embraces the figure.
Despite her videos displaying every emotion, her personal life appears to be on the rise. Although it’s not confirmed, it seems that she is in a healthy relationship Matt Healy, the frontman of The 1975. In a recent Instagram posting, she announced that she would be appearing in Rupert Sanders’ remake 1994 film “The Crow.” We fully support Caprisongs and its videos as signs of a better future for FKA Twigs.
