FKA Twigs is a singer whose distinct sound and look helped her rise to stardom.
In March 2023, the artist debuted her newest boyfriend to fans on Instagram.
Who is FKA Twigs?
FKA Twigs is a 35-year-old English singer born in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, whose birth name is Tahliah Debrett Barnett.
At 16 she began performing as a singer in youth clubs, before moving to London to pursue a career as a dancer.
She appeared as a backing dancer in Jessie J‘s videos for Do It Like A Dude and Price Tag, and also danced alongside Kylie Minogue, Ed Sheeran, and Plan B.
After making her first demos at 18, she began to get more modeling work and acquired a nickname – Twigs – based on the way her joints crack when she moves.
She changed it to FKA Twigs when an artist known as The Twigs complained, but she’s subsequently denied FKA stands for “formerly known as”, insisting the letters mean nothing “in particular”.
FKA Twigs released her first EPs in 2012 and 2013, and she began being listed as a hot new artist by various newspapers and music sites.
What are FKA Twigs’ best-known songs?
The music made by FKA Twigs defies easy definition but it’s generally referred to as a mix of R’n’B, electronica and trip-hop.
She’s said of her work process: “I like to experiment with sounds, generating emotions while putting my voice on certain atmospheres…
“I found my own way of playing punk. I like industrial sounds and incorporating everyday life’s sounds like a car alarm.”
She directs most of her music videos and incorporates expressive freestyle dancing, in the style of Kate Bush, into her live performances.
Her best-known songs include Two Weeks, Water Me, Video Girl, Papi Pacify and 2019’s cellophane.
