FKA Twigs' "Two Weeks" Channels Aaliyah in 'Queen of the Damned'

It takes a lot to even think about filling the shoes of Aaliyah, but FKA Twigs has done the gone-too-soon R&B megatalent proud with a new music video that calls upon the vampy stylings of Queen of the Damned. (Her vocals are almost on an Aaliyah-worthy level, too.)

"Two Weeks" makes for a much tamer mini-film, with FKA Twigs mounting her throne in a bronze headdress surrounded by gilt dancers bending to her every will. Directed by Nabil—aka Kanye West's Glow In The Dark collaborator—"Two Weeks" lives up to his meticulous, melodramatic and totally mesmerizing standards. 

Watch the strange magic above and keep an eye out for her full-length debut LP1, out August 12.
