FKA Twigs has released her long-awaited mixtape, Caprisongs. The mixtape includes hit singles “Tears in the Club” featuring The Weeknd and “Ride the Dragon“. Caprisongs features artists like Daniel Caesar and Jorja Smith, with themes of self-love, resilience, and confidence, Caprisongs is the perfect mixtape for those who are trying to find themselves after dealing with heartbreak.
“… I have fallen back in love with music, danger, trying new things, sex, love, raves. Caprisongs is my journey back to myself through my amazing collaborators and friends.“FKA Twigs on her mixtape Caprisongs, via Instagram
Compared to her other works, Caprisongs focuses on a more r&b, contemporary pop, and trip-hop sound than Twigs‘ usual electronic sound. Songs like “lightbeamers” and “oh my love” are the perfect high-strung self-love songs for those going through a breakup. Songs like “Honda” and “Papi Bone” show a Caribbean influence that’ll have listeners raving and whining to the beat. Caprisongs is full of bops that are sure to evoke every emotion that listeners are feeling while reassuring them they are capable of getting through life’s problems. We can all learn something from FKA Twigs and her journey back into self-love.
