NEW MUSIC: FKA TWIGS | TEARS IN THE CLUB (FEATURING THE WEEKND)
FKA Twigs recruits the Weeknd to give in to their “emotions overload” in the new song “Tears in the Club.” The track follows the release of FKA Twigs’ single “Measure of a Man” featuring Central Cee, which appears on the soundtrack from the upcoming film "The King’s Man" out Dec. 22. “Tears in the Club” lives up to the promise of its name, pairing a booming dance floor beat and atmospheric synths with lyrics from Twigs and the Weeknd that are packed with heartache and angst: “Tears in the club” goes part of the hook, “Because your love’s got me fucked up.” The track also arrives with a moody, sci-fi-tinged music video — replete a few big dance numbers, to boot — directed by Amber Grace Johnson. Last year, FKA Twigs told Grammy Museum’s "Programs at Home" that she completed an album in quarantine during the pandemic. Her most recent album is 2019’s "Magdalene." In November, the Weeknd dropped the video for Starboy‘s “Die for You,” teamed up with Post Malone for “One Right Now,” collaborated with Rosalía on “La Fama,” and just released a new track titled "Poison" with the late singer Aaliyah. The singer is also working on his upcoming HBO series "The Idol," which is slated to star Troye Sivan, TV on the Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe, and Anne Heche. The Weeknd, meanwhile, released his latest album, "After Hours," in March 2020. Its second single, ‘Blinding Lights,’ became the biggest US Billboard Hot 100 song of all time last month.
