Tomorrow, FKA twigs will share her first-ever mixtape CAPRISONGS. The tracklist contains some of the biggest collaborations of her career: names like The Weeknd, Daniel Caesar, and Jorja Smith dot the 17-track effort. Rema, the Nigerian Afrobeats sensation, is also featured, and you can hear him brings twigs into his sonic world on "Jealousy," streaming below.
In an interview with Apple Music 1 airing today, FKA twigs referred to "Jealousy" as "the soul of [CAPRISONGS]" and described how she connected with Rema. "It was funny actually, because Rema was quite difficult to get in touch with. One of my closest friends, Irene, she's Nigerian. We kind of had made a link with Rema's team, but it was just difficult to get that flow conversation. I was talking to Irene one day, I was just like, 'This is like super random but I don't want to sound weird because I know you're Nigerian, but you don't know Rema, do you?' She was like, 'Yeah, yeah, no, I do know him.' ... I was like, 'You couldn't tell him to put some extra harmonies on the track. Could you?' It was actually through one of my oldest friends that we ended up connecting and finishing the track through her, which was really sweet. To me, that's the soul of the record.
