ater Me is one of those songs that have stuck with me for a long time. Upon first listen, you almost cannot believe she is singing the words she sings. Then, the tear falls—sealing the deal. Whenever I am super emotional, the Arca and FKA twigs collaboration cross my mind. I guess today is one of those days.

On another note, the iconic computer graphics for “Water Me” are a masterpiece of its own. When the Venezuelan producer and FKA twigs work together. It isn’t anything short of glorious (See “EP2”). I first caught a glimpse of the artist during her backup dancing days with Jessie J. I also watched the parody on Beyoncé once.

Please, read the lyrics as you watch and hear the song. I think it taps into the side of most human beings who sometimes agree with those people who mistreat us. You start to side with them.



He won’t make love to me now
Not now, I’ve set the fee
He said it’s too much in pounds
I guess I’m stuck with me
He told me I was so small
I told him “Water me
I promise I can grow tall
When making love is free”
He won’t make love to me now
Not now, I’ve set the fee
He said it’s too much in pounds
I guess I’m stuck with me
He told me I was so small
I told him “Water me”


Yes, “M3LL155X” came out two years ago, but I hadn’t written about it yet. Without a doubt, it is one of the best A/V project releases to date. Watch it if you haven’t.
