The song is a track from Twigs' M3LL155X
EP (pronounced 'Melissa'), which is also the name of the songstress' personal female energy. "The EP is called M3LL155X
, and 'Melissa' to me is my personal female energy. I've never called it 'Melissa' before the EP. It's not a weird alter ego. It's just my way of separating it from myself," she explained to Complex
. Twigs added that it was this energy that made her want to appear pregnant in the "Glass & Patron
" music video and the clips that follow.
Twigs went on to explain honing in on her "Melissa," with the help of voguing and her vogue friends. "Voguing has helped me grow into the best young lady that I can be at this time," she said. "Through these boys" - the dancers - "I've learned to embrace parts of my femininity that I wasn't in touch with before."
