Throughout “Sum Bout U” you will notice his one style that even FKA twigs is a victim of: his screeching voice. The two exchange, as they intertwine, their high-pitched voices, while they yearn and thirst for each other: “It’s something ’bout you / You do something to me, make me feel some way / The way that I feel about you, nobody’ll take your place ”.
