Leikeli47: Two Times a Charm

Devonté Hynes' piano improvisation, Kindness' "World Restart," a look back at Secret Machines and more in the music we tweeted this week

Rapper Leikeli47 is masked in mysteryliterally. The artist who crosses genres from soul to Caribbean step has only been photographed wearing a mask and her videos usually feature her friends instead of the artist herself. Her recent single “Two Times a Charm” sees the most advanced confluence of influences in the (supposedly) Brooklyn-based rapper’s catalogue. Quick spit verses la Busta Rhymes seamlessly turn to an intimate R&B tinged aside. It’s disjointed but catchy, the kind of track that against all odds simply works. Breaking new ground in the female rap game, Leikeli47 is an artist to watch.
