Identical twin duo TFT are a rising force in rap music and aren’t afraid to let everyone know about it with their single, ‘Glue’. The pair from Brooklyn, New York, got into hip hop through their mother, who was a DJ.
‘Glue’ is an autobiographical track, with TFT telling the story of their twin bond, and that they’re sticking together like glue – nobody and nothing will come between them. They’ve faced a lot of struggles in their lives, people trying to put a wedge between them, bullying them, making up stories about them and so on. But they are an inseparable power – they know there is strength in unity, and so united they stand. They’ve got each other’s back; “when I move you move”.
Set against a drum and bass heavy instrumental, the twins take each line in turn, a total team – almost finishing each other’s sentences. It’s a great illustration of their closeness.
