Robyn Body Talking from San Francisco

Biography

She is Robyn. The most killingest pop star on the planet. A pint-sized atom bomb dosed to the tits on electric and dispensing wisdom in three-minute modernist pop bulletins on the post-adolescent condition.

The dust has barely had time to settle since the arrival of Body Talk 1, the first instalment of Robyn's ambitious three-part album release plan for this year. Lead single Dancing ... Read more in Amazon's Robyn Store

Robyn ~ Robyn Is Here

Customer Reviews

She has a great voice, writes great lyrics, and the beats of her songs are irresitible.
Josh Andrews
Funloving yet thoroughly adult, Robyn is the queen of pop princesses-- may her reign continue and her realm expand forever!
Chosroes III
Show me Love is one of my top Robyn favorites, and the rest of the songs are very good too.

More Pink than Britney, this songwriting Swedish funkstress helped set off a teenpop revolution, and remains the best solo artist the movement has produced. Though her voice has a bit of the helium-tinged quality that makes Europop females entertaining, Robyn's style is hard, soulful, funkdafied pop a la "Bedtime Stories": opener "Bumpy Ride" is one of the all-time great shouldabeen-singles, with a speaker-slammin' bassline punching out Robyn's life-is-tough advice. But, as the great single "Show Me Love" indicates, she equates love and life, and it's the pleasure and the pain of this formula that determines her vision of this bumpy ride. Those two famous singles, "Do You Know (What It Takes)" and "Show Me Love", introduced the world to Max Martin, and his name's never been attached to anything as good since, but it's indicative of Robyn's musical chops that his credits are limited to those. "You've Got That Something" shows her softer, boppy side, but that "mm mm mm baby baby baby" reveals that her soulful roots are never far away. The syncopation of "In My Heart" and the ocean-kissed "How" couldn't be more throbbingly sexy. "The Last Time" is a densely, sensuously layered slow jam, handing a lover the eviction notice, while "Just Another Girlfriend"s bossy beats and challenge-laden lyrics play for keeps. "Do You Really Want Me (Show Respect)" is a delightful girl-power catechism with a playful, Sesame Street-like melody but firm beat. As for "Do You Know (What It Takes)", nothing on the radio today sounds so quintessentially modern, so (as Francesca Lia Block would say) "slinkster-cool." This whole album is stacked with sassy appeal, butt-wiggling grooves, and gorgeous vocals. Funloving yet thoroughly adult, Robyn is the queen of pop princesses-- may her reign continue and her realm expand forever!

You'd be a fool to dismiss this fine debut CD just because it's "another pop princess". But if you look past the tired genre, you'll find a very talented, vocally rich and likeable singer in Robyn, who has 3 Top 10 singles. Her voice, right off the bat, will stun you. She's Swedish, but sounds like a legitimate R&B/soul diva, a la Diana Ross or Toni Braxton. She's incredible. Her songs border on irrestistibly catchy to amazingly heart-felt, and they all pack a punch. I reccommend this to anyone looking for a fine album. I heard she's releasing a sophomore effort soon... I can't wait.

Back in 97-98, this teen came on to the scene amidst the teen pop explosion. She released this album and although it spawned two top 10 hits, she vanished just as quietly as she came despite the fact that others of this pop movement *BSB, Britney, and the Spice Girls* became huge. It's a shame because this album was actually pretty enjoyable and still is.
The big hits that are still played on the radio once in a blue moon were "Do You Know (What It Takes)" and "Show Me Love." "Do You Know" is a catchy piece of funk-based dance pop and is my absolute favorite. "Show Me Love" is a little more soulful and ballad-ish, but with a beat. "Do You Really Want Me" was also a single, but didn't do as well, but was still a minor hit. It's also very catchy with it's taunt-like chorus. The filler is pretty fair too. "Bumpy Ride" could have easily been a hit. Other stand-outs include "Here We Go" and The Last Time."
Unless you were really paying attention, you probably missed Robyn the first time. I'm surprised that her album is still in print so I recommend getting it while you still can.

I've wanted to give Robyn credit for a while now. She was the first singer to start the Mandy Moore/Britney Spears/Jessica Simpson/Christina Aguilera/Vitamin C/Jessica Riddle - (shall I go on?) craze. Back then, pop music took a back seat to alternative/rock and soul/R&B...but Robyn set it off.
The first time I heard the song, "Do You Know What It Takes", I was in my car on my way from Santa Barbara to the Bay Area and INSTANTLY fell in love with the song. I thought it was 702 or some other new group, but when I found out who she was, I was impressed because her sound was R&B and she wasn't even American, she was from Sweden. This was back in the summer of 1997. I quickly bought the single (the e-smoove bounce mix is the best version) and bobbed my head to this new pop sound along with Aaliyah, Missy, Puff and Ginuwine that summer.
Then that fall/winter, "Show Me Love" came out with the 'cK' style video, and I HAD to buy the album cuz the song had that 'bright' sound to it. (I'll explain 'bright' in a second). I wasn't dissapointed because it was a good buy. Both "Do You Know What It Takes" and "Show Me Love" were produced by the late Denniz PoP and Max Martin, the team behind Britney Spears, NSync and the Backstreet Boys. The 'bright' sound behind these acts is also what makes Celine Dion's "That's The Way It Is" such a great song too. (That's what I mean..."Show Me Love" is musically, a close relative to "That's The Way It Is - trust me)
Although most people don't seem to know about her (in the U.S.), Robyn was revolutionary because she paved the way for artists like Pink (who is the closest thing to Robyn) to do R&B music and do it well.
