Star stats: The 31-year-old Swedish singer has been generating buzz with her ebullient electronica album Body Talk Pt. 1, the first of a three-part series. For Pt. 2 (out Sept. 7), she recruited the superstar rapping skills of Snoop Dogg for the track U Should Know Better. She introduced her song Dancing on My Own to mainstream audiences in a July performance on Late Show With David Letterman.
Sound: Techno-heavy beats reflect her love of dance…

Robyn, born Robin Miriam Carlsson, has been making music since she was a teenager. Now 31 years old, she has the closest thing to what Americans call a Song of the Summer with "Dancing on My Own," the first single from her new album "Body Talk Pt. 1," which was released in June. ("Body Talk Pt. 2" will be released in September; Part 3, perhaps, by the end of… Continue

Kelis and Robyn may have been billed as co-headliners for Tuesday night's show at the Trocadero, but it was in words only.
In a multiracial crowd of men and women in their 20s and 30s, Robyn was the clear favorite.
Kelis took the stage first. The 30-year-old singer hit pop culture with her infectious and slightly risque "Milkshake" back in 2003, but has since transformed herself from a Neptunes-produced rap/hip-hop/neo-soul star into a club diva.
She came on… Continue

As one Mr. Jacobim Mugatu might say: “That damn Sweden, it’s so hot right now.” And it’s true; I’m sure we could talk about umlauts and fanged Nordic dreamboats and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo all day long.
But I am here to tell you about The Girl With The Spandex Banana Pants—the tiny, platinum-quiffed blond who last night swept New York City’s Webster Hall into a frenzy so wild that it threatened to collapse the floors of that historic venue and send the sold-out crowd straight… Continue

Lately, some critics have taken to referring to Robyn as Sweden’s answer to Lady Gaga, which would be more of a compliment if not for the fact that Robin Miriam Carlsson’s career stretches back three times the length of Stefani Germanotta’s. Then again, it depends which Robyn you’re talking about. The teen-pop sensation who scored an international hit with “Show Me Love” back in the mid-’90s? Or the sharp-tongued, shape-shifting electronic artist who liberated herself from the music industry… Continue

If Kelis and Robyn aren't already best friends, they should be. Even though the dance-pop divas came of age on opposite sides of the Atlantic - one in New York, the other in Sweden - they have a lot of things in common.
For instance, both showed up to their sold-out co-headlining gig at the 9:30 Club on Monday night armed with heavy percussion, booming dance beats, and gut-rattling bass. And both came toting a strong, thoroughly female pop-sensibility - big emotional hooks infused… Continue
