Made in Sweden : Robyn


Robin Miriam Carlsson, better known by her stage name Robyn (born 12 June 1979) is a Swedish recording artist and singer-songwriter. Robyn became known in the late nineties for her worldwide dance-pop hits “Show Me Love” and “Do You Know (What It Takes)” from her debut album Robyn Is Here (1997). Robyn entered Melodifestivalen 1997 as a songwriter with the entry “Du gör mig hel igen” (You Make Me Whole Again). She has since started to gain mainstream success worldwide owing to the popularity of her #1 hit single “With Every Heartbeat” and subsequent album release. In January 2009 Robyn won a Swedish Grammis award for Best Live Act 2008.

Robyn released the first of a trilogy of albums to be released this year titled Body Talk Pt. 1, in June 2010. It is her first album since Robyn (2005). The albums lead single “Dancing on My Own” was released a few weeks prior to the albums release, and became a hit single worldwide, including in the U.K. where it reached the Top 10. A follow up album, Body Talk Pt. 2 was released in September 6 and a follow up to that Speak Your Body: Body Talk Pt. 3 is expected in December 2010.
