Swedish pop star Robyn Carlsson debuted
still a teenager with Robyn Is Here (1997), containing the hits
Do You Know and Show Me Love, her signature song
(not the Show Me Love of Robin S),
both recorded two years earlier and composed by producer Max Martin.
My Truth (1999), that was meant as her "artistic" statement, spawned
Electric (by by Ulf Lindstrom and Johan Ekhe).
She hit bottom with Don't Stop the Music (2002), an aimless
collection if there ever was one.
However, her career was resurrected by Robyn (Konichiwa, 2005),
that contained Be Mine and With Every Heartbeat.
The album was reissued as
Robyn (Cherrytree, 2008) and launched worldwide amid much fanfare, but
her soundscapes derived from synth-pop and hip hop (and architected by
Klas Ahlund, not by her) sounded terribly old-fashioned.
She impersonated the quintessential pop star, producing very hyped bad music.
Body Talk Pt 1 (2010), containing
Dancing On My Own,
was the first installment in a trilogy that
paid tribute to the era of techno and house music, followed by
Body Talk Pt 2 (2010).
Body Talk (2010) was an odd compilation of these two parts plus some
Honey (2018) is a collection of low-key pop songs, notably Honey.
