Robyn

The career path of most artists runs from alternative to popular.  For Robyn it was exactly the opposite. The Swedish nymph was barely 18 when she scored two monster hits in the United States. ‘Show me love’ (1996) and ‘Do you know (what it takes)’ (1997) are not bad but they're easy to forget. Things really became interesting in 2005. Robyn returned with a bigger, fuller sound but her record label didn't go for it. So Robyn bade them ‘farewell’ and became her own record executive. ‘With every heartbeat’ (2005) was an immediate hit. The intelligent electro-pop of the new Robyn was also appreciated by music critics and by colleagues such as Snoop Dogg, Neneh Cherry, Basement Jaxx and The Knife. Her new album ‘Honey’ (2018) - the first in eight years - is more proof of her unique position between commercial and cult.
