My diet's killing me! My heels are killing me! My shopping's killing me!

My email is killing me! My phone is killing me! My God you’re killing me…………Haven‘t you felt like screaming things like these off the top of your lungs? Well, check this out, a few days ago as I sat at my desk at the office replying to about 100+ emails, a co-worker came up to me and asked me if I had heard Robyn’s new CD.  I told him that I had not and he told me that he had the copy and that I should listen to it. The first song he played was a clubby, witty and ridiculously catchy song called Don’t F*****g Tell Me What To Do. Oh the glory that invaded my little ears, the song is fabulous at best!  We have been playing the song over and over at the office and I think some of my other co-workers are getting annoyed, but come on, can you blame me? I am a sucker for catchy songs and Robyn’s song got me hooked!

On June 15th, she released the first of 3 albums, all due this year. The first one is called Body Talk Pt. 1 out of which the first single is titled Dancing On My Own. The video is already out and was directed by Max Vitali. Let me tell you that from the styling, lyrics, and everything in between, the video is fab! It’s one of those songs that anyone can relate to, girl with a broken heart runs into the ex and he is with another girl, totally cliché, yet totally catchy!

This first CD has a total of 9 songs, the second one will be released sometime in late summer/fall and the 3rd one over the winter.  For these three projects Robyn collaborated with Diplo (Philadelphia-based DJ, producer and songwriter who recently released an album under Major Lazer [yes, the one who had a mixtape with La Roux’s song Bulletproof]), Snoop Dogg amongst others.

If your ears are ready for some Robyn’s infectious sound, then get ready because this summer she will be touring with Kelis, though they will be touring separately, they will meet up for some of the dates of the tour and will have joint performances. Robyn is scheduled to come to the Bay on July 24th at the Mezzanine. 

Here’s Robyn’s fabulous video for Dancing on My Own, enjoy!
