Robyn has been active in the music business for two decades now, but it wasn’t until her 2010 dual album Body Talk that she truly broke through in the U.S. And it’s no wonder — both parts of the album were packed with instant dance classics that paired honest and often sad lyrics with fiery beats. Her songs have been part of iconic scenes and viral videos ever since, like the famous Girls bedroom dance to “Dancing on My Own” that all adventurous women do, as well as a full and faithful re-creation of the “Call Your Girlfriend” choreography by SNL’s Taran Killam. Body Talk featured a slithering, sexy collaboration with Norwegian electronic music duo Röyksopp called “None of Dem” and now, four years later, Robyn’s first collection of new material is a mini-album with the same pair called Do It Again. In celebration, all three are touring together, performing both their own songs as well as their collaborations. You won’t be dancing on your own in this audience.
