Meet Robyn. My new favorite artist. I featured her video yesterday but today I bring you more, more, MORE!
Robyn is a Sweedish pop star who blends the gritty sounds of American urban R&B with the sunny pop of her homeland. Robyn first found a hit when "Do You Know (What it Takes)" hit the Top Ten around the world including the US. Born Robyn Carlsson in Stockholm in 1979 she traveled around the continent with her parents traveling theater group, all while listening to the American classic soul music.
After writing her first song at the age of 11, after her parents divorce, she got her break when a national talent agent heard her singing during a concert intermission. The rest is history. They got her a record contract which started releasing singles when she was only 16. She started recording her debut album in 1995, and Robyn Is Here quickly topped the Swedish charts. When the album was released in the U.S. almost a year and a half later that first single "Do You Know(What It Takes) hit the Top Ten.
Since that release she has been kicking ass and taking names all across this great country of ours. If you don't have her new album. Go get it immediately!
