Robin S

 

Robin S. (born Robin Stone on April 27, 1962) is a singer-songwriter from Queens, New York, United States who scored success in the 1990s with such hit singles as “Show Me Love” (which was her debut single and a #1 Club hit) and “Luv 4 Luv.”

A house diva whose productions use live instrumentation just as much as electronics, Robin S. debuted with the Top Ten hit “Show Me Love.” The Queens, NY native was signed by Big Beat Records in 1993, and debuted with the hot single, which climbed the charts during 1994, and spurred her first album, also titled Show Me Love.

After working on her songwriting for several years, she began recruiting producers such as Eric “E-Smoove” Miller and Todd Terry to work on her second album. Released in 1997 on Atlantic, From Now On reflected broader interests for Robin S., encompassing gospel and ballads in addition to hi-NRG dancefloor material. The album spawned one successful single on the dance charts: “It Must Be Love.”

Robin S. was signed by Big Beat Records in 1994. Her debut single climbed the charts the same year, as did her first album, also titled Show Me Love. The song "Show Me Love" peaked at #1 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play, #1 on the Hot Dance Singles Sales, #7 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles and Tracks and #5 on the Billboard Hot 100. It also peaked at #4 on the Rhythmic Top 40 chart. The success earned her a spot on the 1994 "American Music Awards" as a performer. The follow-up singles, "Love for Love" and "What I Do Best", saw similar success.

After taking time off to work on her songwriting, she began working with producers Eric "E-Smoove" Miller and Todd Terry on her second album. Released in 1997 on Atlantic Records, From Now On reflected broader interests for Robin S., encompassing Gospel and Contemporary R&B ballads in addition to Hi-NRG dance-floor material. The album's first single, "It Must Be Love", became a hit, spending two weeks at #1 on the Hot Dance Club Play chart. It became a moderate crossover hit on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, peaking at #35 and a minor pop hit, peaking at #91 on the Billboard Hot 100. The follow-up single "Midnight" reached #1 on the Hot Dance Club Play, and got better success on the Billboard Top 100, peaking at #35. Robin S. performed the hit on the Ricki Lake show during the week the single hit Top 10 on the U.S. dance charts. She also appeared on the RuPaul show to promote From Now On; the album sold about 100,000 copies in the U.S. by the end of its album's chart run. "Midnight" was written by British singer Alison Moyet and it appears on the first Yazoo album, Upstairs at Eric's. In 1996 she did a song, "Givin You All That I Got", that was played in the movie Space Jam and was featured on the soundtrack.

Robin S. completed a successful European tour in 2004, where her music has historically found a larger audience. She has become a popular performer at 1990s-themed club/dance-pop concerts. As of early 2007, Robin S. was still recording though none of her new material has been released as she is seeking a new record label. Robin S. continued to perform on cruise liners in Europe and Asia.

In 2008, she recorded a new song with the European artist Honest. In October 2008, the radio mix of her 1993 song "Show Me Love" reached the top of the Dutch Top 40. That made it Robin S.'s most successful song in the Netherlands. In 2009, she recorded new song with Corey Gibbons, the single "At My Best".

On August 12, 2011, Robin S. appeared on the BET talk program The Mo'Nique Show, where she sang her number #1 hit, "Show Me Love".

A Swedish pop star who blends the gritty sound of American urban R&B with the sunny pop of her homeland.

Robyn found a hit with "Do You Know (What It Takes)," which hit the Top Ten around the world including the U.S. Born Robyn Carlsson in Stockholm in 1979, she traveled around the continent with her parents' traveling theatre group, also listening to classic American soul on the hi-fi.

After writing her first song at the age of 11 when her parents divorced, Robyn got her break when national talent Meja heard her singing during a concert intermission.

Meja got her a record contract with Sweden's Richochet Records, which released her first hit single "Do You Really Want Me." Though she was still only 16, Robyn began 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, the single "Do You Know (What It Takes)" hit the Top Ten.
