Robyn

Robin Miriam Carlsson (born 12 June 1979), better known by her stage name Robyn, is a Swedish recording artist. Robyn became known in the late nineties for her worldwide dance-pop hit "Do You Know (What It Takes)" from her debut album Robyn Is Here (1997). The popularity of her U.K. #1 song "With Every Heartbeat" and subsequent international album release Robyn (2005) in 2007 brought her mainstream success worldwide.[according to whom?] Robyn released the first of a trilogy of albums to be released over the course of 2010 titled Body Talk Pt. 1, in June of that year, peaking at number one. It was her first album since Robyn. The album's lead single "Dancing on My Own" was released a few weeks prior to the album's release; it became a hit single worldwide and earned her a Grammy Award nomination for the category of Best Dance Recording in 2011. A follow-up album, Body Talk Pt. 2, was released on 6 September, entering straight at number one on the Swedish chart, and the final album of the trilogy, Body Talk, was released on 22 November 2010 with lead single "Indestructible". "Call Your Girlfriend" was the second single to be released from Body Talk. Robyn sings soprano.


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.
