I was 11 years old in 1997 when Robyn’s song “Show Me Love” was one of the biggest, most popular songs in the country. It was all over the radio and when me and my best friend at the time got together, we would put the CD in and dance around her bedroom as the song played on repeat. Those were the days, right?
Robyn didn’t put out a second album until 2005, and by that point most everyone had pretty much forgotten about her. Such is the entertainment industry.
Her third album didn’t come out until 2010, and it took me until now to hear a couple of tracks from it while listening to my new favorite Spotify playlist.
Why have I not listened to Robyn's Body Talk album until NOW!? Shame on me. Seriously.

Robyn’s album “Body Talk” is one of the most diverse offerings of pop music, and exactly what I would expect to hear from the Robyn I remember dancing in my girlfriend’s bedroom to as a tween.
Robyn is also a pretty great person on a purely human level. In 1999, she traveled the world for two years as a UNICEF ambassador.
I love hearing when celebrities I adore have committed themselves to doing good in the world, and that is precisely what Robyn has done; on top of once again creating music that makes me want to dance all over the house.

I love robyn! I have this album and listen to it regularly!
I have never heard of her before but I listened and liked the Show Me Love song.
Sounds like something I would listen to as a teenager, or just work out to since its upbeat.
I like her music and love that she worked with UNICEF! Ill share. 🙂
Maybe its my computer but i cannot play the music.. I would like to hear how she sounds.
Love getting new ideas, thanks! Will check some of these out.
Oh my gosh, I used to love Robyn’s first CD! Show Me Love was my jam!! I never knew she put out other albums! Going to check it out – thanks!!
I’m so glad that I could get someone as excited as I was when I discovered her newer albums. Enjoy!
Robyn is awesome. I wish she was more famous here in the US
RIGHT!? She is pretty incredible, and yet the US doesn’t really care. It’s so unfortunate. She deserves a lot more recognition than she has.
Thanks so much for sharing LOVING all of this music!
I always wondered what happened to her! I wonder why she went so long before putting out a second album? I like her sound.
Very cool, I hadn’t heard the songs before but I like how I was able to listen and learn some history!
First time I hear about her. Too bad Spotify doesn’t work in Ecuador. She seems like a great person and I would have loved to hear her music.
I remember skating to Show Me Love at the skating rink! Memories!
