ALBUM REVIEW — ROBYN

Robyn

Body Talk PT. 1

(Cherrytree/Interscope)

Swedish dance diva Robyn has had a wild career. She scored a pair of hits in the mid-’90s before disappearing for almost a dozen years. In 2008, she returned with a self-titled album that reinvented the chirpy singer as a smack-talking dance android with a batch of monster hooks at her side. On the brief (30 minutes) follow-up album Body Talk PT. 1, she’s no more human or any less awesome. And she’s still sassy, rhyming “Don’t Fucking Tell Me What to Do” over a staccato beat that sounds straight outta 1983. But she’s more at home in “Fembot,” a beeping club jam that completely absorbs and embraces her hip-pop robot persona (“I’ve got some news for you/Fembots have feelings too,” she sings). Body Talk PT. 1 is the first release in a trilogy of records due this year. Are you ready for the big chill?
