Body Talk
Label: Cherrytree/Interscope
Release Date: 2010-12-08
Rated: NONE
Genre: Recording

In “Call Your Girlfriend,” the girl, who earlier this year was “Dancing on My Own” and pleading for a reliable fuck buddy in “Hang With Me,” finally gets the last laugh. Now if only she could get the object of her affection to grow a pair and tell his girlfriend what he just confided in Robyn. Either way, her declaration of “You and me together, stars forever” sounds like a victory lap at the end of a year that’s seen three new releases by the Swedish electro-pop singer. Body Talk, the album, follows a pair of EPs that have the same name. The best cuts from the earlier records are repeated here: “Fembot,” “Don’t Fucking Tell Me What to Do,” “Dancing on My Own,” and “Hang With Me.” The five new songs — including “Call Your Girlfriend” and the ebullient “Get Myself Together” — pledge love that’s as indestructible as the woman who’s singing them.
