In a 2010 interview, Robyn said: "The whole album is about being really lonely." Perhaps the biggest single from Robyn's 5th studio album, "Dancing On My Own," is about dancing solo dolo in a club while your ex is w/ a new partner grinding away. Sad & lonely, yes, but we've all danced away to tracks on the 8 tracker. The Swedish artist has been in the game since the '90s, and despite label troubles that derailed her career a few times, she endured and dropped Body Talk Pt. 1 in 2010. Effectively pushing an elevated brand of dance/synth pop, she structures melancholy into very danceable rhythms and melodies, and what comes forth is one of the most memorable post-aughts pop releases. It's clear that the LP has aged well, features production from Diplo, Royksopp, and Ahlund. Highlights: "Dancing On My Own," "Hang With Me," "Fembot," and "Dancehall Queen."
