U Should Know Better by Robyn
Album: Body Talk Pt 2Released: 2010
This track is a duet with West Coast rapper Snoop Dogg, who delivers what Robyn describes as a "very gangsta" performance.
Robyn explained to MTV UK that she hooked up with Snoop in LA, "because we wanted to get in the studio properly after we did the Sensual Seduction
remix. It was exciting because I'm a big fan and he's really into music." She added: "We were in the studio for three days together and Snoop is a funny guy, super-chilled and really down to earth."
The song's music video was filmed in London and sees a female mini Snoop Dogg lookalike befriend a male Robyn mini doppelganger. "In a parallel universe Snoop and Robyn ride or die in a Volvo," tweeted the Swedish singer about the clip. Robyn makes a cameo appearance at 2:20, where she pops up playing the mother of her little-boy look-alike.
Speaking with Billboard magazine, Robyn recalled the experience of working with Snoop Dogg, stating, "It was really cool to be able to be in the studio with him, first because I always was a fan but also because he was really creative and we had so much of an exchange in being there together, both as vocalists. I had an idea and he really got it and got into it, which was awesome."
