  • Lyrics
  • The second single by the Swedish singer Robyn from her seventh studio album, Body Talk is a break-up electropop ballad with a twist. It finds the Swedish singer telling her two-timing man to split with his old girlfriend, and advises him on how to do it gently. "Call your girlfriend," she sings. "It's time you had the talk/Give your reasons/Say it's not her fault/But you just met somebody new."
  • Max Vitali directed the song's music video, which features Robyn dancing alone in a vacant warehouse. The clip was shot in a single take. "We didn't know if we were going to be able to do a one-take video when we set out to shoot 'Call Your Girlfriend,'" Robyn told Spinner UK. "However, it turned out great and I'm really happy it did because I think it captures a little bit of what I do when I play live."
