Dancehall Queen

Album: Body Talk Pt 1 (2010)
  • Robyn wrote this Caribbean-flavoured track with M.I.A. and Santigold collaborator Diplo, who came to Sweden to work with the Swedish singer-songwriter and her frequent songwriting partner Klas Åhlund. She recalled to Stereogum: "We were talking about Ace of Base and we were just having fun with that kind of genre music. And the idea of making this song came out of that discussion. It was fun. We really connected on something where music that you might put in one box becomes something else, depending on how you look at it."
