When Swedish pop star Robyn hit the scene — and the charts — in 1995 with her debut, the music landscape was in transition. Grunge was petering out, female-led R&B was in, and pop music took a reluctant backseat to a formidable cursing Canadian by the name of Alanis Morrisette. In other words, shit was weird.
Flash forward 24 years and Robyn still finds herself in a perpetual state of a renaissance, and is as relevant as ever (if for no other reason than resisting the very machine that made her). Last year found the 40-year-old pop maven pushing the critically acclaimed Honey, her first record since 2010's Body Talk, which houses the shimmering self-confidence booster “Dancing on My Own” — and now, she's paying a rare visit to Detroit.
The “Call Your Girlfriend” singer squeezed in a couple of one-off dates in between her international festival circuit stops, including a performance on Oct. 8 at the Masonic Temple — making Robyn's first metro Detroit appearance since 2011.
