Too many good releases will be hitting the shelves and the web shops tomorrow, or how about Nicki Minaj’s debut album “Pink Friday”, KanYe West’s masterpiece “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” and of course Robyn’s third and final part in the “Body Talk” album-series “Body Talk pt.3″.
And the third part must be the best one of them all as the album features five of the best songs from pt. 1 and 2 as well as five new ones, all creating Robyn’s best work yet.
Among the five brand new ones there’s the beautiful ‘Call Your Girlfriend’ which apply to the former men in my life in so many ways it’s absolute ridic, the first listen I actually started to cry. Yes, been there, too many times, being that other woman that is, having the conversation about him getting things straight with the girlfriend:
Robyn’s also back working with Max Martin (who did her smash hit ‘Show Me Love’) on ‘Time Machine’ but the track that caught most of my attention is actually the iTunes-bonus, a remix by Diplo and Stenchman featuring the mighty Spoek Mathambo of THE best track from the first part, the brilliant ‘Dancehall Queen’:
Speaking off Spoek for that matter, he finished off his North American Tour Friday’s together with his live band Mshini Wam (Richard The Third- machines, JakobSnake – drums and Nic Van Reenen – guitar) and if you missed out, well here’s a lil’ piece of gold captured on film from when they hit the Red Bull Studio in Cape Town earlier this year:
Also, lookout for Spoek to be featured on ‘The Monkey‘, a track off Adam Tensta’s upcoming album “Scared Of The Dark” which will drop early next year.
