We’ve always thought Robyn’s vocals convey a certain weathered soulfulness (and Keri Hilson kind of agrees with us). And just as all of us Robyn stans suspected, she wraps that voice beautifully around Alicia’s heart-breaking R&B balladry.
Robyn also performed her bittersweet club monster “Dancing On My Own”. We have to wonder whether Robyn will be adding the cover to her set list when she heads out on the All Hearts tour with Kelis, on her own dates or at the Pitchfork Music Festival — not that we’d, you know, ask her to.
