Robyn Does Right By iHeartRadio, Rocks “Hang With Me” Live
“Hang With Me” initially crept into our lives as a melancholy acoustic piece tucked amid the transcendent next-level pop epics on Robyn’s Body Talk Pt. 1. As you’ve surely noticed, it’s back, reinvented as a shimmery (and just slightly more hopeful) revved-up dance jam, as the first single from her forthcoming Pt. 2. But for her recent promo show for a lucky iheartradio crowd, the Swedish fembot sang a heart-rending version mostly taken from the original. Watch below — and don’t get all sniffly.
Robyn’s rendition of the song (written by her frequent collaborator Klas Ahlund and previously performed by his ex-wife, Paola Bruna), begins with a near acapella performance that showcases her precision-tuned vocals, but eventually hints at the soon-to-be club-jam we now know and love.
She really does love Rosie Perez — she told us so. And us? We are reckless, headlessly in love with her.
