For those who don’t know who Neneh Cherry is, she’s a Swedish singer/rapper who scored a massive hit, “Buffalo Stance,” back in 1988. The 49-year-old resurfaces with her first album in 18 years.

Not only is she back, but she’s enlisted her fellow countrywoman for a hot collaboration. “Out Of The Black” pairs Cherry with the phenomenal Robyn. It’s the lead cut off Cherry’s Blank Project. While I can’t see the track becoming a commercial hit, it’s great to hear new material from Neneh. Give it a listen below.

Listen To Kings of Leon’s Wicked Robyn Cover

In: Donovan, Music

What can I say, BBC Radio 1 are on a roll with their Live Lounge series. Some of their recent highlights include Ellie Goulding covering Justin Timberlake and Robin Thicke taking on Icona Pop. Just this week, Bastille did a phenomenal job with their acoustic Miley-Billy Ray Cyrus mashup. Now it’s Kings of Leon’s turn to blow us out of the proverbial water.

The Grammy winning American rock band were on hand to promote their latest single, “Supersoaker.” As is the norm for all visiting musical acts, a cover of another contemporary artist is mandatory. The Nashville quartet choose Sweden’s favorite pop diva, Robyn. The southern rockers give her dance hit, “Dancing On My Own,” their usual blues awesomeness. It elevates the lyrics to a whole new emotional level. Give it a listen below.

Robyn Releases Music Video For Three Year Old Track

In: Donovan, Music

Better late than never I say. Three years after the fact “U Should Know Better” appeared on Robyn’s Body Talk album, a music video has finally surfaced. The track is so old, Snoop Lion is still credited as Snoop Dogg. Why release a visual now? Here’s what the 34-year-old Swede revealed.

“Even though “U Should Know Better” was released a couple of years back on Body Talk Pt 2, I wanted to make this video now anyway because the song is still banging and we had too much fun with this video idea to just sit on it.” – Robyn

The idea she’s referring to shows Robyn and Snoop in a parallel universe as different genders. The two artists never actually appear in the clip, but rather boy and girl lookalikes stand in for them. The new Robyn is a teen boy with a bowl cut while female Snoop is a horticulturist rocking out braids and adidas attire.

The concept came from Robyn and longtime stylist/choreographer Decida (“Dancing On My Own“). Watch the two doppelgängers ride and die together in a Volvo. It’s a cute video for one of the best unreleased tracks from Robyn’s Body Talk era. Definitely worth a watch.

On paper it sounds like another Funny or Die clip, doesn’t it? “Go Kindergarten” is actually a legit music video from The Lonely Island lifted off The Wack Album- their third studio one. To be fair, the group is a comedy hip hop trio that features Andy Samberg and his SNL writers, so in essence it could be classified as a spoof.

Overall, it’s a ridiculous clip where best friends Sean Combs and Paul Rudd go to da club for a bro night out. From the lyrics which includes gems like “Ladies, whip your dick out!,” to the dancing, everything is on the verge of cringe worthy. The one saving grace is the awesomeness that is Robyn.

The Swedish pop queen is everything in the clip with her assortment of headwear and signature eclectic wardrobe. Too bad the entire song wasn’t just comprised of all her parts. Any new material from her I’ll welcome with open arms. Even this abysmal mess. Right, Robyn fans? Watch the clip below.

Album Review: Girls Volume 1 Soundtrack

In: Matt, Music, TV Shows

One of our most favorite shows returns to HBO this Sunday and I could NOT be more excited. To coincide with the beginning of its second season, Girls has released a soundtrack compilation filled with songs from the most memorable moments of season one, and a few sneak peaks into season two. The album is an eclectic mix that is perfectly reflective of the show itself.

The album opens up with one of my favorite songs, and best moments of season one. Robyn’s “Dancing on My Own” was the perfect song choice for Hannah and Marnie’s dance break after Hannah learns her ex-boyfriend Elijah (Andrew Rannelis) is gay. An amazing scene and probably where I started to fall in love with the show. Next up is a new song from the band fun. which will appear in season two.

Watch Katy Perry’s SNL Promos

In: TV Shows, Tyrell, Videos

This Saturday, Katy Perry is set to host SNL. While some musicians who have hosted the live show before opt to also play musical guest, Katy bowed out and is letting Homorazzi favorite Robyn take the stage. Only fitting seeing as the two toured together on her Teenage Dreams tour.

Katy has been having quite the banner year so why not wrap it all up in a bow by hosting SNL. We know Katy can be funny. We saw her comedy fashion when she donned a low cut Elmo t-shirt and bounced her boobs around with Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph. But, can she handle the roll of host?

In four new promos for this weekend’s gig, Katy teams up with Kenan Thompson to garner some viewers. While these promos are never amazing, Katy definitely appears more humorous than Thompson and even does an uncanny impression of her husband, Russell Brand. Watch all four promos back-to-back below.

Erato Covers Robyn’s “Call Your Girlfriend”

In: Music, Tyrell, Videos

Wow wow wow. I have to admit, I impress pretty easy but it takes a lot to blow me away. This would be one of those times where I am. The girls above are Erato and they’re a girl vocal group from Sweden. These gals have the most amazing voices and blend so well together. However, a video of three of the members is making some serious rounds on the internet causing them to go absolutely viral.

Members Ebba Lovisa Andersson, Amanda Wikström and Petra Brohäll take Robyn’s Call Your Girlfriend to a whole other level when they blend in some of the best three part harmony I’ve ever heard while playing the cup game to keep rhythm throughout the entire performance. I wonder how long it took them to synchronize the cups all together?

I watched this video with Patrick last night and I was amazed by these ladies. This is what singing is all about. Now, I want to hear more from them. Robyn watched the video and retweeted it with a “High five.” You’ll see why when you watch the video. Check it out below.
