(Konichiwa/Universal)
Mall music just got more interesting. The North American release of the Swedish bubblegum-pop singer’s dance album was the same week as Madonna’s Hard Candy, but it’s years ahead in style and sass. Although Robyn’s hair and balls-out confidence is sadly reminiscent of a young, scrubbed-down Pink, there’s a sincerity Spears and Stefani never mastered. With high kicks and slow beats, Robyn boasts, “I fill my cups no need to supersize them” in “Galang”-friendly “Konichiwa Bitches,” then messes with radio-friendly ballad “Handle Me,” by calling her man “a selfish narcissistic psycho freaking bootlicking Nazi creep.”
