    Her drinking is killing her. Her manager’s killing her. Her e-mail’s killing her. For full litany of what is killing Swedish dance-pop badass Robyn, consult snarling single “Don’t F*&^ing Tell Me What to Do,” the most floor-ready tantrum ever committed to digital.

    The single was just one of many reasons that 2010 was a banner year for the former innocuous pop star (remember “Show Me Love” in 1997? Yes you do!). 2010 marked the release of Body Talk Pt. 1 (of the aforementioned single) and Body Talk Pt. 2. They were the irresistible beginnings of her envisioned album trilogy and the catchiest, most nuanced club records of the year. The concluding chapter streets on November 22.

    Yesterday, the Stockholm phenom announced her Stateside victory lap: she’ll perform at Radio City Music Hall on February 5, 2011. Tickets go on sale this Friday, with presale launching Wednesday.

    We’re very excited about this; it’ll be a long winter ‘til then. Coincidentally, February 5 is exactly the day you’ll forgive us for sticking “Show Me Love” back in your head.
