The musical collective Robyn & La Bagatelle Magique, sometimes known as La Bagatelle Magique, also includes Markus Jägerstedt on keyboards and the late Christian Falk as producer. Growing up in a setting where her parents were the directors of an independent theater company inspired Robyn’s sense of style. The two younger siblings of Robyn. Olof Inger and Robyn started dating in 2002, and they were engaged from 2009 until 2011.
Later, she and filmmaker Max Vitali were engaged, and she referred to him as her fiancé in an interview with Collection of Style magazine in 2013. After the release of Body Talk, she and Vitali went their separate ways for a while, but by 2018, they were back together. Max Martin’s pop music career was greatly aided by her breakthrough Robyn Is Here, which also increased demand for “white girl R&B singers, from Mandy Moore to Billie Piper.”
Career & Projects
In June 2015 was the release of their debut song, “Love Is Free,” which includes Maluca. The band’s Love Is Free EP, which included the songs “Lose Control,” “Set Me Free,” and a rendition of Arthur Russell’s 1983 classic “Tell You Today,” was published on August 7, 2015.
In her first EP with the up-and-coming band La Bagatelle Magique, which she co-founded with her keyboardist Markus Jägerstedt and the late producer and seasoned Swedish club musician Christian Falk, Robyn is direct in what she demands of you (and herself).
Focusing on the beauty of ultimately letting go, both physically and mentally, is what Love Is Free achieves so effectively and so simply. Robyn turned the dance floor into her therapy couch on 2014’s Do It Again and 2010’s Body Talk, singing of breakups, feeling like a broken cyborg, and all the garbage that was killing her over addicting electro-pop.
The kind of warm trust that permeates Robyn’s music is precisely a result of her damaged but tenacious knowledge, developed over the course of her 20-year career as a composer and performer.
