Body Talk Pt. 2
Album lyrics Robyn

Release date: September 2010

Body Talk Pt. 2 is the Sixth Album by Swedish recording artist Robyn. It was released in Scandinavia on 6 September 2010 and a day later in the United States. It is the second part of the Body Talk series, which consists of three mini-albums.

In an interview with Swedish magazine Bon, Robyn announced that she had plans to release three new albums in 2010. She said, "I got all these great songs so why not? [...] It's been 5 years since Robyn and I didn't want to wait with a release until they are all recorded, so I decided to start putting them out right away." Robyn told Popjustice journalist Peter Robinson, "It's been a long time since I actually made a record! And I was thinking of how to shorten that time down and Eric, my manager, came up with the idea of what if I just start releasing songs, then I can tour them, then I can make some more songs. We started working like that. I think once it starts it will make more sense – you can just keep releasing stuff without the long breaks."

The album was preceded by the release of the single, "Hang with Me", on 16 August 2010.

In an interview with Billboard Robyn spoke about the collaborations on Body Talk Pt. 2. Speaking of the song "U Should Know Better", featuring American rapper Snoop Dogg, she said: "It's a great song...that I worked on for a couple of years. It was really cool to be able to be in the studio with him, first because I always was a fan but also because he was really creative and we had so much of an exchange in being there together, both as vocalists. I had an idea and he really got it and got into it, which was awesome. I think it puts Snoop where he's supposed to be, which is some place that's very gangsta." Robyn worked with Swedish electronic duo Savage Skulls on the song "Love Kills": "these really young guys who are part of a scene that I probably would've gotten into if I wasn't away so much when I was younger. There's this dance club, kind of hardcore dance scene in Stockholm that's really interesting to me and they're a part of it."

Body Talk Pt. 2 received mostly favorable reviews from music critics. It debuted at number one in Sweden and Denmark, and at number three in Norway. In the US the album debuted at number forty-one on the Billboard 200- her highest position on the chart, selling 8,000 copies in its first week. It also charted on the Dance/Electronic Albums chart at number two, behind Lady Gaga's The Fame. In its second week on the Billboard 200 chart, the album fell to number 200, making it Robyn's first album since Robyn Is Here to spend more than one week on the chart. The album debuted at number thirty-eight on the UK Albums Chart, selling 3,602 copies in its first week.
