Robyn, Mapei collaborate on cover of Neneh Cherry’s ‘Buffalo Stance’

Robyn has recruited Mapei for a cover of Neneh Cherry’s “Buffalo Stance.”

The Swedish pop star offers up a slinky, stunning take of Cherry’s hit track. The soulful rendition was partially produced by Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes. On the cover, Robyn also recruits Mapei for a pop-rap crossover. The Scandipop cover sees the pair slowing down the hit track and offering up an icy shimmer. Neneh Cherry was actually one of the first people to hear the cover.

“I love that I could write an essay with all the things I could say about Robyn and I love that she leaves me speechless at the same time,” Neneh Cherry explains. “Her talent is soulful because she leads with her heart and spirit, she is absolutely there, ever present with honest intensity in her offerings which leave me blubbering with hairs standing erect on my arms and legs, dancing on my own talking to myself with a feeling that everything is going to be alright.”

“The first time I saw Robyn live in Stockholm with my daughter Mabel (then a young struggling teenager) she only said two things that night: ‘Hej Stockholm’ and in the middle of a sound shouted out ‘MABEL!’ Mabel was so happy I had tears streaming down my cheeks,” Cherry adds. “Robyn gave everything and when she needed a pick-me-up she ate a banana… she stole my heart.”
