Satan i gatan (Swedish for Satan in the Street, a rhyming, idiomatic expression of mild surprise) is the third studio album released by Swedish singer and songwriter Veronica Maggio. It was released in Sweden on 27 April 2011 through Universal Music AB and debuted at number one. The title is a Swedish expression which generally means "damn". The album follows on from her 2006 debut Vatten & bröd and her 2008 follow-up Och vinnaren är.... The album was recorded and produced by Maggio in the studio of Christian Walz in Östermalm, Stockholm. Maggio wrote all the lyrics, a process that took almost a year, whereas all music was written by Christian Waz, except for "Vi kommer alltid ha Paris" the music of which was composed by Markus Krunegård.

The album contains eleven tracks, with a bonus track available via iTunes called "Vad gör vi ikväll", a song written by Maggio, Walz and Krunegård. Also on 18 April 2011, Maggio invited Maggio fans to download the song "Välkommen in" from the album through the telephone operator Comviq. The song "Alla mina låtar" (meaning All my songs) resulted in speculation among music reviewers as being a response to her former boyfriend Oskar Linnros song "Från och med du" (meaning "Starting [with] you", a play of words on the phrase "Starting now") when Linnros had sung "... one is broken, one is yours, this is the end of our movie." Maggio counters this with singing "You are crushed and I go free, it's all about you".

The song "Välkommen in" incorporates lyrics from Lucio Battisti's "La canzone del Sole".

Chart performance[edit]

The album debuted at the top of the Swedish Sverigetopplistan albums chart on May 6. It has remained at number one for two more weeks. First single "Jag kommer" debuted at number sixteen on the Sverigetopplistan Singles Chart on 18 February. It rose to number four next week and then began to drop down the rankings. With the release of the album, the single recorded a new peak of number one on May 6. The release of the album also saw ten further tracks chart, based on downloads only in Sweden. "Satan i gatan" has peaked at number two; "Snälla bli min" at number six; "Mitt hjärta blöder" at number five; "Välkommen in" at eleven; "Inga kläder" at twelve; "Vi kommer alltid ha Paris" and "Sju sorger" at eighteen; "Alla mina låtar" at #24; "Finns det en så finns det flera" at #27; and "Lördagen den femtonde mars" at number thirty.[1][2]
