Up-and-coming pop artist Shaylen dropped the music video for her single, “Sorry.” The track follows her initially released single, “Own Way.” Both songs can be found on her debut EP Highs and Lows. Shaylen offers powerful vocals and lyrics that truly give a glimpse into her life.
“‘Sorry’ is very personal to me,” she said of the track. “It’s all about my struggle with addiction and overcoming it and being honest with myself and the ones I loved. The busyness and chaos of the city felt appropriate to how I was feeling at that time in my life and gave the exact vibe of where I wanted to film the video.”
Shaylen was blessed to be able to create this beautiful song through working with legendary producers Keith Varon (Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix, Zara Larsson) and Boston. Previously, her talent enabled her to work with the highly acclaimed producer Jonas Jeberg (Selena Gomez, Panic! At The Disco) for her debut single, “Own Way.” Her ability to share the intimate parts of her life through music is truly what will make her successful and unique as an artist.
Shaylen is originally from Dallas, Texas and stepped into the music industry when she joined the music group Savvy. At that time, entertainment was all about being a triple threat. The group acted, sang, and danced across the state and were even given an opportunity to star in a reality television series. However, Shaylen quickly went from having a decent monetary backbone to nothing at all. She found herself having to bar tend all week in order to save up and move out to Los Angeles.
While she was gearing up for her professional career, Shaylen tried to cope with the ever changing landscape that is entertainment. She saw a shift in the importance of social media and gaining a following, which led her to post her original music and covers on video applications like Vine. Fast forward a few years and Shaylen earned her way into a contract with Republic Records.
The artist is aiming for 2020 to be her year as she works hard to create meaning pop ballads. You can stream her debut EP Highs and Lows on all streaming platforms.
