Swedish artist Shy Martin debuts new single “Make Us Never Happen.” The singer-songwriter was inspired to write the song after a real-life relationship that didn’t go as planned.
“A few years ago I fell in love with my best friend, only to realize later that it was a big mistake. By that time, too many things had passed that we couldn’t unsay or undo. Our relationship was short and intense. We both ended up hurt and damaged, desperately trying to figure out why we couldn’t make sense together. The truth really was simple, we didn’t need each other in that way. I don’t like to regret anything, but I hated losing the person I cared about the most, and I hated how we destroyed the friendship we once had when all we wanted was to save each other. It took me a long time to accept that I wouldn’t get my best friend back and that I had to let go.”
This year Shy Martin completed her first European headline tour after dropping on the scene as an impactful songwriter. Shy co-wrote and had vocals featured vocal on Mike Perry’s “The Ocean (ft. SHY Martin),” which was awarded Spotify Sweden’s ‘Most Streamed Song of the Year’ after garnering 600 million streams.
Since then SHY’s songwriting catalog has generated 2.5 billion Spotify streams, with credits on “First Time” by Kygo ft. Ellie Goulding, “(Not) The One” by Bebe Rexha, “All We Know” by The Chainsmokers, “I Wanna Know” by NOTD (ft. Bea Miller), as well as songs for Jess Glynne, Astrid S, and ALMA, and others.
