Shaylen will kick off the new year with the release of her single, “Been There Before,” an anthem that reflects on the ebbs and flows of dating and trying to find your perfect partner amidst all the chaos, on Jan. 5.
Co-written alongside Andrew Baylis, Michael Whitworth and Nick Bailey, Shaylen gets it all off her chest in the cathartic track. The song follows her most recent single,”Cowboys Never Cry” (Nov. 10), and her collaboration with former Hinder frontman Austin John Winkler on the country-infused rendition of “Lips Of An Angel.”
“I finally got to write the dating anthem for my early 20s,” Shaylen says. “It was an incredible day working with some of my faves – Baylis, Michael and Nick are some of my favorite humans ever and creating this song with them was so fun. We literally just talked about all the crazy dating scenarios you go through as a girl in her early 20s and got to put it in one song. And that’s on healing toxic patterns baby!”
After spending 10 years in Los Angeles as a pop artist with Republic Records, the Chattanooga native found it was her time to come home and moved into the country space. Her debut country single “What If I Don’t” broke 10 million streams on Spotify, and her single “Do It Right The First Time” gained over 725K TikTok views and caught the ear of Kelly Clarkson, who featured Shaylen in her “#What I’m Liking” segment on NBC’s The Kelly Clarkson Show. Within the first week of release, “Do It Right The First Time” reached No. 34 on the iTunes Country Charts with over 500K streams across DSPs, and was added to several playlists on Spotify and Apple Music.
