Out now from Sweden’s Cy: ‘Don’t Sleep With My Ex’.
Heartbreakingly, it seems there’s a real life story behind this song, which Cy aka Amanda Cygnaeus wrote as a cathartic outpouring when she found out her ex and her best friend had become a couple. Ouch. On the plus side, she got a banging pop song out of the whole nasty business.
“I was a ticking bomb when I came to the studio that day and all of my anger and confusion just exploded into this song. It’s not about me hating on someone’s relationship, but rather about feeling betrayed by a close friend. Whenever I’m wondering if I’m exaggerating and being petty about two people finding love, I go back and listen to this song. It makes me remember that some things you might not be able to forgive, and that’s okay.”
