The Zurich-born artist and producer Xzavier Stone, who collaborated over the last year with artists like DÆMON, Paxslim, Modulaw or Loraine James returns with a bouncy crooner, alongside Swiss vocalist Heggi.

In the Alvaro Kreyden directed music video Xzavier Stone​​​​​​​ and Heggi are in their feelings as they serenade to an imaginary love interest. By embracing insecurities in a playful and light-hearted manner, the duo taps into late 90s R&B dynamics with a dramatic performance throughout the music video. The ever-evolving song structures are being highlighted by distinctive light settings, choice of camera angles and lush imagery. »2SHY« is another example of Xzavier Stone’s ability to create a sentiment, that feels up-to-the-time, yet nostalgic in some ways – the powerful music video amplifies this even further.
