Diana King’s 90’s classic ‘Shy Guy’ is this week’s From The Vault jam. The song was included on both her ‘Tougher Than Love’ album as well as the ‘Bad Boys’ movie soundtrack. ‘Shy Guy’ proved to be Jamaican singer’s biggest hit, peaking at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 and topping several charts around the world including the Official UK Singles Chart where it climbed to #2.
All anybody could do when this song comes on the radio is dance and sing hysterically in traffic. The 90’s era of music all always be remembered as a time when timeless songs such as this were the norm and not the exception. It’s a shame that King did not have further success on the international scene though because she has a phenomenal voice and the looks to match.
