Sandra Lyng is a Norwegian pop artist that emerged on the scene in her home country at the age of 16. She became well known to the Norwegian audience through her participation in the second season of Norwegian Pop Idol in 2004, and immediately became a popular artist.
The following year she debuted with the collaboration single «Sommerflørt» with the rapper Lille Philip, which topped the Norwegian hit chart in the summer of 2005. The following year Sandra released her second single «I morgen» produced by Stargate. This song was also a big success and peaked at second position on the hit chart. Stargate followed to produce her entire debut album titled «Døgnvill», which was released in 2007. Up until then she had sung all her lyrics in Norwegian.
In the following years Sandra went on several tours throughout Norway, before she took a break from the spotlight and moved to Los Angeles to develop her songwriting skills. In 2013 she returned to her home country with new material written with English lyrics, and released her comeback single, “PRTEY” featuring Swedish rapper Lazee. The single was followed up by the gold selling «Don’t Care» produced by the Norwegian pop group Donkeyboy and Canadian singer-songwriter Kiesza.
In 2015 Sandra collaborated with producer Mood Melodies and fellow songwriter and friend Tooji Keshtka. Together they wrote her biggest success to date, “Play My Drum”, which was certified gold after just four weeks. The song, which has over 20 million streams on Spotify, topped charts in Italy, Finland, France, Norway and Belgium. “Play My Drum” is certified double platinum and is still climbing.
