Kelsea Ballerini is again, and she or he’s breaking hearts along with her new music “Homecoming Queen?”
Produced by Jimmy Robbins, and co-written with Robbins and Nicolle Galyon, “Homecoming Queen?” tugs on the heartstrings.
On it, she sings, “But what if I told you the world wouldn’t end/ If you started showing what’s under your skin/ What if you let em all in on the lie/ Even the homecoming queen cries.”
The mild nation ballad is accompanied with a Shane Drake-directed music video during which Ballerini strips away all of the make-up and the flamboyant garments to disclose her honest-to-goodness self. All of it ends in tears.
Talking to CMT.com about her new music, Ballerini defined, “Everyone’s human. It’s important for people to know that we’re all allowed to break down, we’re allowed to have bad days, and we don’t always have thick skin.”
