Kelsea Ballerini returns with new single & music video ‘homecoming queen?’

Just last weekend the country-pop star played BBC Radio 2’s Live In Hyde Park. 

Two-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum songstress Kelsea Ballerini released her new single and music video entitled homecoming queen?. Kelsea also played a huge show at BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park on 15 September.

Backed by delicate acoustic guitar and a steady backbeat, intimate verses peel away a seemingly perfect prom queen veneer before the “elegant songwriter” (The New York Times) delivers a powerful and poetic reminder, “Not everything pretty sparkles and shines—and even the homecoming queen cries” (co-written by Ballerini, Nicolle Galyon, and Jimmy Robbins).

In the emotionally charged music video, Kelsea sits on a chair in an empty dressing room. From there, motion control allows for a seamless 360-degree panorama as Kelsea’s world transitions from the star people see on stage to the vulnerable real person who is behind closed-doors. Award-winning director Shane Drake (“Miss Me More”) was again tapped by Ballerini to bring this vision to life.
