Kelsea Ballerini's New Song 'Miss Me More' Will Have an Amazing Hook

Kelsea Ballerini's New Song 'Miss Me More' Will Have an Amazing Hook

Kelsea Ballerini will be dropping a brand new song from her sophomore album tonight called “Miss Me More”.

Not much is known about the track, except that it’s in the “Loss” section of the album.

However, JJJ did a little digging and it looks like Kelsea‘s new song has a hook that you won’t be able to get out of your mind.

While speaking with Vulture about outside influences for Unapologetically, Kelsea dished that rap music was one of them and you can hear it on this song.

“I think another thing was getting really comfortable with having outside influences on this record. I love rap music. I think that country music and rap music are lyrically genius in very different ways, but [both] lyrically clever,” she says. “I’m obsessed with the patterns and the rhythms of rap.”

Kelsae added, “I love that you can have hooks that you have to sing at the top of your lungs for it to really matter, like ‘Miss Me More.’”

Whatever “Miss Me More” does sound like, we’re pretty sure we’ll be obsessed with it.

Stay tuned for the stream!

Singer Kelsea Ballerini's First Career Plan Was Much, Much Different Then Her Career Now

Singer Kelsea Ballerini's First Career Plan Was Much, Much Different Then Her Career Now

No one actually believes that you can just go into the music industry and make it, just like that — not even Kelsea Ballerini.

In fact, she had another career already planned out before she got her record deal — a veterinarian!

“I was from Knoxville and I always thought I was going to stay there and be a vet,” she told Parade magazine. “I didn’t think that you could just choose to be a singer and go pursue it and be [the next] Carrie Underwood.”

But it all changed when she did just that.

After it all happened, Kelsea had a clear plan for what kind of musician she wanted to be — an honest one.

“I decided that I wanted to be the same person on my albums as I was on social media as I was out to dinner with my mom as I was out having a glass of wine with my friends,” Kelsea says. “I wanted there to be a consistency between artist and person.”

“I think that I tried to write this album that way too, just being very open and honest.”

Kelsea‘s new album, Unapologetically, is out on November 3rd.

FYI: Kelsea is wearing a PrettyLittleThing sweater.

Kelsea Ballerini Vows to 'Love Harder' in Wake of Las Vegas Mass Shooting

Dozens of celebrities have taken to social media to mourn the lives lost in Las Vegas and to urge policy change to stop terrorism on such a large scale from happening again.

Kelsea Ballerini penned a beautiful note late last night that many people across the world will resonate with.

“Still having trouble processing yesterday,” she wrote, “Because it’s not the kind of hate anyone should ever be able to process, understand, or accept. Felt numb, then felt scared, then just incredibly sad.”

Despite the feeling of helplessness and hopelessness, she is using the tragedy to be a better person.

“I’m going to make 58 people smile and be seen today,” Kelsea promised. “I am going to challenge myself to love harder. Because right now, that’s what I can do to make the world a little happier. They deserve that. We all do.”

Kelsea Ballerini's Upcoming Album 'Unapologetically' Has Three Sections To It: Loss, Life & Love

Kelsea Ballerini gets in her glam shot before her cute performance on The Ellen Show in Los Angeles this week.

The country singer recently spoke with TIME about her forthcoming album, Unapologetically, coming out in November.

“The album actually goes in three sections: we’re calling it loss, life, and love,” Kelsea reveals, on top of that chronological order. “That’s the easy way to split it up.”

She adds, “I put [newest single] ‘High School‘ in ‘life,’ because it’s not necessarily about the boy that the song is referring to: it’s about that moment when you realize you’ve outgrown your young self. You’ve changed, and you’ve evolved and you don’t fit somewhere anymore.”
