Kelsea Ballerini Reveals Lyric Video for New Single ‘Dibs’
Kelsea Ballerini has quickly gained a following in country music (her fans even include country-turned-pop superstar Taylor Swift!), and she's responding to the frenzy in the best way: by putting out more music. Ballerini has revealed the lyric video for her forthcoming single, "Dibs."
Just like the catchy song, the lyric video is sweet and relatively simple. All of the song's lyrics are in a maze-type setup, and the camera pans through them, twisting and turning to show the correct words. Bright colors, scrolling fonts, flowers and hearts provide some visual interest, but the real focus is the song: "Make everybody jealous / When I take you off the market / And get my lipstick on your right cheek / 'Cause boy I've got to mark it."
"Dibs" is the follow-up single to Ballerini's smash hit "Love Me Like You Mean It," which hit No. 1 and set a new record as the first the first debut single from a solo female artist to top the chart since Carrie Underwood's "Jesus, Take the Wheel" in 2006. The song will officially drop as a single July 20.
"Dibs" and "Love Me Like You Mean It" are on Ballerini's debut record, The First Time, which was released on May 19. The album is full of songs that display the confidence shown in her debut single, and "Dibs" is a nod to Ballerini's ever-effervescent personality.
"... My whole album, I really wanted to have that theme of confidence in a girl, and being okay with who you are, and talking about heartbreak, and talking about all those things but trying to make it positive," she says, "and so with that mindset, it helped me narrow down songs for the album."
