Kelsea Ballerini, ‘Yeah Boy’ [Listen]
Kelsea Ballerini’s "Yeah Boy" is a delectable spoonful of pop-country sugar. The flirty new song from The First Time revisits a theme she leaned into for “Dibs," but doesn't sound like a repeat.
Ballerini has her eyes on a guy, and she’s going after him. There’s something refreshing about her less-than-coy approach to romance. During “Yeah Boy,” Ballerini and her co-writers Forest Glen Whitehead and Keesy Timmer are aggressive, but no less feminine. There's no sense of playing hard to get.
The song opens new doors. It’s a fine representative of the album, and while it’s reliant on similar production and delivery as “Dibs” and “Love Me Like You Mean It,” that fabric has not yet gone bare. Enjoy “Yeah Boy” for what it is: a fun, flirty, contagious young love song that you’ll sing along with, but likely set aside when a new single from her next album comes along.
Did You Know?: One song from Ballerini's new album that she can't wait to hear is called "Graveyard." Watch the video below for more on that project.

Kelsea Ballerini's "Yeah Boy" Lyrics:
“Captured my attention, make my heart stop and listen when you look my way / Blue jeans and a ball cap, thinking that you're all that and I'm thinking the same / You got that something in your eyes, I think about it all the time / If you ever wonder if I wanna make you mine.”
“Yeah boy, I'm digging what you're doing / Yeah boy, I'm trying to keep it cool / But you're making it hard, I'm wishing your arms / Were wrapping me up tight / Yeah boy, you shine and you can't even help it / Yeah boy, your eyes could make the moon jealous / And if you wanna know if I wanna be your girl tonight / Yeah boy.”
“Every song that's playing gets me thinking about you, baby / And the way you roll / So let's put down the drop top, burn a little blacktop / Off of that road / Baby, what we waiting on, the stars are out, the night is young / If you wanna know if I wanna go and get gone.”
“Yeah boy, I wanna take a little ride with you / Yeah boy, I wanna spend a little time with you / Yeah boy, I wanna sip a little wine with you, oh.”
