Ballerini gets "Lost in Japan"
Wednesday, January 16, 2019
– Kelsea Ballerini released a new take on Shawn Mendes' pop smash, "Lost In Japan" to Spotify along with her single "Miss Me More."
Recorded in Nashville at Sound Stage Studios, the Spotify Singles are available now.
"When Shawn's record came out, 'Lost In Japan' immediately was my favorite," said Ballerini. "I love the soft, flirty nature of the lyrics and thought it would be fun to put a stripped, country feel to it."
"Miss Me More" is Ballerini's fasting rising single and is on her sophomore disc, "Unapologetically."
Next week, Ballerini hits the road with Kelly Clarkson to kick off Clarkson's Meaning of Life Tour starting Jan. 24 in Oakland, CA. Headlining her first-ever arena tour, Ballerini will also launch The Miss Me More Tour on April 11 in Salisbury, MD.

Some of that star power exceeds musical gifts - Ballerini has that insta-charm that makes her a ready TV guest or host. She's from Tennessee and smiles for miles. But she also gives off a wiser, worldlier vibe than many others of her ...
"Why do we need you? There's already a Taylor Swift." So said a Nashville record executive to a teenage Kelsea Ballerini. It undoubtedly stung at the time - but she was still in high school and had only travelled from Knoxville. Now that same executive is likely pricing a self-kicking machine. Ballerini's self-titled EP released last year scored big with a Top Ten Country single, "Love Me Like You Mean It." "The First Time," her full-sized debut, has now ...
