Kelsea Ballerini’s creativity is on full display in her new “Heartfirst” music video. The song is about the push and pull of taking a chance on love. Instead of listening to what her mind says, she chooses to follow her heart.
The clip features Ballerini playing a girl who may have just met the love of her life after passing him on the street. Sadly, the love interest in the video isn’t her husband Morgan Evans, but there is a resemblance between the two.
The video features plenty of elaborate scenes, as Ballerini rides a roller coaster through the clouds, sings on a Craps table, and even strums her guitar next to a cheetah in the desert. All of these elements are mixed together with the “Dibs” singer atop a real wooden roller coaster.
The highlight of the video is when Ballerini climbs a ladder into the skies before jumping into the sky. It’s the perfect visual for the lyrics “But I’ll jump in / Baby, with my heart first.”
Ballerini was heavily involved in the making of the video designing the entire treatment. You will see his name in the end credits.
Recently, the Tennessee native updated fans on the progress of her upcoming album. In an Instagram post, she noted that she spent the day listening to the final mixes of the upcoming project. Although a release date and title have yet to be confirmed, it’s safe to assume the album will arrive before the end of the year.
