Kelsea Ballerini & The Chainsmokers: Is a Duet Looming?

Does Kelsea Ballerini have a confidential collaboration up her sleeve? The Grammys nominee has long vocalized her support of EDM mega duo the Chainsmokers, which raises a collaboration question for fans of Kelsea’s and the Chainsmokers' alike.“please tell me this means a collaboration will happen,” one fan has already wrote on Twitter.


The “Closer” singers first reached out to the “Peter Pan” songstress on social media in December.

“@KelseaBallerini we gotta hang,” they wrote. Responded Kelsea, “It’s like you’re READING MY MIND. I’m in.”


Kels then posted a video of herself singing the Chainsmokers’ latest single “Paris” on social media on January 16, calling the song “a jam.”

“Love you so much Kelsea,” the duo said in response. 


Both Kelsea and the Chainsmokers are nominated for “Best New Artist” at next week’s Grammy Awards, the point at which Kelsea tells she plans to be finished with her forthcoming sophomore album.

“It’s all I’ve been doing this last week because the second that I step on the plane to go to the Grammys, I have to be done with my album,” she says. 

Will that Chainsmokers collaboration be included? No official word on any potential duet just yet.

Look for Kelsea and the Chainsmokers on the Grammys, airing live from the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles Sunday, Feb. 12, at 8/7c on CBS.
