Kelsea Ballerini's Message with 'Legends' is 'Love Your People'

2017 CMA Music Festival - Day 2

Kelsea Ballerini is digging deeper with her new music.

The country star wrote her new single “Legends” in an effort to look back fondly on a former relationship, but in a new interview with ET Canada, Kelsea reveals she set out to tell a different story with the single’s music video.

“It’s kind of not just a breakup song. It’s just about loss, but it’s also about love. We wanted this music video to show a bigger depth of the lyric,” she says. “It shows a very tragic loss, and hopefully, people just hear the song differently when they see it.”

Kelsea also hopes the video leaves her fans with the message to “love your people,” and there’s more depth where that comes from.

The songstress adds her forthcoming sophomore album will also cover heavier topics.

“This one is much more in depth and has a lot more heart and a lot more heartbreak in it,” Kelsea says. “It’s been really fun to challenge myself to get really down into that and write about it.”

No official word just yet on a release date for Kelsea’s second album.
