Kelsea Ballerini has given fans another sample of her upcoming second album, Unapologetically. The singer-songwriter revealed a new song titled “Miss Me More” on Friday morning (Oct. 20).

The 23-year-old star pulls from a wide variety of influences for “Miss Me More,” drawing on contemporary country and pop, but also incorporating some slick rap phrasing into her rhythmic vocal delivery. The sprightly song finds Ballerini addressing a relationship that has turned too stifling because of her partner’s controlling ways.

“I retired my red lipstick ’cause you said you didn’t like it / I didn’t wear my high heeled shoes, ’cause I couldn’t be taller than you,” she begins a laundry list of her partner’s demands, which have even caused her to lose track of her friends.

She’s finally had enough and kicked him to the curb, and though she thought she would miss him, she needs to assert her independence.

“I miss me more / I miss my own beat of my own snare drum / I miss my own sheets in the bed I made up / I forgot I had dreams, I forgot I had wings / Forgot who I was before I ever kissed you / I thought I’d miss you, but I miss me more,” Ballerini sings in the chorus, delivering the lyrics in a rhythmic cadence that blends rap with a shout-out pop chorus.

“I’m obsessed with the patterns and the rhythms of rap,” Ballerini tells Vulture. “I love that you can have hooks that you have to sing at the top of your lungs for it to really matter, like ‘Miss Me More.'”

Unapologetically is set for release on Nov. 3. The album’s first single, “Legends,” is currently at country radio.
