Peter Pan – Kelsea Ballerini Review
Using Disney characters as a metaphor, for a real life comparison on a real topic. Any person would spell it as a disaster but not for Kelsea Ballerini and her compelling new track – Peter Pan.
Yup, the country pop inspired Peter Pan sits as one of the tracks off her debut album The First Time (2015) Where she goes on to say about a boy whose still chasing dreams.
The song saw release on March 21, 2016 and was written by Ballerini herself, along with Forest Glen Whitehead and Jesse Lee through the label Black River Records.
While, the song caught everyone on surprise, we as critics beg, why wasn’t a song not produced like that before?
From fans and audiences alike, Peter Pan is praised for its creative authenticity in delivering such subtle messages with so much emotional depth.
While I wouldn’t complain about the rest, Kelsea Ballerini and a handful of other country artist are truly the ones dishing out thought provoking material that instantly grabs you.
The performance speaks for itself, where the song became the most added song on country radio pm March 26, 2016 and since debuting at No.54, has topped out Billboard Country Airplay chart at No.1.
That marked Bellerini’s third top out on the list, elsewhere, the single also topped out Hot Country Song chart along with No.35 on US Billboard Hot 100 currently and she sees no signs of positioning down.
“The smile, the charm, the words, the spark”,…she has it all. From Taylor Swift tweeting about her LP, Ballerini is ready to take on the world with her critic defying productions.
Peter Pan boast some wonderful tunes, instrumentally rich with electric guitars, with heart felt and luscious lyrics that instantly travel to voids of your lost love. “Deep down, I knew that you were too good to be true. But every piece and part of me wanted to believe in you”
Elsewhere she states: “You’re never gonna be a man, Peter Pan” signaling a relationship, where the boy just ran away without giving an explanation for her to reply such.
From lighthearted releases, this emotionally strong productions marks Bellerini’s ability and talent is as good on pen, as it is on the mic as well.
A music video was released on Ballerini’s Vevo account on April 1, 2016.
