One of Country Music #CMchat’s 15 to Watch in 2015, Kelsea Ballerini, is on the rise, and she is now continuing her climb upward with the release of her lyric video for “Dibs.” A fan favorite since Kelsea’s introduction to the music industry, “Dibs” is a song that expresses interest in a guy that is the object of many girls’ affections.
A sassy, confident track, Kelsea uses her powerful vocals to explain to this in-demand male that she has the right of first refusal when it comes to his love.
If you got a kiss on your lips that you’re looking for somebody to take; if you got a heart that ain’t afraid of love ain’t afraid to break; if you’ve got a Friday night free and a shotgun seat. Well, I’m just saying, I ain’t got nowhere to be so baby I’ll take whatever it is you’ve got to give, yeah. I’m calling dibs on your lips, on your kiss, on your time. Boy, I’m calling dibs on your hand, on your heart; all mine.
The lyric video echoes Kelsea’s adorably dynamic personality, simply showing the bold words of the song in a fancy, yet cutesy, font, placed in a rotating square. The camera focuses on each line, alternating colors to stick with Kelsea’s colorful motif that has been her appropriate branding since the release of her debut single “Love Me Like You Mean It.”
