Kelsea Ballerini’s “Miss Me More” is a comeback song. The singer focuses on that glorious moment that comes when you realize you’re better off without him.
The song is a hold-nothing-back, lean-into-the-details, pop-country celebration delivered with hard-earned scorn. If Ballerini was writing from personal experience (by all indications, she was), it shows during this emphatic, curb-kicking awakening. 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.
