As release day nears for Kelsea Ballerini’s upcoming album, Subject to Change, she’s dropping a few more hints about the project.
The singer answered a handful of fan questions about her new musical chapter on Instagram Stories this week, and in one slide, she teased a big collaboration that will feature not one but two guest artists. In response to a question about whether there will be a duet on the record, Kelsea shared a screenshot of a text exchange between herself and one of the collaborators on the song.
“Finishing up my record and have a song that I wanted to turn into a sassbomb female moment and just have to ask you if you would be a part of it,” reads Kelsea’s text to a recipient whose name is strategically blocked off.
“It’s country as s***,” she continues before telling the unnamed collaborator that another artist is already in the mix, so “it would be a little trio.”
While neither artist is identified in the tease, there is a clue in the mystery guest’s response to Kelsea: After she agrees to the duet, she replies with an emoji of a woman with blonde hair.
Subject to Change comes out September 23.
