Flavor Flav Inspired Kelsea Ballerini?
I’ve always thought of Kelsea Ballerini’s “Yeah Boy” to be like a Taylor Swift song. Something about a cute guy she’s crushing on. Well, if you listen to the lyrics, that seems about right. But that’s not how it all began!
She went into a writing session one day and had a Flavor Flav commercial stuck in her head. Especially the part where he yells his signature, “Yeah boy.” For some reason, she thought that would be a good starting point for a song.
Kelsea says: “We spent like 30 minutes Googling this commercial and it’s a Super Bowl commercial for Doritos. And Flavor Flav is the ‘Yeah boy’.”
No joke…. Here’s the inspiration of your favorite song:
