Kelsea Ballerini works onstage for opening night of The particular Unapologetically Tour at The Alabama Theater on Feb. 8, 2018 in Birmingham, Ala.
The Spotify Single highlights Ballerini’s silky steady vocals as she adds the dash of country to the R& B-inspired track. But instead of developing a banjo, Ballerini kept a few of the tune’s original funk by adding the groovy bassline and even a car horn section.
The 25-year-old brings you into her wonderful rendition right from the begining by changing Mendes’ piano intro with soft strings. This sweetened vibe bears through the whole song and highs when Ballerini reaches her increased register during the bridge and breathily sings “let’s get lost tonight. inch
This isn’t the first time “Lost In Japan” has been given a brand new spin. Zedd gave the particular track (from Mendes’ self-titled 3rd album) an electronic touch that arrived it in the top 50 upon the Billboard Hot 100 .
In addition to the cover, Ballerini released another version of her hit “Miss Me More” off of her Grammy-nominated album Unapologetically. Both singles were documented at Sound Stage Studios within Nashville.
