Kelsea Ballerini Didn’t Leak A Taylor Swift Song

There was a bit of confusion recently when Kelsea Ballerini posted a video on Snapchat of a new song playing in the studio. Kelsea’s fans had never heard the song before, and many of them speculated that it was either a new Taylor Swift song – which Ballerini had leaked — or some kind of collaboration between the two friends. Well, it turns out it was neither. Ballerini took to Twitter yesterday afternoon (9/21) to clear things up, revealing that the new tune was actually just a demo of hers called “Roses.” Kelsea tweeted, “Y’all! I’m just as excited for some new T Swift Jams, but I’m not  involved in it!! Roses was a demo of mine. Crazy confusion!”

June 29th: On This Day

On this day in 2012, Blake Shelton received a Double-Platinum Certification for his single “Honey Bee”. The song was Blake’s fist single from his sixth studio album Red River Blue. “Honey Bee” sold 138,000 digital downloads it’s first week, setting a new record for first week downloads by a male country singer. Because of these download numbers, “Honey Bee” debuted at number thirteen on the Billboard Hot 100, making him the highest-debuting male country artist on that chart since Garth Brooks.

The song received a Grammy Nomination for Best Country Solo Performance, but lost to Taylor Swift’s “Mean”.

It has since been Certified Triple-Platinum.
