Songfacts®:

  • Here, Kelsea Ballerini makes it clear that a hard-partying lifestyle is not for her.

    I don't wanna go to the club
    I don't wanna watch everybody around me try to hook up
    And say stuff they don't mean
    And get drunk and get cheap


    The singer prefers a cozy night at home to all the stress that clubbing brings.
  • Ballerini wrote this breezy tune with the Nashville songwriters Nicolle Galyon and Jimmy Robbins. The same trio penned her previous single, "homecoming queen?"
  • The song's music video finds Ballerini enjoying a fun night in a hotel room with her posse. We see the singer and her friends - they are Ballerini's real-life buddies - singing karaoke and dancing wildly. The girls conclude their party by leaping into the hotel's swimming pool.
  • Kelsea Ballerini gave a debut performance of the song at the 2019 People's Choice Awards stage on November 11, 2019.
  • Kelsea Ballerini re-recorded the song in a more stripped-down, subdued style and released it as the lead single from Ballerini, which contains all the same songs as Kelsea, but laid down in a softer, more vulnerable way.
