Well this is something we probably would have never guessed on our own! Kelsea Ballerini has revealed that rapper Flavor Flav is the true inspiration behind her latest hit single, “Yeah Boy.” In a new interview with Taste of Country, Ballerini explains that the song came about after she got a commercial featuring Flav stuck in her head. “I went into this write and I had that commercial…in my head,” she explains. “We spent like 30 minutes Googling this commercial and it’s a Super Bowl commercial for Doritos. And Flavor Flav is the ‘Yeah boy!’” After spending so much time trying to track down the ad, Ballerini jokingly suggested to her co-writers, “Well, now we have to write a song called ‘Yeah Boy.’”
