The video for “Cigarette” is labeled as “Volume II” and is the second track on Ballard’s upcoming El Rio album. It’s heavy on the rock and feels like a Kip Moore single, because Kip Moore wrote it with Chris Stapleton and Jaren Johnson. The song is all Ballard though with some rapid vocal delivery and Mr. “Young & Crazy” longing for a cigarette. But, really– he wants to be a cigarette to get closer to the girl. In this case, a stripper smoking a cigarette.
The prequel: “El Camino”
El Rio is available for pre-order and is set to release everywhere on June 10.
