Kelsea Ballerini had a muse for her hit single “Yeah Boy,” but it isn’t her fiancé Morgan Evans. In a recent interview with Taste of Country, the rising country star revealed rapper Flavor Flav inspired the track.

“I went into this write and I had that commercial … in my head,” the country singer said. “We spent like 30 minutes Googling this commercial and it’s a Super Bowl commercial for Doritos. And Flavor Flav is the ‘Yeah boy!'”
