Ballerini says “‘Legends’ is one of the first songs I wrote for the record and every time I’ve listened to it, I find a different meaning.” The single gives a feeling of a spiritual successor to her “fantasy-themed” platinum hit “Peter Pan.”
When asked about her experience with making the music video, she says she loves “being hands on, writing songs and having a vision in my head, it’s fun to collaborate with directors and having lyrics come to life.”
