Diplo seems to have begun a release streak. After collaborating with Good Times Ahead for their “Milky Cabrera” release, the iconic producer is back with a brand new original work—this time under his new moniker Thomas Wesley.
“Heartless” is a country fusion tune fit for radio play. It’s also a fitting next step for Diplo, who DJ’d Stagecoach’s 2019 edition and later remixed Lil Nas X’ groundbreaking “Old Town Road.” It features the twangy vocals of Morgan Wallen, which shine on top of the minimal production beneath. Could this be Diplo’s first entry into the country charts, and is this the signal of a new country/EDM revolution? Only time will tell.
