Seven days of living vicariously through Thomas Wesley's Instagram.

It's Diplo's world, and we're just smashing the like button in it. As seen on Instagram, Diplo's 2020 is starting off in a very Diplo way -- that is to say: well-traveled, well-paid and largely shirtless. 

Here's everything Diplo got into this week. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

my new years resolution is to do drugs and work out with a bunch of ropes and rocks

January 4: From the jump, Diplo stayed true to his resolution of keeping healthy by doing various shirtless workouts at a vibey beach side gym in Tulum, just like we all one day hope to. The inspiration levels were clearly off the charts, as seen in all the verified accounts shouting words of praise in the comments section. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

when my friends and I finally find a good dj at a festival

January 5: This joke is also a platform for Diplo to promote his house track with Sidepiece, "On My Mind," as Diplo is nothing if not a master of marketing and also, apparently, a Star Wars fan. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

no days off #razr #feeltheflip #ad

A post shared by Thomas Wesley (@diplo) on

January 6: This post is technically an ad for the Razr flip phone, but it made us laugh, which means that we're probably going to consider buying a Razr flip phone. Damn. 

January 7: For the record, we would never tell Diplo to sell his plane.

Here's my picture dump from December --

January 9: Just Diplo reminding you that while you were spending the month buying holidays gifts, fighting a lingering cold and hanging with your grandparents, he was cruising across the African desert on a four-wheeler and surfing with the locals. Advantage Diplo?

January 10: Ours is "All Night" from Beyonce's Lemonade, an album on which Diplo served as co-producer. Call it a full circle, and have a majorly excellent weekend.
