Diplo‘s gone country, and his latest release under his twangy, real-name moniker Thomas Wesley now has a flashy music video filmed in Atlantic City.
“Heartless” features the producer and his singing partner, Morgan Wallen, taking their shots at the carnival games and looking real sultry under the neon lights. If the long-haired, rhinestone cowboys can’t win the hearts of their bad lovers, at least they can try to win some prizes.
Diplo’s Thomas Wesley project began with his Cam collaboration “So Long.” He dove deeper into the country world with a remix of Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus‘ megahit “Old Town Road,” then performed his new country sound for the crowds at Stagecoach 2019 and Baltimore’s Pimlico Race Course as a preamble to the 144th Preakness Stakes horse race.
He’s got a full country EP coming under the Wesley name this fall. Watch Diplo and Wallen in the “Heartless” video below.
