Breakout hitmaker Morgan Wallen applies his acid-washed vocal to a new EDM crossover with superstar DJ, Diplo, sharing the smooth-burning track “Heartless.”
Now releasing country-inspired tunes under his actual name, Thomas Wesley, Diplo’s latest concoction is potent mix of country heart and dance-floor heat, with a slow rolling rhythm built on drum-machined beats and finger snaps. Underneath that is a layer of delicate guitar strumming, while Wallen lets his gravelly voice loose to lament an uncaring lover.
“Why you gotta be so heartless / I know you think it’s harmless / You’re tearin’ me apart, and / Girl the hardest part is / You’re so high on attention / Takin’ miles from inches / Leave me in the darkness / Never finish what we started / Girl, why you gotta be so heartless,” goes the grooving chorus.
Diplo’s collaboration with Wallen is one of a number of country crossovers from the international star, and follows the pulsating “So Long” with Cam. That surprising release featured a video shot at this year’s Stagecoach festival where “Thomas Wesley” made his debut, and according to Wallen, the official visuals for “Heartless” are on the way.
