Diplo Drops Video for Thomas Wesley Track, "Heartless" - EDM.com - The Latest Electronic Dance Music News, Reviews & Artists

Notorious EDM superstar Diplo has his hand in just about everything these days. His latest foray into a country-themed sound saw him team up with vocalist Morgan Wallen for a track called "Heartless" under his alias Thomas Wesley. Now, "Heartless" has a music video to accompany it. 

The video features Diplo and Wallen at a county fair, riding rides and watching fireworks. It's quite a feelgood video to accompany a track lamenting a breakup with a significant other. After Diplo and Wallen are finished playing shooting games and having their caricatures drawn, we see scenes of a brief EDM show with Diplo on the decks, making everything feel just a little more familiar.

"Heartless" feels a bit more like a pop ballad with country themes than an actual country song, with Diplo's hip-hop-inspired production sitting nicely beneath Wallen's heartbroken lyrics. The track itself is already racking up streams and is quite popular among Diplo's diverse fan base and beyond. 

Diplo is always working on something new, and this latest venture into more country-oriented sound under the Thomas Wesley alias will undoubtedly be a successful side project for him. It's evident that he's always looking to push the envelope and discover new sounds, and "Heartless" does just that.
