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.
