Diplo and Morgan Wallen’s “Heartless” Is One of The Best Collaborations You’ll Hear

Morgan Wallen's "Heartless"
by

Diplo and Morgan Wallen’s “Heartless” is a Platinum-certified country crossover! And you can tell it’s one of the best collaborations in country music.

The collaboration came into existence when the American DJ-producer was on a search for fresh material to include on his Thomas Wesley project. Diplo then met up with Nashville-based manager Seth England – whose clients include big names such as Chris Lane, Florida Georgia Line, and of course, Morgan Wallen – to ask for possible collaborators.

England then sent Diplo a number of songs, which includes a track Wallen was working on – the one that ended up Diplo liking the best. Wallen and Diplo recorded “Heartless” and released it in 2019 as a part of Diplo’s album, Chapter 1: Snake Oil. It was Diplo’s first country project ever wherein he teamed up with several different artists.

Interestingly, the two superstars did not meet until filming the music video; Wallen and Diplo actually recorded their parts separately. And yet, the result was more than incredible. The first time you’ll listen to it, you’ll know that it’s a smash hit. Wallen’s raspy voice set against effects-heavy guitar harmonies unfolding at its pace was highlighted all through the song. And when it reached its chorus, the booming trap beat heightened the tension throughout this one-sided relationship.

In 2020, Diplo dropped a remake of “Heartless,” featuring pop star Julia Michaels playing off Wallen with a powerful sense of fed-up frustration. They were trading verses and blending harmonies over the hook-heavy chorus – and it’s nothing but a spark of boldness.

Meanwhile, during the recent Super Bowl party, Diplo was spotted spinning “Heartless” – and the crowd loved it even though the country superstar was lately booted from just about every platform. Indeed, the plays for Morgan Wallen’s songs keep coming.

You can listen to Diplo and Morgan Wallen’s “Heartless” in the video below.
