Morgan Wallen’s hitchhiking with Diplo in new “Heartless” collaboration

Sony Music EntertainmentMorgan Wallen’s already shared a number one with Florida Georgia Line and written a chart-topping hit for Jason Aldean, but now he has a new non-country collaborator: electronic producer/DJ Diplo.

Morgan’s featured on the second country song from the pop hitmaker, who’s releasing the tracks under his given name, Thomas Wesley. Back in April, he put out “So Long,” with vocals by Cam.

His collaboration with Morgan is titled “Heartless.”

“Couple a boys from the south makin music we love,” Morgan tweeted, referencing the fact that Diplo grew up in Florida, while he’s from East Tennessee.

“Why you gotta be so heartless/I know you think it’s harmless,” Morgan sings on the tune about love gone wrong.

“You’re tearin’ me apart and/Girl the hardest part is/You’re so high on attention/Taking miles from inches,” he continues, “Leave me in the darkness/Never finish what we started/Girl why you gotta be so heartless.”

Morgan and Diplo both star in a new lyric video for the song, which alternates between shots of the two hitchhiking while holding a cardboard sign. Morgan’s on a tree-lined country path, while Diplo’s in a more arid climate with cacti lining the road.

“Heartless” is available to stream or download now, or you can check out the lyric video on YouTube.
