Back in August 2019, Morgan Wallen surprised fans with “Heartless”, an EDM collab with music producer Diplo. After racking up over 80 million streams, the two announced that pop singer-songwriter Julia Michaels would be joining them for a remix and music video.
The country-dance track, originally sung solely by Wallen, remains pretty similar: his vocal performance is intense and soul-crushing; he’s heartbroken that the girl he likes is stringing him along, all while still being catchy.
The remix opens with Wallen singing the words “heartless” as an introduction, and then Michaels opens the first verse. Her soulful, songwriter’s voice glides through the verse and into the chorus where she is joined by Wallen for some crisp harmonies. Wallen sings the rest of the song with Michaels on some backup harmonies, and their voices sound great together, especially on the last chorus.
It’s exciting to see this song take off and to see Wallen gain new fans all around the world. Wallen is currently on his headlining ‘Whiskey Glasses Roadshow’ tour, playing shows all around the country.
