While being an eclectic mix of collaborations and tracks, as body of work it flows well and is an interesting and modern take on country, from names you wouldn’t necessarily associate with the genre.
Stand out tracks include Heartless with Julia Michaels & Morgan Wallen, Julia Michaels has one of those voices where her vocals just elevate any track she features on. Where as Lonely, with The Jonas Brothers gives the album that pop appeal.
It’s an extremely easy album to listen to perfect for having on a nice warm day while you relax and take it easy. What Diplo has done is create an album that pays homage to the genre, while not being a traditional country album. he has made the genre accessible and relatable to all music fans. It shows exactly why he is one of the most in demand and visionary forces within the music industry at the moment.
