Songfacts®:

  • Thomas Wesley is DJ and producer Diplo, who is best known for being a member of the electronic dancehall music project Major Lazer and his work with such pop stars as Beyoncé, Madonna and Justin Bieber. For this song, his first foray into country music, Diplo is using the name Thomas Wesley (his birth name is Thomas Wesley Pentz).
  • The song features vocals by the Nashville singer Cam, who tells a story of unrequited love.

    I know you're fine doing life on your own
    But that doesn't mean you should spent it alone
    'Cause boy, you've been flying solo for so long
    But I think it's time to give your heart, your heart what it wants


    Cam tells her potential love interest that she will treat him well if only he would give her his heart.
  • Filmed at the Stagecoach music festival in California, the song's music video starts with Cam singing on the back of a moving golf cart while Diplo tends farm animals on the ranch. Once Diplo arrives at the festival, we see him hanging out with Dwight Yoakam, Lil Nas X, Billy Ray Cyrus and celebrity chef Guy Fieri. You might spot Sam Hunt as well.
