Dove Cameron Sings to a Lip-Syncing Sean Penn in Diplo's Video for 'Use Me (Brutal Hearts)' Song - Watch Now!
Dove Cameron has teamed up with Diplo for a new song! The 44-year-old DJ and producer uses his named Thomas Wesley for his country music persona and he also worked with country music legend Sturgill Simpson for the track, “Use Me (Brutal Hearts).” Sturgill is going by the name Johnny Blue Skies for the song, but he doesn’t appear in the music video, so Oscar-winning actor Sean Penn lip-syncs for him. In the video, Dove appears as a nightclub singer with Sean and Diplo both as patrons. “To prepare for this new Thomas Wesley project, I went back to my father’s house in Florida and I spent six months learnin guitar, gettin in touch with nature, working his boat when the shrimp were running on full moons at the trailer park,” Diplo said in a statement. “I tried on a lot of cowboy hats. I rode a lot of motorcycles and horses basically reflected on my whole life and career and connection with this music…there was a lot. It all started in the swamps I was raised in. This is the greatest single piece of work I’ve ever done, I can promise you that.” The song will be featured on the country project Diplo Presents Thomas Wesley: Chapter 2 — Swamp Savant, which is out April 28.
