Diplo Is Throwing Down A Thomas Wesley Set in Fortnite with Noah Cyrus & Young Thug

Diplo is throwing down Fortnite Party Royale style (again)!

He already took over the virtual decks this year for a special Major Lazer set, but coming up this Thursday he’ll appear again as Diplo Presents: Thomas Wesley inside Fortnite. The main stage performance will include special guests Noah Cyrus and Young Thug, both featured on the country-focused album.

Diplo Presents: Thomas Wesley, Chapter 1: Snake Oil dropped last month with much crossover appeal, proving country and dance go hand-in-hand after Avicii already proved it the first time back in 2013. To see it play out in Fortnite will be an entirely different animal, however.

The premiere of Fortnite’s Party Royale saw performances from Steve Aoki, Dillon Francis and deadmau5. We expect the trend to continue as those staying at home seek online entertainment.

More on Fortnite’s Party Royale mode here.

Take your llama down to Party Royale and dance til you can’t no more cause Thomas Wesley is comin’ to town.@diplo Presents: Thomas Wesley with special guests @noahcyrus and @youngthug LIVE at the Main Stage June 25 at 9 PM ET / 6 PM PT pic.twitter.com/bqeMIA2aMe

‘Diplo Presents Thomas Wesley Chapter 1: Snake Oil’ Has Arrived [LISTEN]

At long last, Diplo Presents Thomas Wesley Chapter 1: Snake Oil— the producer’s highly anticipated country album that proves he can truly do it all.

Last night, Diplo celebrated the album’s release with a special edition of his livestream variety show “The Thomas Wesley Show,” featuring guest appearances from country pros Thomas Rhett, Zac Brown, Julia Michaels, Orville Peck, Cam and Jonas Brothers. Today, we’re treated to the full album, which boasts some familiar genre-bending tracks as well as new productions.

If you’ve been keeping up with Diplo’s country career, you’ll instantly recognize the double Platinum-certified single “Heartless” with Morgan Wallen, “Lonely” with Jonas Brothers, “Do Si Do” with Blanco Brown and “So Long” with Cam — and unless you’ve been living under a rock, most definitely the “Old Town Road” remix for Lil Nas X featuring Billy Ray Cyrus.

The album also includes brand new collaborations with Zac Brown and Danielle Bradbery, Noah Cyrus, Orville Peck and more.

Although the raving reviews are few and far between, country and dance go hand-in-hand in Thomas Wesley’s world. Diplo Presents Thomas Wesley Chapter 1: Snake Oil is out now on Columbia Records.
