Lily Rose shared, “It’s pretty surreal to me that I’m not only part of Diplo’s new project, but featured on track number 1.”
During the season finale of The Voice on Tuesday night (May 23), Diplo and Lily Rose collaborated to perform their joint single, “Sad In The Summer,” for the first time live on television.
Together, the two brought the song to life in a swamp-like backdrop as Rose sang the popular song’s lyrics.
Rose sang on the tune of the chorus, “I don’t wanna be sad in the summer so / Please don’t let me go til it’s over / I don’t wanna be sad in the summer so / Can you just hold me close, a little longer / Keep making love while the sun shines / When September comes we’ll say goodbye / I don’t wanna be sad in the summer so / Sad in the summer so, sad in the summer no.”
Lily Rose co-wrote “Sad In The Summer” alongside labelmate Griffen Palmer, Geoff Warburton, Ben Johnson, Diplo, King Henry, and Picard Brothers. In the song, Rose is seen desperately clinging to a love that will endure as the year begins to cool.
Rose shared, “It’s pretty surreal to me that I’m not only part of Diplo’s new project, but featured on track number 1.” She added, “I spun the hell outta his first Country collab project and it’s a huge honor to get to say I’m on the second one. Massive thank you to Diplo and the whole team for making this bucket list moment happen!”
Over a distinctive Diplo beat, the song perfectly blends Lily Rose’s buttery vocals.
Diplo, whose real name is Thomas Wesley Pentz, and Lily Rose performed the song for the first time live at Stagecoach on the last night of Diplo’s yearly “Late Night in Palomino.”
