Named after Tupelo, Mississippi, “Tupelo Shuffle” holds great significance to both Swae Lee and Diplo as it’s not only both of their hometowns, but the hometown of Elvis Presley as well. With that special connection, this single became a notable collaboration paying homage to a place both artists share with Elvis. The pair performed the “Tupelo Shuffle” at the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards last Sunday and Diplo debuted it during his set at iHeartRadio’s Wango Tango. This followed the release of Doja Cat’s melodic single “Vegas” – the visual for Doja’s track is out now, click here to watch.
