Lewis Capaldi Tops US Charts With ‘Someone You Loved’ | Music News
Lewis Capaldi has recently reached the number one spot in the US top singles chart, with his piano ballad “Someone You Loved”, from his debut album Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent. He’s the first Scottish singer to score a solo US number one since Sheena Easton‘s “Morning Train” (Nine To Five) in 1981.
“Someone You Loved” has achieved great success all around the world, reaching number one in Canada, Ireland, Malaysia and the Czech Republic. In the UK, the song topped the charts in March and kept that position for seven weeks. In the US, the singer’s climb to number one position has been very slow, since the song spent 23 weeks in the charts before reaching the top of the pile.
Capaldi has expressed his satisfaction on social media, posting a photo where he appears with an American flag painted on his face. He said during an interview: “I have no clue why this piano ballad has done what it’s done. I never thought we were writing a big song here. I just wrote a song and, thankfully, people seemed to like it”.
He then added: “I feel like America’s sweetheart, at least for a moment. I feel like I’m the sweetest heart in all of the US of A. I feel like I’m a wrestler, and I’m just walking out [to the ring] and there’s an American flag, and I’m saying, ‘USA! USA!’ That’s what I feel like, a wrestler”.
Capaldi will soon perform his beautiful “Someone You Loved” during his upcoming UK tour, alongside other renowned tracks, which allowed him to reach international stardom this year.
