After weeks and weeks of climbing up the Billboard Hot 100, Lewis Capaldi finally reached the top spot! The British singer got his first no. 1 single on the chart with his breakout hit “Someone You Loved.”
This moving track was originally released on November 8th, 2018 as the third single from his EP Breach. It was later released as a part of his debut album Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent, and grabbed everyone’s attention thanks to a heartbreaking music video starring Doctor Who’s Peter Capaldi.
“Someone You Loved” is Capaldi’s first entry on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US, and it spent a total of 24 weeks on the chart before reaching the top spot. This track previously made it to no. 1 in several other countries, including the UK and Ireland.
By climbing to the top spot, Lewis Capaldi dethroned Lizzo who spent seven weeks on no. 1 thanks to her smash hit “Truth Hurts”. This song currently shares the record with Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” for the longest reign for rap song by a female artist on Billboard Hot 100.
