LEWIS CAPALDI RETURNS AFTER THREE YEARS WITH CHARTTOPPER



LEWIS Capaldi has returned after three years away from us all - and he’s topped the charts again. 

The Scottish superstar, who gives Beyoncé a run for her money, has returned in style as his new single ‘Forget Me’ rockets straight to the top of the UK singles chart, making it his third UK number 1 single.

Lewis becomes just the third artist this year to have a single go straight in at Number 1 in its first week, alongside Harry Styles (‘As It Was’) and Dave (‘Starlight’), and also marks ‘Forget Me’ as just the eighth number one UK single of 2022.

From announcing the single via a TikTok live stream during the closing night of his two sold-out London’s O2 Arena shows, ‘Forget Me’ arrived with high anticipation from the start, smashing ten million streams in just a few days, surpassing his own week 1 streaming record on hits ‘Someone You Loved & ‘Before You Go’.

Fans across the world have connected with the new track in their droves, confirming that the insatiable appetite for Capaldi burns as bright as ever.

Then came a true spectacle of a music video that saw Lewis re-enact Wham’s 1983 hit ‘Club Tropicana’ shot-for-shot which, in not even a week of existence, has already gone viral and racked up over four million views.

This is just the start of the next chapter in Lewis Capaldi’s career, picking up exactly where he left off and now equalling Adele in accomplishing a hat-trick of UK Number 1 singles. With his welcome, entertaining return to social media and more exciting news on the way, it's a joy to have the quick-witted hitmaker back as he sits on the cusp of becoming one of the biggest stars on the planet.
