Lewis Capaldi creates history as his 2018 released single “Someone You Loved” become the UK’s most streamed song of all time, surpassing Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You.”
On the 70th birthday of the Officials singles chart, the Official Chart Company announced that a new streaming record has been made. The 26-year-old singer ranks 1st by amassing a total of 562 million streams (UK audio and video streams combined). He received a special edition black matte award written no.1 on it and a classy crown.
Speaking exclusively to OfficialCharts.com, he said: “I’m the streaming king in the UK on this particular song! I feel huge, I feel massive, I feel my loins expanding as I become more and more aware of the reality of my coronation as the king of music. Thank you. A very large accolade that I will now shoulder for the rest of my life, or until Ed Sheeran releases his next album.”
When Capaldi was asked about surpassing Sheeran to become the all-time streaming record holder, he said “Ed’s a man who is like a brother to me, he’s been a mentor, he’s put his arm around me and said don’t worry everything’s going to be OK.
“He gave us the honor of supporting him on the closing shows of the Divide tour, he’s been nothing but kind and gracious and beautiful, a good friend in an ever-changing industry.
Meanwhile, in October 2022, Capaldi announced that he will release his upcoming album Broken by Desire to Be Heavenly Sent on 19 May 2023, and it was revealed that Ed Sheeran co-wrote the track Pointless in it.
