Lewis Capaldi has scooped his second official UK No1 with his hit Before You Go.
It is the Scottish singer-songwriter’s second chart-topper following the success of last year’s hit Someone You Loved.
The 23-year-old, from Whitburn in West Lothian, was in typically hilarious form when he heard the news tonight, saying he would have been “disgusted” if he came in second.
The Grammy-nominated star told OfficialCharts.com: “It’s so nice to get another one in the bag, second number one for my song Before You Go and it means the world so thank you so much if you went and bought it.
“Obviously becoming number one is absolutely everything to me and I would be disgusted if I had the number two spot, it would be gross, so yeah I’m so glad I’m not that guy, and if I did I don’t know what I would do, I would probably go home, cry into my hands and just have an awful, awful time, so thank you so much.”
Taking to Twitter to announce the news, he wrote: “Does this make me a two hit wonder? thank u all so much!!! X”
The Weeknd’s Blinding Lights is at number two this week, ahead of Roddy Ricch’s The Box at number three, Godzilla by Eminem featuring Juice Wrld at number four, and Stormzy’s Own It with Ed Sheeran and Burna Boy.
Over on the albums chart, British singer-songwriter and rapper J Hus beat Pet Shop Boys and Eminem to the top spot.
His new album Big Conspiracy is his first chart-topper, as his debut album Common Sense peaked at number six in 2017.
Last week’s chart-topper, Music To Be Murdered By by Eminem, is at number two this week, ahead of Pet Shop Boys’ new album Hotspot, which debuts at number three.
Capaldi’s Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent is at number four while rapper M Huncho is new in at number five with Huncholini The 1st.
