Someone You Loved By Lewis Capaldi
"Someone You Loved" is a track recorded by Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi. It was launched as a download on eight November 2018 via Vertigo Records and Universal Music as the third single from his second extended play, Breach (2018), and was later included on his debut album, Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent (2019). The track was written by Capaldi, Samuel Romans, and its producers Thomas Barnes, Peter Kelleher, and Benjamin Kohn. It was serviced to radio stations on 16 April 2019 as the first US single.
"Someone You Loved" was a business success, peaking at number 1on the UK Singles Chart. The track turned Capaldi's first hit single and spent seven consecutive weeks atop of the chart. It additionally peaked at number 1 on the Irish Singles Chart in March 2019. In the US, "Someone You Loved" was a sleeper hit, topping the Billboard Hot 100 in its 24th week on the chart. It was nominated for Song of the Year on the 62nd Grammy Awards. It additionally acquired an award for Song of the Year on the 2020 Brit Awards.
In an interview with NME, Capaldi revealed that it took him six months to put in writing the track. He mentioned, "A lot of people say that 'the best songs fall into your lap' and that they're the easiest ones to write and take the shortest amount of time: I wholeheartedly disagree with that. I think my best songs come from me sitting at a piano, bashing my head against a brick wall for hours and hours on end to get one good melody."
There are two music videos to accompany "Someone You Loved".
The first music video was released on 8 February 2019, starring actor Peter Capaldi, who is Lewis Capaldi's second cousin once removed. It was directed by filmmaker Phil Beastall. Filming took place in Buxton in late January 2019. The video was made in partnership with charity organization Live Life Give Life in order to raise awareness for the issue of organ donation. It contains a message of loss and hope, telling a story of a husband who is trying to cope with the death of his wife. She became the heart donor for the young mother of another family, saving her life. Eventually, the two families are brought together and the main character knows that his wife's heart continues to live on.
The official video, featuring the singer was released on 29 August 2019. Here, Capaldi wanders the streets, following his lost love as his friends and strangers try to stop him from chasing after her. “I wanted to show another side to the song,”
Capaldi said: “For me, the video is about the people we surround ourselves with that have the strength when we don’t and help us continue to make the right decisions in moments of fear or hardship. At the moment we often choose to ignore friends and family, thinking our judgment is better, but of course in hindsight when you’re in that headspace it’s almost impossible to make the right decisions.”
"Someone You Loved" reached number one on the UK Singles Chart and stayed there for seven consecutive weeks. Additionally, it is Capaldi's first entry on the US Billboard Hot 100, debuting at number 85 on the issue dated 25 May 2019 and changing into the singer's first number-one single within the nation on the issue dated 2 November 2019. It reached number 1 after 24 weeks on the chart, changing into one of many longest climbs to the highest place in Billboard historical past. After three non-consecutive weeks on prime, it was beaten by Post Malone's "Circles."
In Ireland, the song cumulated 26.8 million streams in 2019. It was the biggest-selling track within the nation this year.
