Lewis Capaldi celebrates Someone You Loved reaching Number 1 in America, brands himself "America's sweetheart"

The Scottish singer-songwriter celebrates his first US Number 1 single in true Lewis Capaldi fashion.

Lewis Capaldi has celebrated reaching Number 1 on America's Billboard Hot 100 chart with Someone You Loved in typically Lewis Capaldi style. 

The Scottish singer-songwriter painted his face with the American flag, cracked open a bottle of champagne and posed in a t-shirt that branded him "America's sweetheart" in a series of pictures posted on his social media.

"I feel like America's sweetheart, at least for a moment," Lewis told Billboard. "I feel like I'm the sweetest heart in all of the U.S. of A.

"I feel like I'm a wrestler, and I'm just walking out [to the ring] and there's an American flag, and I'm saying, 'U.S.A! U.S.A.!' That's what I feel like, a wrestler."

Lewis ended Lizzo's seven-week reign at the US top spot with Truth Hurts after Someone You Loved logged 25.2 million streams and 24,000 downloads. Lewis is the first Scottish artist to score a solo Number 1 in America in 38 years.

In the UK, the track spent seven weeks at the summit of the Official Singles Chart in March/April. When Lewis's debut album landed at Number 1 in May, he celebrated with us in, ummm, style!

The album, called Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish extent, is currently the UK's biggest album released in this year.
