Lewis Capaldi scores third UK Number 1 single with Forget Me: "This one goes out to my enemies!"

Forget Me, Lewis' first single in nearly three years, is the third song to debut at Number 1 in 2022.

Not that you’ve forgotten, but Lewis Capaldi is back. Today sees the Scottish singer-songwriter clinch his third UK Number 1 single with Forget Me. 

Forget Me debuts at the top of the Official Singles Chart with chart units of over 56,000. It’s Lewis’ third chart-topper following Someone You Loved (2019) and Before You Go (2020) 

Both the most physically-purchased and digitally downloaded single of the week in the UK, Forget Me marks Lewis’ first chart entry in nearly three years, as well as the third Number 1 debut of 2022; after Dave’s Starlight and Harry Styles with As It Was.  

The synth-flavoured anthem is the first taste of Lewis’ second album, the follow-up to the blockbuster million-seller Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent.

Speaking exclusively to OfficialCharts.com, Lewis said (and prepare for some good old Scottish sarcasm here): "I can't thank everyone enough for doing this with me and getting it to this point, even though I did most of the work myself!

"This one goes out to all of you, the people who love me, and especially to my enemies. May you all perish in flames and know nothing but eternal suffering."

Thank you Lewis Capaldi for, as ever, having such a delicate way with words.

We all new Lewis was going to get it. I thought it was going to be weak because David Guetta & Bebe Rexha were leading on streams but I think the physical sales mattered after all.
Still, not complaining. Don't see any Robbie Williams' hits here, wonder why?!
Central Cee could've debuted in the Top 40, but still, we'll see. This week's chart is better than last week!




Robbie will drop like a stone next week




, we all thought Lewis Capaldi was going to run away with it a few days ago & there actually didn’t end up being very much in it at all! 😂

Congrats to him on his third #1 single nonetheless. :)

Between this & LF System, Scottish acts are having a really strong year in the charts, aren't they?




Well this is better than Afraid To Feel. I'm just saying.

Sales made a huge impact this week but it will easily be overshadowed next week by David Guetta and Bebe Rexa as sales drop drastically, although the streaming for him has gone up slightly as the week progressed it won't be enough to hold up top. Great for him to get another no.1 under his belt but as you mention its very similiar to 'grace' just far better production, although I think the pure rawness of his 1st album without the over production will be far superior then what his next album will be if it is all over produced to perfection
