Lewis Capaldi claims the top spot on the Official Singles Chart with his latest release “Wish You The Best,” which debuts at Number 1. This marks his fifth UK Number 1 single and third in less than a year, following the success of “Someone You Loved” (2019), “Before You Go” (2019), “Forget Me” (2022), and “Pointless” (2023). The emotional ballad is taken from his upcoming album, “Broken by Desire to Be Heavenly Sent.”
Capaldi’s achievement puts him in the company of some of the biggest names in UK chart history, including David Bowie, Beyoncé, Cheryl, All Saints, and the Bee Gees. The success of “Wish You The Best” is partly attributed to the release of a special CD single, which accounted for 16.8k of its chart units this week.
In addition to his latest hit, Capaldi’s Netflix documentary “How I’m Feeling Now” has also helped to propel two of his former chart-toppers, “Forget Me” and “Pointless,” back into the charts. These tracks claimed the 7th and 16th positions, respectively, in this week’s chart.
Lewis Capaldi’s continued success on the Official Singles Chart is a testament to his talent and the emotional connection he establishes with his listeners. With his fifth Number 1 single, he has solidified his position as one of the UK’s most popular and enduring artists.
