‘Someone You Loved’ Singer Lewis Capaldi Rejected Camila Cabello Collaboration
Lewis Capaldi, the Scottish singer-turned sensation after he went to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 with Someone You Loved, turned down a collaboration with Camila Cabello.
The 23-year-old singer who uses his new-found-fame as a way to show his fanbase around the world of music was offered a chance to collaborate with Cabello shortly before his music went viral.
He told Music Week magazine that he was given the opportunity to work with the 22-year-old, but declined the offer, saying, “I said, ‘No, I’d rather have a number three by myself than a number one with a feature’ because it was still so new in America that everyone would think it was someone else’s song.
Say f****** Camila Cabello did a version of it people would go, ‘Oh, that Camila song with the guy on it?” — since the songs huge success, the Liar singer has made her own cover version of Capaldi’s Someone You Loved.
