Lewis Capaldi completes his comeback as “Forget Me” (Vertigo) blasts to No.1 in the UK
“Forget Me” collects more than 56,000 first-week chart sales, according to the Official Charts Company, and is the best-selling (physical and digital downloads) single of the most recent cycle.
It is the third single to start at No.1 in the Official UK Chart this year, following Dave’s “Starlight” and Harry Styles’ “As It Was”.
The Brits certainly haven’t forgotten Capaldi. While collecting the singles chart crown, his debut album Divinely uninspired to the extent of hellt returns to the UK top 10 with a rise of 17-9. The LP ruled the survey for 10 weeks following its release in 2019, recording 78 consecutive weeks in the top 10.
Second place on the singles chart is again David Guetta and Bebe Rexhas “I’m Good (Blue)” (via Parlophone), unchanged at No.2; while with Nicki Minaj “Super Freaky Girl” (Republic Records) lifts 6-5, for a new high; and Chris Brown’s “Under The Influence” (RCA) lifts 14-9 for the US R&B singer’s first UK top 10 appearance in two years.
Three Afrobeats stars enjoy increases on new survey. Burna boy and Ed Sheeran’s “For My Hand” (Atlantic) lifts 24-22; Oxlade’s “Ku Lo Sa – A Colors Show” (Epic) improves 32-24; and Rema’s “Calm Down” (Mavin) rises 51-35 after the release of a remix featuring Selena Gomez.
Finally, Central Cee just misses out on a 13th top 40 appearance with “LA Leakers Freestyle” (via Central Cee), new at No. 42.
