If you’ve been living under a rock this past week, or you just have bad music taste, you might have missed America’s Sweetheart, Lewis Capaldi, drop a celebrity singalong video for his track “Bruises“.
Side note: The song is a total banger.
So many celebrities. It’s basically a giant flex of his famous friend’s list. And to show just how big the flex is, we’ve made a list of all the celebrities that appear in the video.

Thanks for the invite, hun. (PS – Still waiting on you to swipe us back on Tinder, Lewis).
It’s Lewis Capaldi‘s birthday today, and we love him so much he could call us a plonker and we’d still stan. (Plonker = British for idiot). So for his 23rd birthday, here are 23 reasons you should stan him…
His Music and Their Videos
Every song he’s ever released is a banger. Don’t fight us on this. We’ll die on this rock. His video’s are lit too. We’ll also die on that rock. Don’t believe us? Watch his video for “Grace” and tell us we’re wrong.
He’s the Scottish Beyoncé. And if that video doesn’t prove it, this billboard from the London Underground certainly does…
He’s On Tinder!
So Lewis Capaldi is on Tinder. And we’re not saying we signed up just to try and match with him… We’re just saying we weren’t on Tinder before he was, and we probably won’t be once he’s not either…
(Lewis it’s been 2 weeks since we super-liked you, how many sunglasses do we need to bribe you with for you to match with us?)
He’s America’s Sweetheart
Now we know what you’re thinking. He’s Scottish, so how can he be Americas Sweetheart? Well, two reasons. One – he said so. Two – there’s merch to back it up. You can check out the merch here.
His Instagram Location Tags
Lewis Capaldi is basically the most well-travelled person out there. Just check out the locations he’s tagged himself at on Instagram…
He’s a Sunglasses Connoisseur
If you didn’t know Lewis Capaldi was a sunglasses connoisseur, you probably don’t follow him on Instagram… And that’s illegal. He’s one of a kind. And here’s the proof…
So let’s recap. 1 His music, 2 His videos, 3 He’s the Scottish Beyoncé, 4 He’s on Tinder, 5 He’s America’s Sweetheart, 6 He’s well-traveled (his Instagram proves it), 7-23 His Sunglasses Collection.
That’s 23 reasons to stan Lewis Capaldi on his 23rd birthday. You’re welcome.

This week has been full of surprises from Lewis Capaldi! (aka – the Scottish Beyoncé, America’s sweetheart, Sam Fender‘s #1 fan). And as Lewis‘s biggest high velocity air circulators, (fans – as he calls us), we’re absolutely living for it.
Officially now called Lewis Capaldi week – we’ve had an Ireland tour announcement, a new EP Bruises, and a chance to match with Lewis on Tinder!
He’s headed to Ireland! 3 dates have been added, and they’re Lewis‘s biggest ever headline shows! Tickets for the mini tour in June 2020 went on sale today, with all 60,000 tickets selling out in seconds!
Finally, new music! We’ve been streaming his last album Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent so much, Spotify is about to put out a billboard saying “To the user who has listened to Lewis Capaldi‘s album on repeat or the last 150 days straight, are you ok?” (and it hasn’t even been out 150 days).
Bruises EP ties in perfectly to his song of the same name “Bruises” from his last album, the song that started his breakthrough back in 2017.
The EP features the original track “Bruises”, also newly released as a single, along with 3 new versions of the track – a live orchestral version, an acoustic version and a remixed version by Steve Void.
The acoustic guitar version is a powerful rendition of the original track, with Lewis belting out strong notes as usual, but in a slightly more natural, unfiltered way, with varying tones compared to the original.
With an orchestra to back him up, the orchestral rendition is more powerful than the acoustic, a highlight of the EP. Emotion is more evident in this version, with the lyrics sung in a strong, emotional tone. A video for the orchestral version was released today, featuring a dark room, drawing attention to Lewis and the power in his vocals.
Rounding out the EP, Steve Void‘s remix plays at a slightly sped up pace to match its party vibe. We’d dance like usual to the original track, but this one would probably get us into a dance battle we’d be going so hard.
Lewis Capaldi is on Tinder, and we basically signed up just to find him.
Billboards of Lewis‘s Tinder Profile have started popping up, and it’s now been revealed he’ll be awarding free tickets to his upcoming tour for fans who are lucky enough to match with him. A trip for two to see him play in New York is also up for grabs.
I’m very excited to have teamed up with the people at Tinder to give two lucky people the chance to fly out to New York to meet your favorite big lovely handsome celebrity (me). I’m yet to find love and Tinder Gold is the only lifeline I have left before I’m resigned to a lifetime living at home with my mother.

His anthem is his own song? We stan one man.
While speaking to NME, Lewis said he wrote his profile to reflect that he’s a “chubby guy, a bit weird looking, who sings songs, they’re all sad.”
He continued to say “well, my Tinder bio for the minute is: ‘BRITs Critics Choice nominee, I almost scored a top bin once on Soccer AM (not televised), I have one dog and I’m very good at fighting’.”
