Alexandra GavilletLewis Capaldi is officially “America’s Sweetheart” now. The Scottish singer’s hit “Someone You Loved” has finally reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, after ruling multiple charts worldwide.

“Someone You Loved” previously topped the Official U.K. Singles chart for seven weeks, beginning in March.
Elsewhere on the Billboard Hot 100 this week, Lizzo‘s “Truth Hurts” drops to number two and Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello‘s “Senorita” jumps to number three.
