Lewis Capaldi caught up with Billboard on the red carpet at the 2020 Grammy Awards, chatting about where he thinks he’s headed following the massive success of his song “Someone You Loved” and how it feels to know that so many people have connected with his music.
Asked why he jokes about being a one-hit wonder, Capaldi replies that he thinks his career is going to go downhill from here. “Listen, we had a good year,” he explains. “Right now, song's doing well, great. But after that, then the work starts to dry up, the phone doesn't ring, I'm alone in my apartment and with my dog, who hates me. He's 15 years old, his name's Paddy. And yeah, I foresee my career being a tailspin shortly after this, yes.”
