Lewis Capaldi has premiered his new music video for his latest single, “Rush,” which features Colombia singer-songwriter Jessie Reyez. The single has over a million streams in the first week of release. Lewis and Jessie wrote “Rush” with GRAMMY® winner Malay (Frank Ocean, Lorde, Sam Smith), who also produced the track. You can listen to Lewis’ EP Bloom here.
Lewis goes onto speak about the single, “‘Rush’ is all about heartbreak and the weird headspace you occupy after the end of a relationship where you feel like absolute shit and, if you’re being honest with yourself, you hope the other person feels just as bad.” “Of course, the flip side of that is you obviously still care about this person, so really you hope they’re not experiencing the shit because you know how bad it feels and wouldn’t want that for them. So the whole tune is this internal conflict you’re having as you think about the situation.”
