Lewis Capaldi albums and songs sales

With his first album released, Lewis Capaldi got UK’s annual top seller twice, tying a 50-years old feat from Simon & Garfunkel.

Artist career totals

See where the artist ranks among remaining singers

Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent is arguably one of the biggest debuts in recent years, currently standing as the 6th most successful record from 2019. From 2018 to date, only Sour by Olivia Rodrigo did better among debuts.

If he hasn’t been able to replicate his UK pure sales in remaining markets, Before You Go confirmed his ability to score larger than life hits.

Broken by Desire to Be Heavenly Sent is trying to compete, but the comparison to its predecessor are difficult. It is still already up to a million sales.

The singer is up to 12.5 million equivalent album sales.
