LEWIS Capaldi has overtaken Ed Sheeran with the UK’s most streamed song ever — and he joked: “Nice guys finish last.”
The 26-year-old Scot’s Someone You Loved topped Ed’s Shape Of You, in a list compiled to celebrate 70 years of the Official Singles Chart.

It gained 562million audio and video streams.
Ed’s was the only other song over 500million — but not by enough.
Capaldi hailed himself “king of music” as he received an award and an inflatable crown from the Official Charts Company.
He said Sheeran, 31 — who has co-written with him — was “like a brother . . . a mentor”.
