Lewis Capaldi's 'Someone You Loved' officially the biggest song in Ireland for 2019

We can't say we're surprised.

Lewis Capaldi's 'Someone You Loved' was officially the biggest song in Ireland last year.

Capaldi's breakthrough song was the most popular track with the Irish public in 2019 when downloads, audio streams and video plays were combined, notching up a combined 26.8 million streams across audio and video.

Crazy numbers from everyone's favourite Scotsman.

'Someone You Loved' spent six weeks at the top of the Official Irish Singles Chart across March and April.

'Old Town Road' by Lil Nas X came in at a very close second, racking up a combined 21.3 million audio and video plays.

Billie Eilish scored the biggest song of the year not to reach Number One. Bad Guy ended the year overall in third place, with 18 million streams, spending six non-consecutive weeks at Number Two. Unlucky Billie.

'Love Tonight' by Soulé was the biggest song of 2019 by an Irish female artist, while 'Outnumbered' by Dermot Kennedy was the biggest song by a male artist from Ireland.

It was also announced that there was a total of 7.5 billion audio streams logged in Ireland last year, a 37% growth compared to 2018. We love our tunes, so we do.
