Lewis Capaldi has thanked fans on social media after it was revealed that his music amassed one billion streams in 2022.

He shared the news after Spotify released its much-anticipated annual Spotify Wrapped roundup on Thursday.

Spotify Wrapped is a yearly round-up that gives the audio app’s users a slideshow of their most played artists, songs, and genres.

It also includes data for musicians on the number of streams, listeners and countries their music has reached.

Singer-songwriter Capaldi, 26, said he was “truly humbled” after the results revealed his music has gathered over one billion streams.

The Someone You Loved singer shared his results on Twitter and wrote: “1 BILLION?!?!

“How is that actually possible?? Thank u all so so so very much, I am one truly humbled king.”

Oasis and Dionne Warwick were also among stars who thanked fans on social media for their support.

Meanwhile, pop star Marina, formerly Marina and the Diamonds, shared her “embarrassing” results that revealed she had been named her own most-played artist of the year.

The singer tweeted: “That embarrassing moment when you are your own top artist but you can’t figure out why and then you realise that you used Marina Spotify playlists to do vocal warm ups to every night on tour.”

Meanwhile, Singer Charli XCX thanked fans for “paying my bills” and added they have “amazing taste”.

The 29-year-old singer, who landed her first UK number one album, Crash, in March, tweeted: “Am I in your Spotify wrapped?

“Do you have amazing taste?

“Are you paying my bills? if so – thanks.”
