The months are going by and the homesickness for the Herdade da Casa Branca is growing. The dates from 3 to 7 August 2021 are already saved on the calendar, with the opening of the camping scheduled for July 31st. It will be a winning combination: friends, sun, good weather, and the best music of the moment. After the (re) confirmation, also a winner, of Blackbear, the line-up still has some space for other top names in music. And the best example of this is the new confirmation: Lewis Capaldi, who will perform on August 4th, on the MEO Stage.
Lewis Capaldi is one of the biggest musical phenomena of the past two years, getting fans all over the world. The Glaswegian musician started to shake the music market in 2017, when he made his debut single "Bruises", a track that explored the end of a relationship in a taciturn and, at the same time, poignant tone, showing Lewis's distinctive voice, with a rare ability to thrill those who hear it. This song was enough to put Capaldi's name on the map - and today, on YouTube, the video for "Bruises" has already had almost 50 million views. All of this happened even before the release of the second single, "Lost on You", another immediate success. As soon as he signed to Virgin Records, Capaldi included these two singles on his debut EP, "Bloom". In a few months it was already hugely popular, and this success was crowned with a Scottish Music Award in the category of New Artist of the Year. The first half of 2018 was spent on capitalizing on this meteoric rise: Lewis performed all over the United States and most of Europe.
And the following months brought two more singles massively crowd-pleasing songs: "Rush", with Jessie Reyez, and "Tough". But the best was yet to come, and it definitely came with the first album. "Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent" came out in 2019 and soon went on to number one, both in the UK and Ireland, being the best-selling album of that year in both countries. The single "Someone You Loved" also jumped to the top of the UK singles chart, staying there for seven consecutive weeks - it was also top in the United States, Canada, Scotland, Malaysia, the Czech Republic, among other countries. "Someone You Loved" has more than 300 million views on YouTube and is certainly one of the songs that promises to win the public of MEO Sudoeste, on August 4th, on the MEO Stage, in a premiere not to be missed!
