Cabello’s arrangement of the song, which features on Capaldi’s chart-topping debut album ‘‘Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent’, added more instrumentation and sonic flourishes to the piano ballad, including drums and horns.

In an Instagram post which you can see below, Cabello wrote about her emotional attachment to ‘Someone You Loved’: “Lewis Capaldi, thanks for making a magically heartbreaking song and making me get in my feelings every time I sang this.”

lol every time I get to the last line of this song, I am almost in tears, “I let my guard down, and then you pulled the rug, I was getting kinda used to being someone you loved” 😭😭😭 the “kinda” kills me especially, @lewiscapaldi thanks for making a magically heartbreaking song and making me get in my feelings every time I sang this 🥺
Capaldi could barely contain his joy in his own tongue-in-cheek response to Cabello on social media: “SALES OF THIS SONG ARE ABOUT TO SKY ROCKET CAMILA YOU ARE INCREDIBLE I NEED TO TELL MY MUM AT ONCE #CamilaMadeMeAMilly”.
He also posted a series of updates to his Instagram Stories, which you can see in the below rip, where he expressed his delight at Cabello’s cover. “We have no choice but to stan,” he says at one point.
While in the Live Lounge, Cabello also performed one of her new singles, ‘Liar’. Watch her rendition below:
Cabello is expected to release her sophomore solo album ‘Romance’ sometime this year. She teased the new record early last month with a cryptic video featuring a monologue about love, wonder and romance. In June, she collaborated with Shawn Mendes on the steamy chart-topper ‘Señorita’.
Cabello released her debut solo album ‘Camila’ last year after leaving the girl group Fifth Harmony in 2016. The record included the international smash hit, ‘Havana’.
