Lewis Capaldi turned down the opportunity to work with Camila Cabello becasue he didn’t want to be overshadowed.
The Scottish star refused to collaborate with Camila, according to a new interview with Music Week.
Lewis give Camila as an example of a huge name he refused to work with in the early days of his career.
“I said, ‘No, I’d rather have a number three by myself than a number one with a feature’ because it was still so new in America that everyone would think it was someone else’s song,” he said.
According to the singer, Camila was keen to collaborate on a version of Someone You Loved.
“Say f**king Camila Cabello did a version of it people would go, ‘Oh, that Camila song with that guy on it?'”.
Despite his resistance to collaborate with Camila, Niall Horan recently revealed that a a collab could be on the cards between him and Lewis.
Speaking at MTV’s European Music Awards in Seville, Spain, last night, Niall revealed that he’s written a song with the Scottish singer.
Lewis will be supporting Niall on his 2020 Nice To Meet Ya tour – so it’s not surprising that the two may do a duet.
