CAPALDI LEADS ASCAP LONDON HONORS

Lewis Capaldi was the big winner at this year’s virtual ASCAP London Music Awards, taking home four gongs including Songwriter of the Year for his two U.K. #1 hits, “Someone You Loved” (UMG) and “Before You Go.”

“Someone You Loved” also scooped up Song of the Year and Top Streaming Song, while “Before You Go” was named a Winning Hot 100 Song. Both are on Capaldi's phenomenally successful debut, due to be followed up with a new set next year.

“RITMO” (Epic), co-written by Pete Glenister and performed by Black Eyed Peas and J Balvin for the Bad Boys for Life soundtrack (and featuring a sample of Corona's 1995 "The Rhythm of the Night"), was given two awards, for Top Hot Dance/Electronic Song and Winning Hot 100 Song.

The 2020 summer anthem “Head & Heart” (Asylum) by Joel Corry f/MNEK was named Winning Hot Dance/Electronic Song, honoring writers MNEK, Neave Applebaum, Robert Harvey, Lewis Thompson and Leo Kalyan.

Top songwriter Steve Mac was recognized with a Winning Hot Dance/Electronic Song Award, along with Bastille’s Dan Smith, for the chart-topping “Happier” (UMG) by Marshmello f/Bastille. 

Other winners included Becky Hill and co-writer Conor Blake Manning for “Lose Control” (Polydor) with Meduza (Winning Hot Dance/Electronic Song), Jasmine Thompson for co-writing “Funny” (Atlantic/Interscope; as performed by her and Zedd) and Sam Gray for co-writing “Takeaway” (Disruptor/ColumbiaChainsmokers & Illenium f/Lennon Stella).
