Lewis Capaldi Performs “Hold Me While You Wait” and “2002” on BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge
- Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi appeared on the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge to perform his latest song “Hold Me While You Wait” and Anne-Marie's “2002”.
“Hold Me While You Wait” was released earlier this month from his upcoming debut album "Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent".
Lewis Capaldi said of the song, “Hold Me While You Wait” is a song I wrote about the uncertainty of being in a relationship when your partner isn’t sure what they want. There’s an impending hopelessness to the whole thing, on both sides, when they’re not sure whether they want to be in that relationship or not. For me it’s one of the most desperate places you can find yourself in.”
“2002” was released by Anne-Marie last April, she co-wrote the song with Ed Sheeran. In the song, she references six songs released in the late 1990s and early 2000s, like Jay-Z’s “99 Problems,” Nelly’s “Ride wit Me,” NSYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye” and Britney Spears' “…Baby One More Time.”
She said, "It is all about that year, when I was that age just listening to that music that I loved at that time. You know, Christina Aguilera, Missy Elliott […] All of these songs. Yeah, it just takes me back to that time."
