STORMZY paid the ultimate compliment to Scotland's chart-topping star Lewis Capaldi - by covering his hit track.

The rapper belted out Someone You Love during his headline set at the Glasgow Green last night - despite saying he couldn’t sing.

Stormzy heaped praise on Lewis, who is due to play the event tomorrow, saying: “I think he’s a legend, I think he’s a G and a hometown hero of yours. I love to get in the car and listen to this – it’s very dear to my heart.” 

Someone You Love hit the number one spot when it was released late last year.
