Michael Bublé Responds To Lewis Capaladi “Feud”
Michael Bublé has responded to Lewis Capaldi’s playful attempts to start a chart feud.
Earlier this week, Capaldi ignited a playful feud with Bublé, whose festive track It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas is currently 10 chart places ahead of Capaldi’s recent single Pointless.

“No one told me that it was probably a bad idea to release a song at Christmas, a song that has no reference to Christmas,” the Scottish singer joked to the audience when filming In Concert with Lewis Capaldi for BBC Radio 2.
“We’re really being hammered in the charts by Christmas songs. Not that it matters, but you know, these record labels want some money. So, if anyone sees Michael Bublé, you let him know I’m looking for him. I’ve got a gripe to grind with Mr Bublé!”
Bublé has now responded on TikTok, saying that he is “deeply crushed” that his music “could ever get in the way” of Capaldi’s song reaching Number One.
“It’s an amazing song and you’re an amazing dude, I am putting it on my Christmas playlist right now and I am telling you right now, Pointless is so beautiful,” Bublé said.
“If it doesn’t go to Number One, I believe Christmas should be cancelled, and maybe even Hanukkah. And maybe that’s too far, I don’t know. But I do know this: I love you.”
