Ever since the internet caught wind of Niall Horan and Lewis Capaldi‘s epic friendship, fans of both musicians have been seriously obsessed! The former One Direction crooner actually started their bromance after hearing Lewis’ single “Bruises.” Before they played onstage together during Niall’s Scotland show in March 2018, the “Slow Hands” singer slid into Lewis’ DMs and a beautiful friendship was born.

Now, Niall can’t stop gushing over his hilarious BFF in interviews and telling fans to listen to Lewis’ music.


“My cousin introduced me to his music when he had this thing with Vevo and less than 1,000 views on this song called ‘Bruises’ and I just heard his voice and was like ‘Oh my God, this guy is unbelievable’ … And I just wrote to him,” Niall recalled during an interview with SiriusXM from October 2019. “We were made for Lewis Capaldi. Exactly what you see is what you get. You’ll never be able to change that man. It’s the best thing.”

The duo even took a friendship test with Glamour in October 2019, and Niall recalled the first time he and Lewis met.

“First time I ever met him I just thought he was a lunatic, it was St. Patrick’s Day, we had a few beers … and we got very drunk, and then both played shows the next day,” the “Black and White” musician shared. “He’s very funny to be around, he makes me feel funnier, even though I’m not that funny at all, maybe it’s because I’m famous and he’s big into famous things these days.”


During the same interview, Lewis also praised Niall for reaching out to him before his songs became popular.

“All joking aside, before any of my music was doing f–k all, he was one of the first to reach out and say he loved my music and that meant a lot to me,” he gushed. Niall chimed in, adding, “He’s the funniest person I know, and I’m so proud of him.”
