Niall Horan and Lewis Capaldi Busk in Dublin: Watch Videos – Billboard

Niall Horan and Lewis Capaldi are trying their hand at busking, and it looks like they’ve got some fans.

On Friday (August 5), the Irish and Scottish duo drew a huge crowd in Dublin after settling in with a guitar and microphone to perform the One Direction singer’s 2017 solo hit “Slow Hands.”

The crowd gathered around the two singers, who sang with fellow Dublin-based artist and frequent busker, Jacob Koopman, as Horan took his turn on guitar to play the song, which reached No. 11 on the Billboard charts. Hot 100 after its release in 2017.

“Because I love you so much/Yes, I love you, baby/Slow, slow hands/Like sweat dripping on our dirty clothes/No, there’s no chance/That I’m leaving here without you on me/I, I know/Yes, I already know that there is no stopping/ Your plans and those/ Slow hands (woo)”, sing Horan and Capaldi in the chorus of the song, with the help of the public.

Capaldi and Horan, with Koopman’s help on guitar, also sang other hit songs, including Coldplay’s “Yellow” and Capaldi’s “Before You Go.” The moment came full circle for Koopman: The singer-songwriter frequently documents his street performance on his YouTube channel and previously covered “Before You Go” live in Dublin in July 2021.

After the day filled with excitement, the singer took to his Instagram story to express his disbelief at being able to play with Horan and Capaldi. “I can’t believe I just busked with Lewis Capaldi and Niall Horan,” he captioned a photo of him smiling on his Story.
