The song peaked at no 1 on the Danish airplay chart, and held the position for three weeks straight.
After playing his debut concerts in August ’17 – sold out in only four days – Hugo announced his first tour bringing him to more than 20 cities during winter and fall 2018.
Several Danish media have drawn comparison to Canadian pop star Shawn Mendes
, and Hugo’s debut single is a vigorous pop song about toning down the self-presentation on social media. Hugo explains:
“Everyone’ s so eager to stage this picture perfect life on social media, but of course nobody’ s perfect. It’ s such a shame that it’ s the norm for most people to present themselves in this superhuman way. ‘Please Don’t Lie’ is a kind reminder to everybody – and first and foremost myself.”
