Today, singer-songwriter Alexander Stewart unveils the acoustic rendition of his viral hit, “i wish you cheated,” showcasing his piano expertise and elevating the emotional depth of the song while accentuating his powerful vocals.

Expressing his gratitude, Alexander reflects on the song’s overwhelming response, sharing, “I’ve been so blown away by the reaction to this song. I wrote it over a year ago sitting at the piano when I was in a pretty vulnerable place, and I always knew I wanted to put out that initial, stripped-back version. To see this song resonate with so many people online and hear the fans screaming the words back to me on stage every night has been incredibly rewarding as an artist. This is really just my way of saying ‘thank you’ to the fans.”

Last week, Alexander made his debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where he performed “i wish you cheated.” In a spontaneous moment backstage at 30 Rock, he and Jimmy Fallon collaborated on a TikTok duet, inspired by Alexander’s own series of TikTok videos.

The acoustic rendition of “i wish you cheated” follows Alexander’s recent tour with K-Pop sensation Eric Nam and his earlier North American tour alongside Charlie Puth. He also headlined his “Blame’s On Me” Tour, with shows in New York City, Los Angeles, the UK, EU, and Canada.

Alexander initially teased the release of “i wish you cheated” on TikTok as part of a viral campaign that garnered over 44 million views. The track has since accumulated over 25 million streams, contributing to Alexander’s impressive total of 300 million global streams across his entire discography.
