Shotgun by George Ezra was a UK number 1 hit on Thursday, July 5, 2018 spending 2 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. George Ezra told The Sun he penned the tune after spending time up Montjuïc hill in Barcelona. The Spanish city had previously been the source of inspiration for "Barcelona," one of Wanted on Voyage's tracks, and Ezra chose to take a break in the seaside location after struggling to unwind following touring his debut album. Ezra stayed in a Barcelona apartment owned by a woman named Tamara, from which the album derives its name. About a minute into the song, just as Ezra is about to sing, he makes a noise which many people decided was a burp. The song returned to #1 on the UK singles chart, six weeks after dropping from the summit. Ezra said that he attributes the song topping the tally for the second time "as everyone was checking out to see if I burp."
