James Arthur’s “Can I Be Him” is headed to US radio.

Columbia confirms that the single will impact the hot adult contemporary format on June 26.

“Can I Be Him” is the follow-up to Arthur’s “Say You Won’t Let Go,” which hit #1 at Hot AC.

While “Say You Won’t Let Go” has peaked at the hot adult contemporary format, it is still on the rise (and trending Top 5) at pop radio. Columbia, accordingly, has not yet confirmed when the follow-up single will launch at that format.
