Emeli Sandé smashes 100k sales with #1 debut album
BRITs Critics Choice winner Emeli Sande today tops off what has been an incredible twelve months for the Scottish singer/songwriter. Her debut studio album, Our Version Of Events, today topples reigning queen Lana Del Rey from the Official Albums Chart throne, as well as becoming 2012’s second fastest-seller so far - smashing the 100k sales barrier with a first week sale of over 113,000 copies.
The album features Number 2 single Heaven, Daddy, and the more recent single, Next to Me. Emeli also had a Number 1 hit single in 2011 with rapper Professor Green; Read All About It broke Rihanna and Calvin Harris’ We Found Love initial three week run at the summit of the Official Singles Chart where it stayed in the top spot for two weeks.
