Emeli Sande's Our Version Of Events Goes 63 Weeks In UK Albums Top 10

Ok Emeli Sande’s marketing team; enough, we all know who she is now. We’ve all got her album. You can stop arranging for her to appear once roughly every two minutes somewhere on our TV screens, laptops or column inches. The Scottish singer’s debut album Our Version Of Events has just beaten a chart record set by The Beatles back in the 1960’s, by being the longest running debut album in the UK top 10.

Sande’s relentless march began back in February of last year when the album entered the charts and went on to become the biggest selling LP of 2012. However nearly five months after the end of 2012 it’s still not done yet, and is still nestling in the top 10 63 weeks after it first entered. Crikes. That’s now one week better than The Beatles Please, Please Me which lasted for 62 weeks in the top 10 between 1963 and 1964.

Some more stats for those of you brainwashed by the all-conquering power of the Sande: the record has sold 1.82 million copies in the UK, and has managed to go over 100,000 copies sold in a week on three separate occasions. Makes us almost miss the chart dominance Adele had back in 2011. Almost.
