Emeli Sande - Sande Ends Rey's Reign Atop U.k. Album Chart

Singer Emeli Sande has ended Lana Del Rey's reign atop the U.K. album chart with her debut record Our Version Of Events.
Rey's album Born To Die dropped to second place after three weeks at number one and Adele's beloved 21 jumped to third, just a week after her long-anticipated comeback performance at the Grammy Awards.
Making Mirrors by Gotye entered at four and at five was Ed Sheeran's +.
In the U.K. singles chart, Hot Right Now, a collaboration between DJ Fresh and Rita Ora, grabbed the first place title and debuting at number two was Sande's Next to Me.
Gotye's Somebody I Used to Know featuring Kimbra fell to three and rounding out the top five were Titanium by David Guetta and and Flo Rida's Sia collaboration Wild Ones.
Although tragic singer Whitney Houston didn't win a top spot aboard either chart following her unexpected death last week (11Feb12), her greatest hits record has been in high demand - it rose 192 spots on the U.K. album chart, landing in at number seven.
