Scottish singer-songwriter Emeli Sande made Official Chart history today! Her debut album — Our Version of Events — has now spent the most consecutive weeks in the Top 10 of any debut album (63 weeks so far!). She surpassed The Beatles’ previous record of 62 weeks.
Here’s a video of Emeli talking about her recent success:
When The Beatles released their debut record — Please Please Me — in 1963, their album spent a total of 62 consecutive weeks in The 10. Fast forward 50 years later, Emeli Sande can now list that on her resume. Will her album last another week or two in the Top 10? Only time will tell.
Our Version of Events has already sold 1.83 million copies in the United Kingdom alone.
Congratulations on all of your success thus far, Emeli! Best of luck to you in the future!
