Emeli Sand¨¦¡¯s explosive debut album, Our Version of Events has been such a hit that she¡¯s actually overtaken rock legends and music icons, The Beatles.
The Beatles held the record for most weeks in the UK Top 10 chart with 62 consecutive weeks with their Please Please Me album back in 1963. Emeli has clocked up a massive total of 63 weeks and doesn¡¯t look like slowly down anytime soon.
It¡¯s a pretty impressive statistic considering that almost two years ago, no one ever heard of Emeli and her jazzy beats. So much so that the artist herself was a little shocked that she had managed to actually top The Beatles in one-way or another.
¡°I¡¯m completely lost for words and this is something I could only have dreamed of. The Beatles are the greatest band of all time and their legacy lives on and continues to inspire all of us that make music,¡± said the new Queen of the Top 10.
¡°I¡¯m so happy that so many people have connected with the stories and the songs on the record, this really is our version of events now.¡±
Our Version of Events has been in the Top 10 since February 2012, selling a whopping 1.82 million units. Currently, the album is locked in number 5 on the chart ¨C and if the past is anything to go by, Emeli and her version of events will still be in the top 10 a little while longer.
