The singer’s debut album has managed to stay in the top 10 for 63 weeks!
Emeli Sande continues to take the music world by storm, with new reports revealing that her debut album Our Version Of Events has now smashed The Beatles’ debut LP chart record after becoming the biggest selling album of 2012 and staying in the charts for a whopping 63 weeks.
The singer’s debut album was released last February and quickly became the biggest record of the year, dethroning The Beatles’ Please Please Me as the debut album to spend the longest in the top 10.
It has now spent 63 weeks in the album charts’ top ten , smashing the record set by The Beatles nearly 50 years ago.
Please Please Me, the debut LP from Liverpool’s finest, spent 62 weeks in the top ten between its release in 1963 and 1964. Sande’s debut, which is sitting at No. 5 this week, has now sold 1.82 million copies and spent ten weeks in the No. 1 spot.
It has also broken the 100,000 weekly sales barrier on three different occasions during its time in the top ten.
Just this year it’s sold 429,000 copies and is the biggest selling album of 2013 so far.
Speaking to the Officials Charts Company Sande said: “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.”
“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.”
“I’d like to say thank you to everyone that has bought, played or shared my music in the last year, without your support this would never have been possible.”
