Emeli Sande’s debut album Our Version of Events tops UK Album Charts | Music News

Soulful British songstress Emeli Sande has done what many predicted she would do and topped the UK Albums Chart with her critically acclaimed debut album Our Version Of Events. The deeply personal and reflective premiere project by the Glaswegian songwriter sold well over 100,000 copies to claim the top spot subsequently achieving UK Gold certified status the very same week her album’s third official single “Next To Me” entered the UK singles chart at number two.

Chart success is nothing new to the singer as she has previously triumphed in the UK single’s chart as a featured artist on singles by Wiley (“Never Be Your Woman”), British Hip Hop artist Professor Green (“Read All About It”) and the emcee formally known as Chipmunk (“Diamond Ring”). The former medical student, who dropped out of her degree in medicine at the University of Glasgow to concentrate on her music career, has also written for the likes of Tinie Tempah (“Let Go”), Susan Boyle (“This Will Be the Year”), Tinchy Stryder (“Til The End” and “Let It Rain”) and Wretch 32 (“Underdog Law”).

This new chart achievement comes exactly one week after Maverick Sabre entered the UK Album’s Chart at number two with his debut opus Lonely Are The Brave and goes someway to  help solidify the notion that the quality and commercial acceptance of British born Soul music is getting back to where it once was.

On behalf of the folks over here at Soulculture I’d like to wish Emeli Sande and her team a huge congratulations on the success of her incredible debut album.
