Her album Our Version Of Events remains in the top 10 of the UK Album Charts this week for its 63rd consecutive week. This means that Emeli’s first album has now overtaken the Beatles to officially become a record breaking debut, having spent more consecutive weeks in the UK top 10 than any other debut album

On hearing the news yesterday Emeli 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.”
