Emeli Sande Claims Biggest-Selling Uk Album Of 2012 So Far
Although Adele just went Diamond with her ‘21’ album, Emeli Sande (real name also Adele) has snagged the top selling album of 2012 in the UK with her debut LP ‘Our Version of Events’. The album features tracks ‘Heaven’, ‘Next To Me’, ‘Daddy’ and other hits…
Adele followed closely behind at no.2 with other artists making it to the top 10 such as Ed Sheeran, Lana Del Rey and Rihanna.
The Official Charts Company said that although there is only one month left to go until the end of 2012, we could still see the top 10 best selling albums list change dramatically. Digital Spy reports the company as stating: “As Michael Buble demonstrated this time last year with his 'Christmas' album - which sold 1.2 million copies in the final quarter of 2011 - it is still possible for latecomers such as Olly Murs's 'Right Place Right Time', Girls Aloud's 'Ten', Jay-Z and Kanye West's 'The Throne 2', Tulisa's 'The Female Boss' and Bruno Mars's 'Unorthodox Jukebox' to make a huge impact on the year-end charts."
Here is the list as is stands thus far.
1. Emeli Sandé: 'Our Version of Events'
2. Adele: '21'
3. Lana Del Rey: 'Born to Die'
4. Ed Sheeran: '+'
5. Coldplay: 'Mylo Xyloto'
6. Mumford & Sons: 'Babel'
7. Jessie J: 'Who You Are'
8. Rihanna: 'Talk That Talk'
9. Paloma Faith: 'Fall to Grace'
10. One Direction: 'Up All Night'
