Beatles Record Broken By Emeli Sande

Emeli Sande is the latest superstar to takeover the British music scene and proof of that comes with news that she has broken a UK charts record that was set by the Beatles 50 years ago.

Her 2012 debut album, Our Version of Events, has just beat the record set by the Beatles with "Please, Please Me," after her album logged 63 weeks in the top 10.

The album has sold close to 2 million copies in the UK and 3 million copies world wide and claimed the No. 1 spot on the UK charts ten times during the past 63 weeks.

Our Version Of Events was also the biggest selling UK album of 2012, according to Capitol Records and is the biggest selling album of this year so far.

"It feels quite surreal to even have your name mentioned in the same sentence as The Beatles," Sandé told Reuters. She considers the Fab Four "the greatest band of all time."

Will all the success she has achieved in the UK, she now turned her focus to conquering America. "The United States … is a brand new challenge," Sandé said according to the Guardian. "You have to understand the market, the people, you really have to take into account how massive the place is … It's chapter two of this whole big thing."
