Congrats to everyone at CAPITOL MUSIC GROUP as EMELI SANDÉ breaks the record set by THE BEATLES 50 years ago for the longest consecutive Top 10 run for a debut album release.
"Our Version Of Events" has been in the Top 10 for a staggering 63 weeks with sales fast approaching 2 million in the U.K. alone -- and over 3 million in sales worldwide.
