Congrats are in order for Emeli!

By On

Emeli Sande’s debut album Our Version Of Events has become the UK’s biggest-selling album of 2012 so far selling nearly one million copies.

According to NME, the list revealed by The Official Charts Company shows Our Version Of Events at the top of the list selling 928,000 copies and is expected to sell more by the end of the year.

Adele's 21 and Lana Del Rey's Born To Die feature in the chart as well as Paloma Faith's Fall To Grace at number nine.

The Official Charts Company's Dan Lane explains that this could all change before the year is over: "With the busiest shopping weeks of the year upon us, there is still everything to play for for the rest of the contenders."

He also shared his ideas and hopes of big Christmas sales with some albums yet to be released.

"Every year, the run up to Christmas sees a massive surge in CD sales and, increasingly over recent years, digital downloads on Christmas Day and Boxing Day."

"It is still possible for late comers such as Olly Murs’ 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’ Unorthodox Jukebox to make a huge impact on the year end charts."
