Since being released in February 2012, Emeli Sande’s debut album Our Version of Events has never left the UK album top 10 charts.

Whilst this is enough of an achievement 48 weeks after its release, Emeli gives herself extra reasons to celebrate by having a drink every time the album reaches the number one spot.

She told the Daily Star:

It’s an excuse to get drunk and celebrate every week. It’s great to see it continue to sell without actually pushing it too much. That’s what you want, for word of mouth to sell a record.

With Our Version of Events being charted at number one again this week, Emeli tweeted:


Considering the success of her first album, Emeli must constantly be drunk!
