50 Years Later, A Beatles Record is Broken

50 Years Later, A Beatles Record is Broken


It seemed like a record that couldn’t be broken: when The Beatles released  their album Please Please Me in 1963, it held onto one of the Top  10 slots on the British album chart for 62 whole weeks, the longest run ever for  a debut album.

That was then. As of this week, the Scottish singer Emeli Sandé has broken  that record, according to the U.K.’s Official  Charts Company. Her debut album Our Version of Events, the  best-selling album of 2012 in the U.K. (1.82 million copies), has been in  the top 10 since February of 2012—or, 63 weeks.

Sandé told the Official Charts Company that she’s “completely lost for words”  since “The Beatles are the greatest band of all time” and tweeted a message of thanks to her followers: “This record is so significant to me for  many different reasons. I’m so happy and I’m thankful to you all. We made  history!! #OVOE

In the U.S., however, she has yet to break out: her single “Next To Me”  (which has made it to the No. 2 spot in the U.K.) is still sitting at 46 on the  Billboard Hot  100. But it’s already on its way up—currently sitting at its highest number  yet—and this historic news is sure to help it along.
