Emeli Sandé takes album number one

Emeli Sandé has two reasons to celebrate this weekend. Her debut album has claimed the number one spot from Lana Del Rey.

The debut is 2012's second fastest-selling number one so far with sales of 113,000 copies. She also managed to reach number 2 in the singles chart with 'Next to Me'. Lana Del Rey moves down one to number 2.

Gotye took the number 4 spot with 'Making Mirrors'. The Belgian-Australian indie-rock favourite has had a recent run of chart successes with his smash-hit single 'Somebody That I Used to Know'.

Whitney Houston hits number 7 with 'The Greatest Hits', her collection of hit singles, as people rush honour the memory of the late singer.

Adele secures both the number 3 and number 9 places with both '21' and '19' respectively on the heels of her successes at the Grammy Awards earlier this week.
