Emeli Sandé is undoubtedly the reigning queen of new British soul. The New York Times reports that her debut album, Our Version of Events, has now spent 63 weeks at in the top 10 of the U.K. album charts, besting the Beatles’ 62-week run with their debut, Please Please Me.

She’s also a co-songwriter on a group of tracks on Alicia Keys’ latest, Girl on Fire, including the kiss-off/self-affirming single “Brand New Me.”
