Rita Ora Scores 3rd Consecutive UK # 1 Single, Emeli Sande Returns To # 1 On Albums Chart!

Roc Nation newbie Rita Ora isn’t playing y’all – the 21-year-old Jay-Z protegee has every intention of being the next Rihanna, as far as her relentless onslaught of # 1 singles are concerned. Rita Ora’s ‘How We Do (Party)‘ becomes her 3rd consecutive # 1 single (all within this year) on the Official UK Top 40 Singles Chart – debuting with sales of over 100,000 copies this week! All 3 of Rita’s singles have managed to cross the 100,000 mark in first week sales – including ‘Hot Right Now‘ with DJ Fresh and ‘R.I.P‘ feat. Tinie Tempah. I’m totally looking forward to the release of her début album ‘Ora‘ – it’s definitely shaping up to be one of the most highly anticipated debuts of the year.

Over at the UK Top 40 Albums Chart – the incredible Mizz Emeli Sande remains unstoppable. ‘Our Version Of Events‘, Emeli’s thoroughly flawless début album, not only returns to # 1 for a 4th week, but is also on course to outsell this year’s highest selling album so far – the mighty Adele’s ‘21‘. The album saw a surge in sales thanks to her performance at the 2012 Olympics Closing Ceremony, and it has already been certified double platinum for sales of over 600,000 units in the UK.
