Roc Nation newbie and Jay – Z’s new protegee Mizz Rita Ora’s UNSTOPPABLE y’all! After scoring 3 consecutive # 1 singles this year, the British singer-songwriter roars in at # 1 with her début album ‘ORA‘, sealing the deal that she’s here to S-L-A-Y! Rihanna who? As I’ve consistently (and relentlessly) maintained, y’all might not wanna sleep on this girl, cuz she means business. It’s a matter of time US Radio, forever at the forefront of pioneering musical trends, jumps on her, like they did on Ellie Goulding, just a mere 2 years after she released her début album in the UK. So Rita should be topping the Billboard Charts by 2014 approximately. Be very aware.
Go Slay-ita Ora!
Meanwhile the flaw-free Emeli Sande continues to break new ground as her début album ‘Our Version Of Events‘ overtakes the mighty Adelegend’s ‘21‘ as 2012’s highest selling album in the UK! Extremely well deserved achievement here. The 25-year-old neuroscience student from Aberdeenshire’s album has sold 659,000 units in the UK so far, and on its 29th week on the chart, surpasses Adele’s ‘21‘ by 3,200 units, placing itself at # 2 this week. ‘21‘ moves down a notch to # 16 this week on its 84th week on the chart.
Over at the UK Top 40 Singles Chart, British girl-group and UK X-Factor winners Little Mix score their second # 1 single as ‘Wings‘ flies in at # 1 with 107,000 copies sold in the UK this week! The group previously topped the charts with their début single ‘Cannonball‘ released after their win in season 8 of X-Factor.
