Emeli Sandé could be considered part of music’s elite.

Beating out the legendary pop group’s 62-week reign with Please Please Me, the UK songbird recently smashed The Beatles’ record by charting for 63 weeks with her 2012 debut album Our Version of Events, a feat she didn’t see coming.

“I never thought with my debut album we’d be able to make chart history back home, so yeah, we’ve been celebrating all week,” she tells Vixen at the black carpet premiere of The Great Gatsby in New York.

She then received placement on the soundtrack of the Baz Luhrmann-directed flick, not just to harmonize over any beat but execute a cover of the Beyoncé hit “Crazy In Love.”
