Emeli Sandé and Adele on course to top 2012's biggest selling albums list

Rhian Jones
Emeli Sande

Emeli Sandé and Adele have topped the list of the Official Chart Company’s Top 10 biggest selling albums as they stand right now.

With sales fast approaching a million copies (928,000) Sandé‘s Our Version Of Events is on course to be crowned the biggest selling artist album of 2012.

On the Official Compilation Albums Chart, Now That’s What I Call Music! 82 is currently leading the charge with sales of over 809,000 copies.

In the run up to Christmas last year, Michael Buble’s Christmas album sold 1.2 million copies in the final quarter of 2011. So there’s still a chance for late comers such as Olly Murs’ Right Place, Right Time, Girls Aloud’s Ten, Jay-Z and Kanye West’s The Throne 2, Tulisa’s The Female Boss and Bruno Mars’ Unorthodox Jukebox to make an impact on the year end charts. 

The Official Top 10 Biggest Selling Albums and Official Top 10 Biggest Selling Compilation Albums of 2012 so far are as follows.
