Emeli Sandé – Our Version of Events

In her debut, Our Version of Events, Emeli Sandé channels her soul into pop ballads with her clear, strong, pitch-perfect voice. Standout moments are when she effortlessly maneuvers her way around various breakbeats. “Heaven” brings back that good old, drum ’n’ bass vibe and “Maybe” sports a thumbing, electric backdrop that lets her tells straightforward story: “When we first moved in together / Couldn’t keep hands off each other / Now we’re lying back to back / And silence in the black.”
