(Reuters) - Soul and R&B singer Emeli Sande returned to the top of the albums chart with her debut disc, toppling multi-award winner Adele, the Official Charts Company said on Sunday.

Sande's album "Our Version of Events" has notched up nearly a quarter of a million sales since its release three weeks ago.

Adele, who won a clutch of awards at the recent Grammys and Brits, dropped to number two with "21."

U.S. rocker Meat Loaf was a new entrant at number five with "Hell in a Handbasket," billed as his most personal album to date.

In the singles charts, Belgian-Australian multi-instrumental musician and singer Goyte, stayed in the top spot with "Somebody that I used to Know," featuring New Zealander Kimbra.

British rapper Dappy was a new entrant at number two with "Rockstar," featuring Queen guitarist Brian May.
