Thanks to the success of her debut album, Our Version of Events, and its now-ubiquitous radio hit "Next to Me" (which recently got the remix treatment with a guest verse from fellow Lolla act Kendrick Lamar), Emeli Sandé broke through Stateside in 2013.

"Introducing my music over here is always fun," she says. "I love coming back, and each time it feels like more momentum is building."
