For the second year running, the crowned Brits Critics Choice Award winner has charted highly at the top of the UK album chart, continuing the trend started by Florence and the Machine in 2009 . The first recipients of the Critics Choice Award entered the charts at number two with their debut release 'Lungs.'
Goulding, 23, was also the winner of the BBC Sound of 2010 poll late last year, and so far looks set to live up to the hype.
Posting on her MySpace page, the singer's record company Polydor wrote, "Ellie is on top of the musical world today."
Goulding is currently touring as support to Passion Pit -- playing at Norwich UEA tonight (Mar. 8), at Nottingham Rock City tomorrow (Mar. 9) and at London's HMV Forum on Mar. 11 -- before going out on her own headline tour starting at Bristol's Thekla venue on Mar. 25.
