Sade and Other New Releases

Sade has long been on the hook-up playlists of many, since the group debuted back in 1983. You know, light some candles, throw your stuffed animals off the bed and put on some smooth R&B stylings from the classic British group.

Now the band is releasing their first album in 10 years, Soldier of Love, and if the success of the debut single of the same name is any indication (it had the highest debut of the decade on the Urban Hot Adult Contemporary charts), then the band's fans are still out in full force.

The album has a variety of sounds on the tracks, from reggae to soul. Singer Sade has said she doesn't make music unless she feels strongly about having something to say to the world, so it'll be interesting to see if the public agrees it was worth the wait.
