Our Review

Sade seemed to emerge from some unknown world, a mysterious beauty with a sound that seemed to invent itself. In reality, she was born Helen Folsade Adu in Nigeria and raised in England, a young soul fan who fell into playing music while attending St. Martin’s College for fashion design. Beginning with 1984’s stunning Diamond Life, Sade and her eponymously-named band (Stuart Matthewman, guitar; Paul Spencer Denman, bass; Andrew hale, keyboards) released four albums, all of which spawned multiple hit singles. Sade’s albums offered the glossy, modern production beloved by the Eighties, but the songwriting, singing, and subtly intricate performances eschewed the decade’s cheap and goofy gimmicks for something sincere and soulful. In an era dominated by Wham and Wang Chung, Sade embodied the delicate artistry of Seventies soul masters Roberta Flack, Curtis Mayfield, and Bill Withers. All the timeless hits are here — from “Smooth Operator” to “Cherish the Day”— but it’s “Is It A Crime” and her cover of Percy Mayfield’s 1952 “Please Send Me Someone To Love” (recorded for the Philadelphia soundtrack) that reveal this empress of seduction to be a blues singer at heart.

Sade Never Ceases to Amaze (5 stars)
I had this album since I was a little kid, drining into NY city, and "Smooth Operator" and "Is It A Crime" are my favorite songs on this album, and it is what almost every pop star is trying to copy- if you like music, buy this album. NOW.

One of my favorite albums (5 stars)
This is a great album. Love every song. Never tire of listening to it.

Biography

Formed: 1983 in England
Genre: R&B/Soul
Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

When singer Sade and her band of the same name were establishing themselves, their record company, Epic, made a point of printing "Pronounced Shar-day" on the record labels of their releases. Soon enough, the music had no problem with the correct pronunciation. With the breakthrough Billboard Hot 100 Top Ten single "Smooth Operator" propelling the debut Sade album, Diamond Life, to the same spot on the Billboard 200 chart in 1985, the band fast came to epitomize soulful, adult-oriented, sophisti-pop....
