New Music from Sade...Soldier of Love

After a decade the band (who toured as Sweetback during the singer's hiatis) and the lady who provided the namesake have reunited. Many thought it was a rumor for a long time but the first single has its official release and I admit I kind of liked it immediately. It reminds me of Prince in his days of Purple.Rain with hard drum beats and a catchy melody.

Her voice seems to be different. A little deeper and a little less smooth. Kind of hard to tell but I wonder if age has changed it? Either is the much anticipated new single from Sade.

Peace & Blessings...


  1. I can't wait for this to drop. I love Sade, she sounds as if she hasn't lost a beat. I had this single on repeat on Friday.

  2. Honestly, this song was not what I was expecting. I guess I was expecting more a 'Sweetest Taboo' Sade. This sound is definitely gritty and I do think time has slightly altered her voice. Either way, I'm glad she's back and can't wait for the whole album.

  3. OH I'm loving it! I completely forgot about her new single but I thank you for the reminder. At first her voice was like a shock, a little different but after my 2nd listen to the song, it's the same ole...

  4. I loved her new song from the moment she sang the first line.
    I can not wait for her CD.
