With mostly garbage Hip Hop inundating today's radio airwaves, some of us have been able to survive the R&B drought by queuing up Sade on our iPODs and dreaming of how life used to be. Well, dream no more: Sade Adu is returning with a new album for the lover in you!

We don't even care that the ravaging effects of Sade's rough life at the hands of her abusive husband is etched all over her face -- she's still beautiful to us!

According to Sony, Sade's long-awaited follow up to the almost decade old classic “Lover’s Rock” is in the can and ready to hit store shelves in February 2010.

I admit, I'm downloading the album if it leaks early, but I'm also buying two copies: one for the crib and one for the ride. Can't wait!

    THANK THE DEITIES FOR SADE.

  • KayCeiSoul

    YES - Real lyrics, real voice, real soul! I am so excited! THANK YOU SANDRA!!!

    I'm crying everyone's tears
    And there inside our private war
    I died the night before
    And all of these remnants of joy and disaster
    What am I suppose to do

    I want to cook you a soup that warms your soul
    But nothing would change, nothing would change at all
    It's just a day that brings it all about
    Just another day and nothing's any good

    The DJ's playing the same song
    I have so much to do
    I have to carry on
    I wonder if this grief will ever let me go
    I feel like I am the king of sorrow, yeah
    The king of sorrow

  • http://createspace.com/3393054 iscream

    Humm I just read she has a song with Maxwell on this upcoming CD. That sounds like a classic hit.

    &

    Akeys is pushing her album back so she can include a song with her and Beyonce. Wonder how that will sound.

  • Quitta

    Oh this is great! And I was just sipping on some white wine yesterday listening to Sade's "is is a crime"

  • kcicero

    :woot: my hubby loves her! I like her but have to be in the mood, this is going to be his father's day present, lol.

    Your love is king,
    crown you in my heart.
    Your love is king,
    never need to part.
    Your kisses ring,
    round and round and round my head.
    Touching the very part of me.
    It's making my soul sing.
    Tearing the very heart of me.
    I'm crying out for more.

    WHEW loves me some sade honey. i was raised UP on her....my momma still has her 1984 record diamond life where those lyrics came from. i got it on cd and done played it so hard (all of her stuff) there are blank spots of AIR on it in places....

  • free

    :yea:

  • waterlily_76

    A song with A Keys and Bey? Will it be with the "Sasha" Bey or the "Beyonce" Bey? I hope they prove me wrong, but that might be a train wreck. Bey better keep an eye on that chick. :coffee:

    Thank the heavens for this...just when I thought I would never purchase a CD again! I love Sade. I have every CD she's ever come out with. I saw her at the Jazz Festival in Jamaica when I was like 12. I've been a fan ever since!

  • Lexus

    Finally, REAL music!

    Well according to FakeReports.com (that got exposed), she's a heroin using overseas. SMH!

  • Lexus

    I meant heroin user overseas

  • mistarie

    I used to love Sade. "Sweetest Taboo". Loved it. But when I went to see her in concert with India Arie, I slept through her whole show. :coffee:

  • MOUTH

    I just turned 30, growing up my mom was a single mother and always blasting some Sade, day dreaming about the milk man, mail man, trash man, girl just any man, shoot she was in love. Humming like a wounded darn poodle, my older siblings could not stand it. :sad: I love Sade, once I was able to enjoy her without my mother’s howling, so I will definitely be buying her new CD.

    Believe me I will enjoy sending my kids through the same hell my mother sent us through. :dance:

    Well I know that she got banned from Jamaica for trying to leave the country with drugs awhile back. I don't know what kind of drugs though.

    Thank u jesus! for sending us REAL RNB I will cop her cd!

  • http://twitter.com/eastpointvet eastpointvet

    i love sade and love her more after she put my grandparents in her last video

  • kwall

    yes she is a long time rumored junkie. one record exec said the news already has her obit written in the UK. if you go and listen to her lyrics you will see she is talking about smack. she supposedly even used while preggers.

    sweetest taboo, tar baby (black tar is a form of heroin), never good as the first time....the list is long and sad but i love her anyways.

  • Uptown_Diva

    Long over due can not wait!!! Have a happy thanksgiving everyone!!

  • mirsmommy

    I grew up listening to Sade, as well as many others, so I can definitely appreciate her music.

    An Akeys and Bey-Nappy callabo???? :rolleyes: I wonder if Akeys will go half-naked for the video, or if Bey-Nappy will actually put on some clothes for the video??

    @ Kwall #19

    "Love is king" is my song. I still listen to that. "By your side" is the sugarhoneyicetea. I can't wait for her album. She is the real queen of R & B.

    @ Kwallace: WOW! That's deep. :surprised:

    Happy Thanksgiving to all!

  • LADYTEE

    I can't wait for her album to drop.

  • kalvonel

    You kept on think'n
    you were the only one
    too busy thinking
    love is a gun

    hit me like a slow bullet
    (bullet proof soul) - one her BEST songs ever - IMO

  • honeygrahm

    well it would make sense if the junkie rumors are true. Her music is so profound. It can be extremely depressing if you are in that mood but yet you don't want to turn it off. Almost like you want to drown in your own misery along with her.

  • trynabeme

    oooooooooooh, when your cooooooooooold
    I'll be there to hold you tight to me
    When your on the outside baby and you can't get in
    I will show you, your so much better than you know
    When you're lost and you're alone and you can't get back again
    I will find you darling I'll bring you home

    If you want to cry
    I am here to dry your eyes
    and in no time you'll be fine

    IN MY LIL JON VOICE, "Yeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaassssssssssss!"

    i gotta go back and listen to "never as good as the first time" cuz that's my jaaaammmmmm.

  • http://charactercorner.blogspot.com attorneymom

    I love Sade's music. There is a God somewhere.

    I luv her music...can't wait

    i've never heard about the junkie rumors...but :dance: @ her coming out with another cd! this is a must buy! :cheer1:

  • wtf

    now this is what i am talking about...had lost my copy of lovers rock and went to the music store the other day and got...i cant stop listening to it even if its old as hell..its way better than what is on radio good grief...i love her...cant wait...

  • LadeeA

    I fraking love Sade, she is in a class all by herself. :cheer:

  • Summers

    I LOVE Sade!!!! I can not wait for her album to drop!!! Also is it just me or does her and the late Aaliyah favor each other. I always thought this.

  • Sheena215

    I LOVE SADE HER MUSIC IS ALL THAT. I CANT WAIT FOR THE NEW ALBUM TO DROP. BY THE WAY WHATS UP WITH THE WALKING ON THE BACK OF THE SHOE LOOK?

  • http://twitter.com/giogas CWhatsHerFace

    Sade is a really talented artist! Smooth Operator was MY JAM! :cheer1:

  • Daisy

    Akeys cd is still dropping dec 15th she said so yesterday on the Today show

    I tweeted about Sade last night I can't wait on her new cd! She brings the heat everytime :cheer:

  • http://twitter.com/allthingsmwny allthingsmwny

    I didn't know she was a druggie... dang well I loved Lover's Rock

  • SweetP1984

    How old is she? This woman never seems to age.

  • Yanaja

    I haven't been so excited about music since Maxwell came out. I love Sade! (Maxwell's contributors are also her musicians)

  • KrayZKat

    YIPPIE!!! Yes, Sandra. I agree with you regarding the slop we have to listen to today, so I am SOOOO happy to see my girl, Sade, back on the scene. Her smooth, smoky voice is in heavy rotation on my iPod. Can't want for the CD to drop.

  • The Official Cheerleader 22

    HELL YES!!!!

  • bglamour

    I had no clue she was coming back! I'm sooo glad you posted this! I have EVERY SINGLE album of hers! Not to mention all of her music is on my Zune. Sade is indeed my favorite artist and I am elated that she's gracing the music world once again with her wonderful music.. I wouldn't be surprised at all if this album goes platinum like the rest of her albums did.... how many artists can say that ALL of their albums sold AT LEAST 1 million? Not many. We need her back, and I'm glad she's decided to do so. I wasn't even born when she came out with her first album, but my mom and grandma have a great ear for music and that's how I fell in love with her work... welcome back Sade!

  • laureninct

    This is no ordinary love was my jam as well as Smooth Operator!

  • Chgoprime

    I can't even stomach most of this mess thats out now. This is real entertainment. Just good timeless music.

  • tbrown

    This news GIVES ME LIFE.

  • talldrink

    There is a God and he heard me say, how much I hate this drivel that's been put out. He's rewarding my ears for being patient. Yeah!!!! lol

  • http://facebook.com/docjam Doc Jam

    My wife is back!

  • wiggy2272003

    I never knew she loved boy. I heard about her drug bust assumed it was weed I guess because her music is so mellow. But Kwall you're right with those lyrics it all makes sense. And her dissapering at the height of her career. I have a DVD of her in concert she needs no help in the studio. Live sounded just like the recordings.
    I am really stunned. And the obit stuff is sad.

    Tryna, I support the junkies too. Most really good art (I include comedians) comes from tortured souls. And a lot of them self medicate. Always been that way and always will.
    At least they are emplyed junkies. I love Amy too.

    Hope everyone has a safe happy Thanksgiving and don't let the "itis" hit you too hard

  • texarican mamacita

    Happy early Thanksgiving to everyone and be careful for all you black friday shoppers. Have a feeling there are going to be alot of loons out there hunting for bargains which most likely will lead to drama.

    I will be decorating the Christmas tree with my 3 year old who has been driving me crazy about the dang tree for 2 weeks.

  • misslee21

  • MsG

    I heard about her new CD coming out on Tom Joyner. I am so happy. I have her greatest hits in rotation in my car. I am so ready for real music again. "Nothing Can Come Between Us" and "Paradise" are my songs. Her music is classic.

  • MOVINONUP

    Now this is something that I can celebrate. I love me Sade.
