While Adele continues to conquer the world with her record-breaking 21, an honest collection of bluesy, rollicking odes to heartbreak and sorrow (which is still the best-selling record of 2012, despite being released last year), England may well have just found themselves their next humble hometown glory by the name of Jessie Ware.
On May 3, Sade will release The Ultimate Collection, a 2-CD, 29 track collection of the group’s most iconic songs, including four brand new tracks.
The legendary front-woman of the group has already uploaded three of the four new tracks from the collection, including “I Would Have Never Guessed,” “The Moon And The Sky (Remix feat. Jay-Z)” and my favorite of the bunch “Love Is Found,” which wraps Sade’s signature cooed vocals around sharp piano chords, grinding guitars, orchestral strings, horns and a wicked hip-hop beat. It’s fantastic!
For Muusers who’ve yet to be properly introduced to Sade, this is the truly the best way to begin exploring their discography! Click “Read More…” to see the full tracklisting.
The album is currently available for pre-order at Sade’s official website, which also includes an accompanying DVD. Sade will be touring this summer–check here to see all of the concert dates. (iTunes)

What? Oh. Just kidding. It’s Matt Cardle.
As I said in my wrap-up of the final performance night, I blame Christina Aguilera for Rebecca Ferguson‘s loss.
I like Matt, but you’d have to be a damn fool to believe he’s going to push more albums than anyone else this season.
For now I shall eagerly await Rebecca’s Natalie Merchant-meets-Sade record full of icy boner jams, and what will surely be an era-defining, swagga-riffic, smash hit debut by the soon-to-be legendary Cher Lloyd.
TEAM CHER 4 EVA.
See you for next year’s flop-fest–the very first US X Factor!
THIS IS IT, as one of the X Factor judges
famously sang 17 years ago (oh my God, 17 years?!): The STAR-STUDDED X Factor final show is finally upon us!
And thank God, because I’m totally over it.
Above is the video for “Babyfather,” the second single off of Sade‘s incredible February release, Soldier of Love.
From the deserts of “Soldier of Love” and into the kitchen, Sade has certainly made quite the about face for her band’s latest video. How gorgeous does she look here? Unbelievable. Lush colors and warm energy follow, resulting in an appropriately sunny video to coincide with the changing season.
This woman makes me believe there is still good in this world.
