Sade to take No.1 Spot On Billboard next Week
Thank God for talent like her, because music would be lots with all the garbage that is out there.
It will be the act’s second No. 1 album — its first came way back in 1986 with “Promise.” “Soldier of Love” is the first studio effort from the band — led by vocalist Sade Adu — since “Lovers Rock” was released in 2000. That set debuted and peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 with 370,000 sold in its first week.
Since its release, “Lovers Rock” has sold 3.9 million in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan. The new album’s title track recently became Sade’s eighth top 10 hit on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart — its first since “Kiss of Life” reached No. 9 in 1993.
