Surprise! After it was brought to my attention that the David Morales remix of ‘Surrender’ (which heavily samples ‘I Never Thought’) featured in volume 3 of the Legacy series was virtually non-existent, I decided to dive deeper into my collection of Sade remixes and then went on a hunt to see what all was out there. As it turns out, there are a multitude of fans (as myself) and a boatload of bootlegs to accompany the fervor surrounding this band and its beguiling lead singer. This attests to the worldwide fanaticism at the heart of a group that hasn’t released a new studio album since 2010.
On a personal front, Sade literally was at the center of a life-changing experience I had in 1988. I was in a really bad head-on car collision where I wasn’t wearing my seatbelt and went through the windshield of my car and ended up on the hood of the other car. The ONLY thing I remember was ‘Nothing Can Come Between Us’ was blaring out of my car speakers at the time. To this day, I cannot recall the events that took place other than that song was playing. That accident sent me down a long path of recovery, a slew of doctors and a HIV+ diagnosis. So yes, this was a moment that had a profound impact on my life even if I can’t remember all of the details.
Despite all of that, my love for the group and the drop-dead gorgeous lead singer has never faltered and when I listen to NCCBU I get nothing but warm fuzzy feelings all over.
I am banking that there are a multitude of you who are Sade fans as well. As such, I decided she/the band have earned a rightful place in the Diva Hall of Fame. Having sold 75 millions albums worldwide and with legions of fans, I present to you Sade, the Diva Series.
