Sade, the iconic band led by the enigmatic Sade Adu, has been the subject of immense adoration for decades. Recently, it was discovered that David Morales’ remix of ‘Shelter,’ featuring samples from Sade’s ‘I Never Thought I’d See the Day,‘ is quite a rarity. This sparked a renewed interest in my existing collection of Sade dance remixes. Consequently, I embarked on a quest to find more of these gems, only to find a sea of fans and a plethora of unofficial remixes that echo my own enthusiasm for the group.
Sade’s Unwavering Global Influence
Let’s set the record straight: Sade hasn’t dropped a new studio album since 2010. Despite this hiatus, their fan base has not only remained consistent but has flourished. Their mystique and talent have captivated millions globally, and it’s about time we honor this iconic ensemble in our Diva Hall of Fame.
