A Sony source and Sade bandmate, Cottonbelly, have confirmed the Queen of smooth-jazzy-soul, Sade, is back in the studio!


Billboard also reports labelmate, Maxwell, shared his opinion on Sade’s latest material in a Facebook message to friends. He said, “Trust me, it’s so monolithic it’ll shake you in your shoes!”

Sade’s influence can be heard from Aaliyah to Amel Larrieux, and that’s just the A’s. (Black Music Month shout-out!) It’s been nine years since her last album, the well-received Lovers Rock.
