Sade has a voice that could melt even the blackest of hearts.

Everything from the way that she sings the songs to the actual lyrics has been well though out. She definitely takes her time before releasing a new album but its always worth it.

Every time I listen to her music it reminds me of a summer vacation I once took where I would just relax on a hammock by the beach and just drown in her music.

Here’s an interesting fact: The British singer/songwriter is actually named Helen Folasade Adu (I always though Sade was her first name).

Her mother was a British nurse and her father was Nigerian. She was born in Nigeria but when her parents divorced when she was 4 years old she went to live with her mother in Britain.

So here are some of my favorite songs by Sade. Enjoy!
