Sade Expected to Top Next Week’s Album Chart

According to Billboard, Sade is set to top the album chart next week as the new set Soldier of Love is projected to sell between 375,000 to 400,000 copies. A year back, Taylor Swift’s Fearless moved 92,000 copies the same week. As WelcheMusic previously wrote, Sade hasn’t released any new albums since Lovers Rock in 2000. The album has so far shifted 3.9m copies in the US.

The lead single “Soldier of Love” hasn’t made any serious impact on the charts. So far, it has peaked at No.58 on the Hot 100 chart. It did manage to top the Billboard Jazz Songs chart. The song has also made the top 40 in  Sweden.

Countdown to February Release of New Sade Set

CHART SPOTLIGHT. There is a lot of anticipation for Sade’s February release of the album Soldier of Love. This is the first album since Lovers Rock was issued ten years ago, and the title track was released to radio in early December last year. Although Sade is an English group, Lovers Rock was a greater success outside the home country. While the set peaked at No. 18 in the UK, it reached No.2 on the Billboard 200.


One of WelcheMusic’s favorites, “No Ordinary Love,” was the lead single off the 1992 album Love Deluxe. It was originally released in 1992, but was re-released the year after finally peaking at No.14 in the UK. By then, it had also gained exposure in the 1993 movie Indecent Proposal starring Robert Redford and Demi Moore. Despite the recognition, it wasn’t included on the soundtrack. Instead, Lisa Stansfield’sIn All the Right Places” was the lead track.
