Sade just released her latest album Soldier of Love to rave review and a very warm welcome, but lets take it back to when Sade first stepped foot into the spotlight. The year was 1984 when she debuted with Smooth Operator, for which she won Best New Artist at the 28th Annunal Grammy Award Show in 85′.
Wow! I wasn’t even in high school, yet I remember every one of her songs from that album, a testament to good music being just that, GOOD music, regardless of the maturity of the content. Her material was always respectful and sincere and it seems she rediscovered the recipe for her latest contribution. Cheers to the Smooth Operator.
And dont forget about this Smooth Operator from Brooklyn.
