Over a decade since their last release, Sade's 'Soldier Of Love' has topped the US Billboard chart, selling a phenomenal 500 000 copies.
'Soldier Of Love' marks Sade's second US Billboard chart topper, their first being 1986's 'Promise'.
Known for their one of a kind timeless sound, Sade has enjoyed phenomenal success both internationally and stateside throughout the span of their twenty-five year career. Since the release of their debut album, 'Diamond Life' in 1984 the band has seen all five of their studio albums land in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart selling a total of more than 50 million albums worldwide to date.
They’ve been nominated for American Music Awards, MTV Video Music Awards and have won three Grammy Awards – first in 1986 for Best New Artist, then in 1994 for Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group for 'No Ordinary Love', and again in 2002 for Best Pop Vocal Album with Lovers Rock.
Sade's 'Soldier Of Love' will chart in Australia this weekend.
