Sweet Spots


If there’s one thing I know, it is that I love Sade Adu. I absolutely love her. My love for her has never ever waned and never ever will. There is a certain mystic about Sade that is truly extraordinary.

If there was one word I could use to describe Sade, it would be MAGNETIC.

Sade - Black&White

The Nigerian-born singer-songwriter and former model born Helen Folasade Adu is the epitome of grace, poise, and elegance in every sense of the word. I am totally mesmerized by this woman and this here is an ode to Sade. In this post I list a few of the things that make me love her so, and please comment below if you know anything about Sade, and if you do, I would like to know how you feel about this gorgeous queen. Do you love her a little, a lot, passionately or not at all? Let me know where you stand…

So now let’s get to some of the things I love about Sade Adu.😍💖

Sade Signature Red Lip

I love her style.

I love how she always favours sleek, minimalist, retro silhouettes.

I love her freckles.

I love how she has forgone dramatic makeup looks and stayed true to her trademark strong brow, classic cat-eye and red lip.

I love how extraordinarily sensual she is without being overtly sexual.

I love how incredibly self-aware and introspective she is both lyrically and in her personal life.

I love how elusive and mysterious she is, living her life away from the public eye, which is even more precious in this age of hyper exposure.

I love how she has always been so evocative, consistent, and authentic as a person and a musician.

And her music, oh how I love her music! 😍😍😍

I love how she has always stayed true to her sound and style.

I love how she doesn’t feel the need to push out new music every so often just for the sake of it.

I love how impeccably smooth and unconventional her voice is.

I love how the essence of her music taps into my melancholy.

I love how her music has so much body and soul, conveying great passion and resolve.

I cannot end this post without coming up with a shortlist of my favourite Sade songs. While I love all music from Sade, her Lovers Rock and Love Deluxe albums are my favourite.

Not counting live albums, Sade has only 73 songs spanning her 4-decade career, and it was quite a struggle coming up with a list of my top 5 Sade songs … but here we go:

  1. The Sweetest Taboo [My go-to karaoke tune]
  2. Flow
  3. In Another Time
  4. King of Sorrow
  5. Cherish The Day

*BONUS: Immigrant and Somebody Already Broke My Heart

Sade’s sensuality is so effortless and ineffable. She is the quintessence of class and quality.

When I grow up I don’t want to be like Sade; I want to be Sade!

The love I have for Sade is simply No Ordinary Love
