Sade Returns with New Song ‘Flower of the Universe’

After a seven-year hiatus, Sade makes a blossoming return with her new track titled “Flower of the Universe,” lifted from the soundtrack for Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time. 

Over a light production, crafted by No I.D., Sade renders a strong but lulling vocal performance of the beautifully written record. “They hear you when you cry,” she sings on the chorus. “This love is far and wide / When you smile, the stars align / Flower of the universe, child of mine.”

No I.D. and the film’s director Ava DuVernay both shared the track on Twitter Monday evening (March. 5) with their own respective messages.

“Each song on the Wrinkle in Time soundtrack was crafted with great care in close collaboration with the artists,” DuVernay said. “My creative partnership with Sade on ‘Flower of the Universe’ was so connected that I reverse engineered the usual process and used her lyrics as actual dialogue within the film.”

702’s Meelah Returns with New Song ‘Desert Love’

Meelah, of R&B group 702, took a short hiatus from her solo career but she’s back. The R&B vet returns with “Desert Love,” a smooth jam produced and co-written by J-Trx.

Backed by an enticing beat, Meelah finds herself all in her feelings thinking about the good times with an old lover. She wishes she could take him back but she can’t seem to get passed the errors of his ways.

Meelah was on the verge of releasing his debut album a few years ago but the stars were not aligned for her to successfully drop it. Now, with the support of her new label home, SoulStar Music Group, Meelah is ready to share her new music with the world.

“Timing is everything,” Meelah said in a statement. “Releasing a project has been a long awaited moment for me so when SoulStar Music Group approached me I was truly humbled and excited to record my debut solo album.”

“Desert Love” is just an appetizer before Meelah releases the official first single from her untitled debut album, which is set to be released on SoulStar Music Group / eOne Music later this year.
