Exclusive: Sade’s Longtime Collaborator Says She’s Working on New Album

Sade is one of the few artists who can take a lengthy hiatus, drop an album, steal the show and take another break. The singer started her first disappearing act after she took eight years to release a follow-up to 1992’s Love Deluxe. After releasing her album Lovers Rock in 2000, Sade wasn’t heard again until 2010’s Soldier of Love.

It’s been eight years now, and Sade still hasn’t fully emerged from her music slumber to bless us with a new full-length album. She did, however, tease us with an original song (“Flowers in the Universe“) contribution to Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time soundtrack. Although, official solo music could be coming soon.

Sade’s longtime collaborator and famed British musician Stuart Matthewman — who is an original member of the band — exclusively tells Rated R&B, “We’re working on a new album.”

Matthewman says Sade and their creative team currently have “a bunch of songs,” that eager fans will hear once they’re satisfied with the final product. “When we’re happy, then we’ll let everyone else hear it.”

Like his comment in a previous interview with Rated R&B, “It might sound funny but we write and do music to please ourselves and just hope that [we] have good taste and other people will like it.”

Matthewman says Sade’s label home, Epic Records, respects her artistry and doesn’t pressure the release of new music. “The record company knows there’s no point in nagging us or giving us deadlines. It doesn’t really help the process,” he says.

While other artists are content with releasing music more frequently to remain in the limelight, Matthewman says, “[Sade’s] not interested in the fame or any of that [other] stuff. She likes to put out art. So when it’s ready, it will come out.”

Matthewman tells a funny, yet relevant story that perfectly sums up the expected time frame for Sade to drop new music. “Years ago, I think it was when ‘By Your Side,’ the song came out, and big posters were stuck around New York. Someone sprayed or wrote on top of it, ‘Bitch sings when she wants to.’ Sade loved it.”

Tone Stith Owns the Court in ‘Light Flex’ Video

Tone Stith brings out a vintage Lasonic boombox and colorful jerseys for his new video “Light Flex” featuring 2 Chainz.

In the active video, Stith and a few friends hit the basketball court to flaunt their impressive offensive and defensive skills. The five players also entertain us with flashy dance moves in the absence of 2 Chainz.

“Light Flex” one of the many songs on the Uncle Drew soundtrack, which was released on June 15. The star-studded soundtrack includes appearances from Khalid, Yo Gotti, Remy Ma, YBN Nahmir, Gucci Mane, G-Eazy, 21 Savage and more.

Before attaching himself to the Uncle Drew compilation project, Stith released a series of songs including “Long Run,” “Lonely” and “A Little Bit of Lovin‘.”
