*It should come as no surprise that Sade has a smash on her hands with the release of “Soldier of Love.” After all, it’s been 10 years since her fans had new music from her
According to industry trade magazine Hits Daily Double, based off of her debut sales effort on Feb 9, it’s predicted that “Soldier” will sell anywhere from, 400,000 to 425,000 copies within the first week.
Keep in mind that those numbers are an estimate that could be more or less affected depending on the recent winter blizzards occurring in the Mid-Atlantic region and thyis weekend’s bad weather in nthe South. No matter what, it looks like Sade will come out on top. BTW, vying for second place is Jaheim’s latest release “Another Round.”
Even the hip hop community can’t resist the charms of the now still gorgeous 50-year-old smooth operator. 24hiphop.com pointed out that Sade is getting mad love from hard head Busta Ryhmes and even Kanye West.
“This is why I still have a blog…,” West wrote. To be a part of moments like this … New Sade … How much better this than everything else?”
Busta to to Twitter to show his love for Sade:
“Sade is unbelievably incredible … Soldier of Love in-stores Feb.9th…Watch what happens…”
