The CD, her first studio effort since 2000’s “Lover’s Rock,” will debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart next week, with industry sources estimating sales between 375,000 to 400,000 by week’s end on Feb. 14.

It will be the act’s second No. 1 album — its first came way back in 1986 with “Promise.”

“Soldier of Love’s” title track recently became Sade’s eighth top 10 hit on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart — its first since “Kiss of Life” reached No. 9 in 1993.
