*Ebony magazine has landed the sizzling hot Sade for April, 2010 cover and feature story.

The reclusive singer who’s topping the charts with her first recording project in 10 years, “Soldier of Love,” gave Ebony a peek at what goes on in her world.

“I’ve had my ups and downs in the years between these albums, said Sade. “That’s partly why I’m able to write songs that people in some way can hear. I express feelings, real feelings.”

Look for the April issue on newsstands March 9.
