Sade

Sade (the artist and the group) has been blessing our ears with her sultry sound since the '80s. Her third single, 1984's "Smooth Operator," ultimately proved Sade's staying power, becoming a perennial. Three decades later, the music hasn't stopped. As a true testament to Sade's timelessness, Sade Adu toured major venues last summer and even collaborated with rap stalwart Jay-Z on her remix to "The Moon and the Sky."
