Sade has a new album coming out in November, it's her first album in nine years. A lot of people love her first album, 1984's Diamond Life, and I do too.  But my favorite is her last album, 2000's Lovers Rock. "By Your Side"... I don't even know what to say about that one. I remember working at Video Hits One, and once a week, someone from music programming would come to a meeting that I attended and show new videos - it was a fun part of the meeting, everyone talked and laughed during the videos. When they played "By Your Side" it just kind of floored everyone -- the beauty of the song just knocked everyone out. That's the power of music, not hype. Welcome back, Sade.
