Sade's 2010 album Soldier Of Love didn't seem to get too much attention from the media this year. but Sade's fans don't really need the media to sell them on records.  It was their first album in a decade, and the fans were ready for some new music.  But it did hit #1 on the charts, and it was one of the top ten selling albums of the year.

I'm glad that Sade got two Grammy nominations: "Soldier Of Love" is up for Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals and "Babyfather" is up for Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals (Sade is a band, it doesn't just refer to the singer, Sade Adu, but also guitarist Stuart Colin Matthewman, bassist Paul Spencer Denman and keyboardist Andrew Hale).

I actually thought that the album might have gotten a ton of nominations, but I believe that that didn't happen because it came out so early in the year, and also that it didn't much media hype.  That may change next year when Sade hits the road with John Legend opening.
