 Sade, a Smooth Operator, sings of No Ordinary Love, and Is That A Crime?   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Sade Adu sings in “Slave Song” the lines “I pray to the Almighty let me not to him do as he has unto me. Teach my beloved children who have been enslaved to reach for the light continually” over an almost stuttering rhythm, an almost tribal beat, possibly a form of syncopation.
Adu’s line readings of “Jezebel” are careful, incisive, both sympathetic and tough as she mimes the character’s dimensions.
Most importantly, with this song, as with others, it is easy to see that Sade Adu extends to people very different from herself a friendship, love, and sympathy similar to that she feels for her intimate acquaintances, making inequality of wealth, making politics, deeply humane, intelligent, and a fit subject for art.
