Sade was formed in 1982, when members of Latin soul band Pride — Sade Adu, real name Helen Folasade Adu - born 16 January 1959 in Ibadan, Nigeria Stuart Matthewman and Paul Spencer Denman — together with Paul Cook formed a splinter group and began to write their own material. Later, in 1983, Andrew Hale joined Sade. One of the more popular numbers that the group would perform was a Sade original co-written with bandmember Ray St. In 1984 Paul Cook left the band. Despite the long absence, the fans did not forget her and the album sold out very well. All Sade albums were released through this label.

In essence, a few members within the main group Pride formed mini-groups that would be the opening act. This one is tagged Sade and is produced Sarz. Initially, the labels wanted to only sign Adu, while the group members wanted a deal for the whole band. Exhausted from concerts and unwanted attention, Sade decided to withdraw from the limelight and returned to the stage only in 1988 with her new work called Stronger Than Pride. She weaves a tale of mysterious and hard to maintain love, topics she has visited before in her storied career. .
After her mother returned to England, Sade grew up on the North End of London. She issued Lovers Rock in fall 2000 and incoporated more mainstream elements than ever before.

Steve McQueen directs the film, and Hans Zimmer will handle the music for the movie. The following year Adu joined the eight-piece funk band Pride as a background singer. Its history began in 1976 in London, when the popular funk and Latin soul band Pride needed a new female back-vocalist.
The newly-made band attracted more and more attention of the press, leaving Pride in the shadows, what eventually led to final partitioning of the two teams. Plans for this particular track were underway since last year where the singer released a teaser for the track. Then together with the saxophonist Stuart Mathewman several tracks were written for their side project bearing the name of its front woman and vocalist — Sade. Developing a good singing voice in her teens, Sade worked part-time jobs in and outside of the music business. On 18 October 1983 Sade Adu signed with Epic Records.

After a long world tour in support of the album, Sade moved to Spain, where she suffered through a short unsuccessful marriage to documentary filmmaker Carlos Scola.

Adding keyboardist Andrew Hale, the group signed to the U. She moved back to London, bought and old house and equipped her own recording studio in the basement.
