Today, we’re not just trying to predict who will win an Academy Award this year, we’re also wishing Sade a very happy 55th birthday!

Their debut album, Diamond Life , was released in 1984, the same year that Sade's best known and most successful single to date, 'Smooth Operator', was released.

Diamond Life won Best New Artist Grammy award and Sade has continued to release albums over the years - the most recent, Soldier of Love, issued in 2010, as well as a Best Of Compilation.
Sade has sold over 110 million albums and is the most successful solo female artist in British history.
Happy birthday Sade!
