Those of you who’ve been following Soulection for a while know that this Sade tribute has been in the works for a long time. To celebrate the fact that they reached 200.000 followers on Soundcloud, the Los Angeles collective decided to release the project as well as making their full discography available to download for free for the next 24 hours on their website. Love Is King contains twelve Sade-inspired tracks by a fine selection of Soulection producers such as J-Louis, LAKIM, Singularis, Chris McClenney, Esta. and Abjo while the artwork was made by the incredibly talented Sara Golish.
The ‘Love Is King’ compilation is a tribute to one of our favorite artists, Sade. The British, Nigerian singer, songwriter and composer has always had a timeless, nostalgic and chilled out sound. We’ve all grown up with her in the background as many of our parents raised us on Sade. Her style/songwriting just makes you feel at ease, comfortable and is familiar.”
