"The Sweetest Taboo" is the lead single from the English group Sade's second studio album, Promise (1985). While the song peaked at number thirty-one on the UK Singles Chart, it fared considerably better in the U.S., where it reached number five on the Billboard Hot 100 in March 1986, remaining in the top forty for thirteen weeks. It also became the band's second consecutive number-one hit on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart, following "Smooth Operator".

"The Sweetest Taboo" is mentioned in the lyrics of Prince's 2005 charity single "S.S.T.", as well as in Mos Def's 1999 song "Ms. Fat Booty".
The French duo Les Nubians recorded a song called "Tabou" on their 1998 album Princesses Nubiennes, credited as a French adaptation of "The Sweetest Taboo", although the lyrics are significantly different.

British artists Glamma Kid and Shola Ama sampled the song in 1999 in a somewhat more upbeat version with both a ragga and R'n'B feel to it. It was released as a single only.
This song, along with "Smooth Operator", was included on VH1's programme 80 Hours of the 80's in 2008.
