"Soldier of Love" is a single from the English recording group Sade. It premiered worldwide on December 8, 2009, and it was released on iTunes digitally on January 12, 2010. It is also the band's first new material in almost ten years, preceding their long awaited sixth studio album of the same name which was released worldwide on February 8, 2010. The song debuted at #58 on the Billboard Hot 100 becoming the band's highest debut on the chart.[1] It has since peaked at #52, making it the band's highest-peaking single since 1992's "No Ordinary Love".

Critical reception

"Soldier of Love" has been received positively from the music critics, who praised the bands' comeback. Pitchfork Media hailed the singer's "incomparable voice, which sounds as passionately poised as it did on 1984's Diamond Life."[2] The Hollywood Reporter gave also a positive review, saying that "It may be just a taste of what's to come, but Sade's latest definitely has its listeners at attention."[3] Digital Spy rated the song four stars out of five, and described it as "a bit of revelation - a rich, atmospheric pop symphony".[4] Rolling Stone called it an "amazing ballad of utter emotional devastation" as well as "classic Sade - a cool and collected song about falling apart."[5]

The track debuted at #11 on the Urban Hot AC chart, making it the highest debut of the decade and the third highest all-time on the Urban Hot AC chart.[7] It also debuted at #58 on the Billboard Hot 100 the song would peak within the top 50, and remain on the chart for eleven straight weeks.[8]. Since then, it has peaked at #6 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, officially making it their first top ten appearance on the chart since 1992 when their hit "No Ordinary Love" peaked at #9. The song became the band's first No. 1 on the U.S. Adult R&B chart. The song rose 3-1 in its sixth week, marking the chart's speediest ascent to the top spot since Anita Baker topped the chart in under five weeks with "You're My Everything" in 2004.[9] The single also peaked in #4 on the Greek Itunes Digital Chart.[10]

Music video

The "Soldier of Love" music video made its premiere onto the internet via Amazon.com on January 10, 2010. It was directed by famous British director Sophie Muller and choreographed by Fatima Robinson. The video, which is rich in odd symbolism, has left many viewers wondering what it means. It has a desert landscape and features soldiers dancing and marching along the song's beats, featuring Sade in a rodeo-esque style as she rides a white stallion, with smoldering and fiery explosions in the back. Sade has said that the soldiers in the video represent her emotions "in the battle ground of life".[11]
