Sade is back. The iconic songstress releases her first song in seven years, “Flower the Universe,” which is featured on the soundtrack to Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time.
Over No I.D.’s melodic production, Sade delivers her powerful-yet-soothing vocals. “They hear you when you cry,” she sings. “This love is far and wide / When you smile, the stars align / Flower the universe, child mine.”
A Wrinkle in Time director Ava DuVernay celebrated the elusive British singer-songwriter, writing, “You are a queen and a visionary and we love you,” while No I.D. added, “A legend…Sade, it was an honor.”
The soundtrack to A Wrinkle in Time also features Kehlani, Sia, Demi Lovato, and Chloe + Halle, while the movie stars Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, and Storm Reid. Both are due Friday (March 9).
