Diamond Life (Reviewed by Iluvthe80s):

This was the debut album for former model Sade in 1985. The album sold 2 million copies and won her a Best New Artist Grammy at the Grammy Awards.
This album is full of smooth, jazz influenced songs. I definate album to listen to while relaxing. Sade is one of the best at slow love songs.

My favorite tracks from this album are: "Smooth Operator", "Your Love Is King", and "Hang On To Your Love".


1. Smooth Operator
2. Your Love Is King
3. Hang On To Your Love
4. Frankie's First Affair
5. When Am I Going To Make A Living
6. Cherry Pie
7. Sally
8. I Will Be Your Friend
9. Why Can't We Live Together?

Response to this review by Steve Savicki: I have that CD and play it back to back with Betty Wright's "Sevens" from 1986, a year later.
Her song, "Are you gonna stand by me" just makes Sade pop into my head. It's as though I can imaging Sade remaking that song. I'm thankful I got "Sevens" before it went out of print. Back to Sade, "Diamond Life" was my favorite album from her..

Response to this review by Trixter: This album is fantastic!! I listend to it's smooth jazzy pop for hours on end. My favorite songs were, "Smooth Operator", "Cherry Pie", "Frankie's First Affair" & "Your Love Is King". What a great singer!

Response to this review by Flix: I can't get enough of Sade. This album is one of her best!
