Sade's Stunning Sales Debut At #1

This is worth a big nod of congrats to EPIC and SADE's "Soldier Of Love" CD which debuts at #1 on the SOUNDSCAN chart selling 501,665 units, and it's ranked #1 in STREETPULSE, too.
To put this in perspective, only two albums last year debuted with over 500,000 sales, so this is a noteworthy achievement.
SADE's last album -- released 10 years ago -- debuted with just under 370,000 sold in the 4th quarter of 2000, when the CD sales market was at its peak. "Soldier Of Love" spent 4 weeks at #1 on the Urban AC and 2 weeks at #1 on the Smooth Jazz charts.
