Sade Talks Jay-Z Collaboration

Sade doesn’t have many regrets in life, but does regret not working with Jay-Z in 2010.

In a recent interview with Life + Times, Sade opened up about her lost Jay-Z collaboration on her 2010 album, Solider of Love.

“I would have asked Jay-Z to rap on ‘Soldier of Love’ in 2010,” Sade said to the blog. “There’s not much else I would change – the mistakes I’ve made have made me grow braver.”

While she wasn’t able to have Jay-Z appear on the title track, the two were able to collaborate on the remix for “The Moon and The Sky” for her 2011 The Ultimate Collection compilation album.

The veteran singer also praises the sampling in hip-hop and revealed she’s flattered whenever one of her songs is “recycled”.

“I love when our music is reclaimed to make something new,” Sade said. “It’s like musical recycling. I always see it as a compliment.”
