Sade set themselves apart in the early ’80s with a smooth-as-butter sound melding classic R&B, rock flourishes, and slick soul production. And here, after an eight-year hiatus, the group hadn’t lost any of their class or genre-hopping skills. By Your Side employs a bouncing country rhythm, while The Sweetest Gift is all syrupy pop sweetness.
Lovers Rock, the title of Sade's first album of the 21st century, could be taken on many levels. Never before has the singer infused more mainstream rock elements (prominent strummed guitars) into her music as evidenced by the first single, "By Your Side. That's not to say that she has eschewed her own tried-and-true brand of smoky, dusky ballads.
Lovers Rock is the fifth studio album by English band Sade, released on 13 November 2000 by Epic Records. Following the release of Love Deluxe (1992), the band began an eight-year hiatus, during which time some band members began recording with American musician Maxwell and produced his debut album, Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite.

I am in the wilderness You are in the music In the man's car next to me Somewhere in my sadness I know I won't fall apart completely. When I need to be rescued And I need a place to swim I have a rock to cling to in the storm When no one can hear me calling I have you, I can sing to. And in all this And in all my life.
