Currently on the UK leg of his Club Paradise tour, Drake had a special fan in the audience in the form of soul singer, Sade. Being a huge fan of Sade, Drake immediately tweeted about the encounter, even calling it a “top life moment.”
Sade watched the rapper/singer perform his hits at the Birmingham show, and made time to meet Drake and let him know that she was a fan of his music. Drake tweeted, saying, “Sade came to Club Paradise last night and told me how much she loved The Motto…top life moment…had to share.”
This must be a huge ego boost to him as back in 2010, before he’d released an official album, he made it clear how much he would love to work with Sade. Speaking to MTV, he said, “Hopefully there will be a great Drake and Sade record for people to listen to, and hopefully it’ll be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made” However, Sade had to turn down the offer.
“I don’t think they have contacted me,” Sade told Canada’s National Post. “I’ve never collaborated because I’ve always avoided working outside my safety zone. I wouldn’t want to work in a situation where I am expected to deliver, because I think I wouldn’t deliver.”
