Sade hit the music world in 1984 with her very successful debut hit album Diamond Life, which sold over six million copies and gave Sade the title of Best-selling debut ever by a British female Vocalist.
Diamond Life is the debut studio album by English band Sade. It was first released in the United Kingdom on 16 July 1984 by Epic Records and in the United States on 27 February 1985 by Portrait Records. After studying fashion design, and later modelling, Sade Adu began backup singing with British band Pride. During this time Adu and three of the original members of "Pride"-Paul Anthony Cook, Paul Denman and Stuart Matthewman-left the group to form their own band called Sade.

So what's the secret behind Sade's continuing success? When Robin Millar, who produced the band's first two albums, first met them in 1983 they'd never been in a proper studio. The 24-year-old Sade Adu had just finished studying fashion design, while working on her creative writing skills. They had some rough, homemade four-track demos of Your Love Is King and Smooth Operator that sounded like a funk band playing free jazz. The versions of Your Love Is King and Smooth Operator on Diamond Life are exactly the way they were at the end of that first week," Millar says. We never remixed them or remastered them. They recorded 15 tracks in six weeks. Then Sade insisted on cutting the album down to the nine tracks in which she most she believed. The label wanted to send a few tracks to the US for some "cool" mixes but Sade refused, saying the album was exactly how she wanted it.
Magazines such as The Face and Smash Hits had published cover features, intensifying anticipation for the album. Diamond Life not only distanced Sade farther outside any context in which they were placed, whether it was the sulking sophisti-pop fraternity or the increasingly mechanized realm of contemporary R&B, but also fulfilled the promise of the singles that preceded it. Rhythms that sensitively ripple and pulse at their most active, topped with deceptively cool vocals from Sade Adu - all coated with a luster - have a way of obscuring the depth of the material to casual listeners.
