Listen to Sade's First Song In 7 Years, 'Flower of the Universe'

The No I.D. produced track is the lead single from the 'A Wrinkle in Time' soundtrack.

Late last month, news spread that iconic Nigerian-British singer, Sade would release her first original song in over seven years, as part of the soundtrack for Ava DuVernay's A Wrinkle in Time. It is now time to rejoice, because the track, entitled "Flower of the Universe" is here.

Celebrated hip-hop producer, No I.D. shared the track last night via Twitter, "A legend, Sade it was an honor," wrote the producer.


On "Flower of the Universe," Sade's distinctive vocals flow seamlessly over No I.D.'s ambient, understated production. The song offers more of that quintessential Sade sound that we all know and love.

Last month, director Ava DuVernay expressed both surprise and excitement upon learning that the singer had agreed to make the track for the movie's soundtrack. Following its release, the director took to twitter writing: "A late-night treat for all you Flowers of the Universe. My thanks to No I.D. And thank you to Sade. You are a queen and a visionary and we love you."
