Crisp N' Fresh: Sade Goes Equestrian and Tackles The Battlefield of 'Love'

Monday, January 11, 2010

Music videos in the present sense don't impress me much. Sure I was gushing over Jay-Z's last week...but while visually stunning, the song was lacking. Never are two and two put together, where both the song and the video are knock-out-flat great. As the anticipation mounts for Sade's Solider of Love comeback, its time to partake in the visual aspect of the debut single, which, thankfully, feels exactly as the song projects. With a gloomy painted desert backdrop, billowing scarfs, horse mounting, and military meets home-on-the-range-esque theme, the Sophie Muller directed video does in fact compliment the song in a classic artistic western fashion. It is vintage Sade, as this video is linear to the visual looks of videos gone by (see "No Ordinary Love" , "By Your Side" and "The Sweetest Taboo") due to the shadow and minimalistic imagery effects, and of course Ms. Adu's flawless look. See this is a video where little goes a long way. Just lovely.
