So it turns out that Sade — yes, Sade — was the highest-earning British music act in the United States last year, beating out even Adele. We figured you could use a pic of her whipping her hair in the wind. Why not?
has released the video for “Baby Father” just in time for Father’s Day

It’s new release Tuesday and you know what that means, hot stuff. It’s time to take the latest, raddest tuneage for a spin!
