Snoop Dogg dreams of collaborating with elusive soul songstress Sade… ahead of Super Bowl gig

Super Bowl half-time show headliner Snoop Dogg still dreams of one day collaborating with elusive soul songstress Sade.

‘Maybe Def Jam and Universal can hustle that. I didn’t think it could happen,’ the 50-year-old rap superstar said in his Inglewood studio on Tuesday.

‘Watch out. We’ll put it in the air. Put a bat signal up saying, “You can call me.”‘

Snoop – whose favorite Sade song is Your Love Is King – wistfully recalled being mesmerized by the Nigerian-British 63-year-old at one of her concerts.

‘It had all kind of visual effects and s*** where she disappeared and she was at the top of the sky,’ Dogg (born Calvin Broadus) smiled.

‘[My friend] was like “Do you wanna go meet her?” And I was like [no]. I was nervous as a motherf***er. Like, nah. I was too nervous! “Nah I’m cool.” Gonna act like that I’m cool with a heartbeat faster than a motherf***er.

‘He was like, “Let’s go meet her!” And I was like “[No]. We gotta leave there’s going to be a lot of cars trying to get out of here.”‘

Sade (born Helen Fọláṣadé Adu) has not performed live since 2011, and she’s believed to have all but retired to her cottage in the Gloucestershire countryside.

On December 10, the four-time Grammy winner’s longtime saxophonist Stuart Matthewman have fans a glimmer of hope by writing on Instagram: ‘We’ll be out there again one day. Pinky promise!’

The 61-year-old Englishman told Rated R&B in 2018 that Sade and the band had been ‘working on a new album’ which will be released ‘when we’re happy.’

‘[Sade’s] not interested in the fame or any of that [other] stuff. She likes to put out art. So when it’s ready, it will come out,’ Stuart teased.

‘The record company knows there’s no point in nagging us or giving us deadlines. It doesn’t really help the process.’

Last year, the Smooth Operator singer promoted her T-shirt merchandise, and in 2020 she dropped a six-vinyl-album boxset called This Far.

But Sade hasn’t released new songs since 2018: The Big Unknown for Steve McQueen’s heist film Widows, and Flower of the Universe for Ava DuVernay’s Disney movie A Wrinkle in Time.
