Music veteran Sade's comeback album, Soldier of Love, is projected to sell over 100,000 copies during its third week in stores.
Based on one-day estimates, the singer will likely reign supreme on the sales charts.
The Epic diva, whose Soldier of Love debuted with 500k in sales, will spend a third week at #1, thanks to those retailers still brave enough to keep their shelves stocked and their credit card machines oiled. Now if only getting a health care plan passed was that simple. The mysterious chanteuse's total next week will exceed 100k, meaning the #1 record through the first two months of the new year have all been in six figures. (Hits Daily Double)
The singer's album reached gold status after its first seven days in stores earlier this month.
Renowned singer Sade's Solider of Love runs the countdown once again this week remaining at No. 1 with 190,500 sold copies. According to Nielsen Soundscan, the singer's comeback album after a ten-year break has shelled out 693,600 records to date. (SOHH Sales Wrap)

The singer's presence has also been welcomed by rappers like Raekwon, who recently dedicated a rendition of Stevie Wonder's "Overjoyed" to her.
"Yo, what's up y'all, this is Raekwon The Chef," he said in a video. "This is dedicated to my peoples, Sade. Yo I love you baby. Dedicated to you, let's go. Over time, I've building my castle of love/Just for two, though you never knew you were my reason, I've gone much too far for you now to say, That I've got to throw my castle away/Over dreams, I have picked out a perfect come true/Though you never knew it was of you I've been dreaming/The sandman has come from too far away/For you to say come back some other day..."
