If you know Sade stans, you know we generally label moves like this sacrilege before even the first listen. And

in Jay Z’s case, much as I love Noah 40, we were justified.

The voice you are

about to hear is of a newly 18-year-old (turned today, in fact) MNEK. Bear this in mind as you take in his interpretation of Sade’s No Ordinary Love. Did he do justice to this immortal track? Shall we pop this or drop this?

    Very well done! Just because a song is a classic doesn't mean it can't be reinterpreted. I like that he gave it his own spin and his voice is killer!

    OMG! what are you guys smoking?! not only did he murder that vocal he managed to stay faithful to the music and make it current. kids his age have no idea who sade is! MNEK deserves props. POP IT!

    drop this! doing a cover of a Sade song is like doing a cover of an MJ song, that is is just not done!
