The fourth and final single from their 1984 debut studio album Diamond Life, ‘Smooth Operator’ went on to become one of the biggest signature songs by the English band Sade

The song became Sade’s first American Top 10 pop single in the United States (peaking at #5 for two weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in May 1985) and ‘Smooth …’ went on to spend thirteen weeks on the Top 40 radio chart and was a #1 Billboard Adult Contemporary single for two weeks. Although “Your Love Is King” remains the British act’s biggest UK hit, “… Operator” is the band’s most successful, worldwide title.
