Iconic singer says she would have asked Hov to rap on Soldier of Love if she could do it again.

Beyoncé, Rihanna and Alicia Keys can each claim at least one, but Sade, an icon for the ages, is still pining for that Jay-Z feature. The multiplatinum U.K. songstress says she has few regrets in a career that spans nearly three decades, beginning with her 1985 Diamond Life debut, but in a new interview, she cops to kicking herself over the cameo that wasn't.
"If I could turn back time? I would have asked Jay-Z to rap on Soldier of Love in 2010," the singer said in an talk posted on Hov's website, LifeandTimes.com, on Tuesday. While it's unclear whether Sade was referring to the chart-toping LP or the single of the same name, it's obvious she felt the rap titan would have enhanced the throbbing, bottom-heavy track.
The reclusive chanteuse gave the rare chat along with her longtime collaborator Stuart Matthewman, adding that it was uncommon for her to look at her choices in the rear-view. "There's not much else I would change — the mistakes I've made have made me grow braver."
And for those Sade super-fans surprised that the "Lovers Rock" crooner — whose catalog is emphatically short on features — would have made room for Jay to drop a few bars, know that a perfect day for her includes some real hip-hop.
"Yesterday, I was in my car. I listened to Drake's Take Care and Alison Krauss' Forget About It. It was a good day."Related Artists
