Sade released two versions of "Flower of the Universe," one of which features production from No I.D.
For those of you who need calming energy today—maybe because Winter Storm Quinn forced you inside and you can’t do anything but reflect—here’s a sonic treat for you. Veteran R&B artist Sade broke nearly seven years of musical silence with a new song, “Flower of the Universe.” She posted a lyric video for the song, which appears on the soundtrack for “A Wrinkle in Time,” yesterday (March 6).

“Flower of the Universe” appeared ready for the world when hip hop producer No I.D. tweeted a link to the song on Audiomack.com yesterday; the website removed the song several hours later.
Variety reports that the lyric video features the official acoustic guitar-driven version of the song. No I.D. shared the remix he produced, which features a minimalist electronic beat.
