See How Yara Shahidi Paid Tribute to Sade

The resemblance will spook you.

Published January 13, 2017

It’s no secret that Black-ish star Yara Shahidi embodies Black girl magic today, but she also knows how to pay homage to the queens that came before her, specifically soul singer Sade. The 16-year-old actress posted a throwback photo of the music icon to Instagram captioned “Queen,” and then posted a nearly identical pic this time of herself. Everything from the denim ‘fit to the side braid is on point!

Fans of both stars are going crazy via social media over the uncanny resemblance. A few even suggested she would be the perfect actress to portray a now 57-year-old Sade in a biopic.
