If you are an Anita Baker fan and like many other, was dying to stream/download her music but couldn’t, don’t worry that pain and suffering has come to an end as Baker now owns hers maters and gives fans the ‘ok’ to stream and download her music once again. Earlier this year, Baker asked her fans not to stream or buy any of her music due to a dispute with her label. Back in March, Baker said that although she had fulfilled all of her recording contract obligations, she was still fighting for her masters to be returned to her.
In a series of tweets sent out over the weekend, Baker tweeted “All My Children Are Coming Home,” giving all of her fans and supporters the ok to once again stream her music. Baker also sent out a tweet saying “They no longer “Own”, My Name & Likeness.”
Baker referenced the late, great and legendary Prince during her battle with her longtime record label Elektra, when discussing her efforts in trying to retrieve her masters. On Friday, Baker announced that moving forward, her music will be released through her new record label Rhino Records, and that a new compilation of her music will be available to stream and download soon.
