I have been an Anita Baker fan since day one, song one, note one. I don't see anything to be confused about, but I see these people talking about they weren't able to get to her music before.
Well if you didn't get it the first time around, this ought to bring you into the fold.
As most of us have, she has bulked up a bit over the years, but that bulk seems to have only made a deep well of sound even deeper.
I have seen her live only once or twice and she was always a chanteuse going through her repertoire, a songstress as it were, fronting a faceless group of musicians in the background.
But now she is no longer just fronting a musical performance, she has joined the band. She is one of the instruments of the ensemble. And she ain't afraid to stand at the mic and blow a solo with those magnificent pipes of hers as she improvises around theme.
Let's just say Anita Baker is "up on some next level shit" here.
And the band and background singers are tighter than that dress she wearing.
But now she's got the nerve to say she is retired?
