Anita Baker Resolves Masters Issues and Supports Fans Streaming Her Music

Detroit songstress Anita Baker was awarded ownership over her music masters after outliving the original copyright contract that expired after 30 years.  

After winning this battle, Baker now supports fans streaming her music again because she has been given full ownership rights to her master recordings and original recordings of all of her songs. Baker had made a campaign for fans not to stream her music until she got what was rightfully hers.

Baker wrote on twitter on Friday that, “All My Children Are Coming Home,” and the tweet was accompanied with a photo of her first five studio albums, 1983’s The Songstress, 1986’s Rapture, 1988’s Giving You the Best That I Got, 1990’s Compositions and 1994’s Rhythm of Love 

 “Impossible Things Happen…Every. Single. Day,” she wrote.  

The Grammy-winning singer mentioned music artist Prince in her battle with her record label, Elektra, in the battle over ownership of masters.  

Baker gave fans something else to look forward too when she tweeted on Friday that a new compilation/box set of her music will be coming from Rhino Records.
