It Looks Like Pop/R&B Star Anita Baker Got Her Master Recordings Back After All


It looks like pop and R&B superstar Anita Baker may have gotten her master recordings back from Warner Music Group after all.

Anita posted on Twitter today a photo of all her albums and wrote:
“All My Children Are Coming Home
CatalogParty popper
Impossible Things HappenWrapped present…

So Anita complained a few months ago that she didn’t own her masters and was being told after 30 years that she still hadn’t recouped on expenses from the record company. Her hits were many including “Sweet Love.” She asked her fans to stop streaming her music and buying her old music until she got control of the masters. From this Tweet it seems like everything worked out. Congrats!
