Anita Baker Regains Masters; Gives Fans OK To Stream Music

It was a tall order. Asking fans to hold off on their routine doses of Ms. Anita Baker, but with good reason. 

It was in March that the legendary singer urged fans not to stream her music because despite outliving her recording contracts, the copryright reversion that she was owed did not take place. In other words, she had to go to bat to actually gain control of the masters that were rightfully hers.

“Miraculously… i have out-lived *ALL, of my Artists Contracts They no longer ‘Own’, My Name & Likeness,” she tweeted at the time. “And, by Law…30 yr old, Mstrs are 2B Returned, 2 Me Unfortunately, They’re gonna make me Fight 4 it. I’m Prepared, 2 do that. Please Dont advertise/buy them ABXO.”
