Anita Baker says Chance The Rapper helped her buy her masters. Anita Baker thanked Chance The Rapper onstage during a recent engagement.
Anita Baker reclaimed her master recordings in September. She celebrated on social media but never disclosed Chance’s help. She posted a photo of her first five albums, The Songstress (1983), Rapture (1986), Giving You the Best That I Got (1988), Compositions (1990), and Rhythm of Love (1994).
“You should say hello to a friend of mine by way of the music industry and by way of helping me, helping me to get a hold and ownership of my master recordings,” Anita Baker said in footage circulating online. Chance then stood up and thanked the cheering audience for their praise.
“I saw one of THE greatest performances of my LIFETIME last night,” Chance wrote about the moment. “Thank you so much @IAMANITABAKER for being an inspiration and an icon to so many of US.”
