Now, why are they playing with the legendary Anita Baker?! The soul singer has asked her fans to stop buying, streaming and promoting her music while she fights for her masters! More inside…

Anita Baker is ready for war over her master recordings. And we don’t blame her!

After an illustrious singing career that has earned her 8 Grammy Awards, Anita Baker announced she’s now gearing up to fight for her masters! She took to social media to share with her fans that she has outlived all of her contracts, but she’s still being made to FIGHT for her own music. She’s not going out without a fight though!

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

The “Sweet Love” singer asked her fans not to stream her music until she gets her masters situation straightened out.

“Hello Sweetheart. Thank You 4 Sending Me, Your Love. But, let’s not Advertise *Spotify Streaming, which is, a Publicly Traded Company, with a 50 Million$ Valuation… but doesnt pay Artists/Creators what their Worth. ABXO,” she said in another tweet.

The 63-year-old living legend talked about how much money artists actually make from streams, revealing they’re still taxed on those numbers. She said artists aren’t making as much money as some fans may think.

”recordings Streamed & Sold are *Inferior & Missing Original Instrumentation. Recording Speeds have been ‘Sped Up’ Bootleg/Bogus ‘Vinyls’ R Not from Original Analog Mstrs. But, from Re-Processed (no Mid- Range frequencies) Digital Copies. Fans Deserve Better,” she said.

 

 

“Love, HugZ & Convo, Always Welcome on Our TL… I Am Just, No longer Free Advertising, for the [music] Theives in The Temple,” she tweeted.

Call. Them. Out.

Regaining control of her master recordings could be a long, hard court battle. However, we hope they don’t take auntie though the ringer. Elektra Records needs to honor her contract and give Ms. Baker what she’s rightfully owed.

Period.
