Producer, performer, songwriter, and music legend Anita Baker is back with a new album, new tour, and only The Insider’s Kevin Frazier was with the R&B icon as she prepared for her performance at The Hollywood Bowl last week.
After a much needed break, Anita is getting ready to release her seventh studio album Only Forever on October 23 through Blue Note Records/EMI. Anita shot to fame with her 1986 classic album Rapture and experienced critical and commercial success with her albums Giving You the Best I Got, Rhythm of Love, and more. Fans will be happy to hear her famous romantic style again, but with a modern twist. The eight-time Grammy winner self produced the album and is already making history with her new single Lately. Baker was the first recording artist ever to have an unprecedented premiere on Urban Adult Contemporary Radio for all Clear Channel stations as they played her single every hour on the hour. It was the biggest debut single in her career since her 1994 hit Body & Soul.
