3f08eddea76aabc5d27a3f966f85c188 Watch:  Anita Baker Performs Lately & Same Ole Love Live On Kimmel

 

R&B legend Anita Baker has much cause to celebrate these days.  For, along with a storied career featuring timeless hits like ‘Sweet Love’ and ‘Giving You The Best That I Got’, her 2012 remake of Tyrese‘s hit ‘Lately’ nabbed The Songstress her best debut ever and flew right to the top of the R&B charts.

Now, as Baker preps for this week’s Grammys (her version of the tune was nominated for “Best Traditional R&B Performance”), she made a rare appearance this week by Jimmy Kimmel Live to lend the first televised showing of her latest smash.

Also taking the crowd to task with a rousing showing of ‘Same Ole Love‘ from her signature ‘Rapture’ album, see Mama Anita at work below:


Fine wine!  One could never shower enough praise on the Queen of Quiet Storm for her timeless vocal stylings.  We are definitely anxious to add her forthcoming album ‘Only Forever’ to our collection here at TGJ HQ!

    “The Queen Of Modern Song” RETURNS!!!

    I absolutely ADORE Ms. Baker. Coincidentally, I was playing her ‘Giving You The Best That I Got’ album yesterday. AMAZING.

    If Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Lena Horne or Nina Simone were alive, I would have loved to have seen either one of them do duet with Anita. They would be SO proud.

      I agree…

      Those artists you mentioned would’ve gladly passed their torches down to her.

    WOW. Her voice is just like real butter. And her musicianship is like no other. She’s the epitome of an ARTIST instead of just an entertainer.
