Anita Baker Confirms New Music Will Drop in January 2023 Ahead of New North American Tour

Published: Sunday 20th Nov 2022 by Rashad

Queen of Quiet Storm Anita Baker may be celebrating her 65th birthday in January 2023, but the diva recently sent her fans into a royal frenzy with the subtle announcement she’s the one who will be handing out gifts.

See what we mean inside.

Anita has taken her fans on quite the rollercoaster over the last few years.

At the top of 2017, the 8-time GRAMMY winner announced her retirement and revealed no new music was in the works – a message that dashed hopes her serially-delayed 2012 set, ‘Only Forever,’ would ever see shelves.  Just a year later, she axed some of those plans and announced a Stateside series of spot dates that was met with so much demand it eventually spawned two Vegas residencies.

Throughout those dealings the R&B diva entered a legal battle for ownership of her timeless catalog, a fight that not only saw her declared victor but also encouraged her to head back to the studio to add new entries to the list.

The first fruit of those sessions is set to arrive in January 2023 (according to Baker’s official Twitter account).

And though she did not add any specific details about the new tune (i.e. title, release date, producer, parent album, etc.), the promise was certainly enough to get her fans excited.

The update came shortly after Anita stunned with the announcement she will be heading on her first official North American tour in nearly 30 years to celebrate the 40th anniversary of her debut album, 1983’s ‘The Songstress.’

    Lmaoooooooooo! 🤣 This old bag needs to set that walking stick down before it breaks and take a seat!

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 November 20, 2022

        Madonna looks great while this b**** look OLLLLLDDDD lmaoooooooooo! 🤣

      • Shayla the 🦝 💩💩🤡🤡🤡 November 20, 2022

        You mean the 64 year old with a BBL? STFU dummy and read below.

        In your own words:

        Shayla Queen™ 👑
        November 17, 2022
        She is truly beautiful.

        No, we don’t all want or desire to have great big backoff asses we could all trampoline off of in the circus. Some of us like to exude sophistication, class, style and beauty, not an animal that belongs in the zoo, clapping its ass cheeks together while hollering like a wolf at the moon…

      • Shayla the 🦝 💩💩🤡🤡🤡 November 20, 2022

        Anita is a natural beauty. Madge is a white fright with a butchered 🍑🍑🍑🍑

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 November 20, 2022

        That comment isn’t relevant here as it was in favor of the elegant Taylor Swift in regards to not all of us being low-class like most black women when you say she has no tits or ass.

        But wow, you stay stalking the Queen’s comments. Thank you for staying on my c****.

      • True Tea November 20, 2022

        So glad you called out that racist ANTI-Black hypocrite, lol

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 November 20, 2022

        I’m anti-black? No. The blacks that act that way are anti-black. That’s where you go wrong.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 November 20, 2022

        That response was also to your ANTI-WHITE comments regarding Taylor. And anti-whiteness in general. So I called YOU out. Hypocrite.

      • True Tea November 20, 2022

        You are ANTI-Black.

        But that’s okay because Black ppl were here 1st and will here in the end, and you will deal B*TCH!

      • True Tea November 20, 2022

        Calling Taylor Swift HOLLYWOOD is not ANTI-White.

        That’s called FACTS.

        Madonna with a FAKE assss and overly filtered face is also FACTS.

        Meanwhile Anita is 100% Authentic.

        Your FAVS could never.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 November 20, 2022

        Blacks were here first and will be left behind as human beings have since EVOLVED.

      • True Tea November 21, 2022

        Thank You for confirming ur views of Black ppl by stating blacks and humans are separate. Meanwhile you claim to have a Black mother, lol

        Her loss and clearly sh**ty judgment on her part.

    • Innocence November 20, 2022

  2. Shayla Queen™ 👑 November 20, 2022

    And that album she’s celebrating 40 years of was funded by Freeway Rick Ross, a convicted drug trafficker. What is there to celebrate? Disgusting.

  3. Shayla Queen™ 👑 November 20, 2022
