Baker was busy with fighting for the rights to her master recordings for some years, and in September 2021 she announced on her social media account that she had finally owned the masters for her first five albums which were “The Songstress” (1983), “Rapture” (1986), “Giving You the Best That I Got” (1988), “Compositions” (1990) and “Rhythm of Love” (1994).
The Grammy-winning singer’s last collection of shows happened in 2018 and continued through 2019, but the 2023 tour marks the first time she has been on a full tour since 1995 and it is also the first time The Songstress will be performing her classic hits live since winning back the rights to her masters, according to the press release. She is also expected to play new songs as she teased in her Twitter profile.
Baker received eight Grammys, as well as a lifetime achievement award at the 2018 BET Awards. She also has five platinum or multiplatinum albums and one gold album.
