Anita Baker Rapture on Limited Edition 180g LP

Anita Baker's mesmerizing voice first attracted national attention in 1975. That's when the 17-year-old - born in Toledo, Ohio and raised in Detroit - joined the Motor City group Chapter 8. Signed to Ariola, the act released their self-titled debut album in 1979, spawning the two R&B-charting singles: "Ready For Your Love" and "I Just Wanna Be Your Girl."

The former church choir member and legal secretary next took the solo route, signing with indie label Beverly Glen Records. A year later, Baker landed her first top five R&B single with the alluring anthem "Angel." Co-written by Baker, the ballad revealed the singer's talent for penning insightful lyrics about romance and relationships.

Segueing to Elektra in 1985, Baker catapulted to stardom with her sophomore album Rapture. The breakthrough 1986 release yielded Anita her first mainstream hit, "Sweet Love" (No. 8 pop, No. 2 R&B). The single was among several songs (including "Been So Long," "Watch Your Step") that Baker wrote or co-wrote for the album. Selling more than six million and racking up four top 10 R&B hits, Rapture earned Baker the first of her eight Grammys: Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for the album and Best R&B Song for "Sweet Love."
