There was a time when Anita Baker was the hottest Adult Contemporary performer. She was all over Vh-1. Her "Rapture" album was one of my all time favorites. I could not get enough of it. And the best song on the album, by far, was "Sweet Love." Baker probably made R&B music popular again after it fell out of favor in the video age of the early 1980s. After this, you will see a blossoming of R&B music into the mid 1990s - until Hip Hop takes over. Yes, there is still R&B music, but not like what it was.
The video is hilarious. Baker really gets into her singing even with the lip sync is slightly off. Did I mention, she really gets into her singing - check it out:
By the way, the bridge, is one of the best in popular music. It may be my favorite. I also love the bridge in Wham!'s "Everything She Wants".
