Baker is set to make fans of her romantic style excited with the forthcoming album 21st Century Love, which is her seventh studio album and is scheduled to be released on EMI's Blue Note Records in 2011. The album will feature the same classic baby making music that Baker is known for, but with a modern twist. Baby making? Anita Baker is the female Isaac Hayes! Rawr!
Baker has been sampled by the likes of Drake, so she certainly is happily embracing Century 21! Snoop Dogg and Tyrese guest on the album!
