Anita Baker hasn’t made a record in eight years but fortunately, now that both her sons are in college, she’s ready to sing again. Her single “Lately” from her forthcoming new CD “Only Forever” was the highest debuting single on the urban adult contemporary music chart on “Billboard” in eight years. It’s also #1 on the smooth jazz chart. Surprisingly, the song is not a remake of the Stevie Wonder hit, but it’s a cover of the song made popular by Tyrese from his self-titled debut album. (He’s certainly happy Baker remade it, because he’s a co-writer on the song.) Listen to “Lately” here.
