Trends in African-American music changed considerably between Anita Baker's first taste of national exposure in 1979 (when she was a member of Detroit soul band Chapter 8 and sang lead on the hit ballad "I Just Wanna Be Your Girl") and her debut solo album, The Songstress, in 1983. While 1979's black music charts were full of large funk bands, standup vocal harmony groups, and disco divas, rappers and techno-funksters like the System were very much in vogue in 1983

Rapture is the second album by American vocalist Anita Baker, released in 1986. This became Baker's breakout album, selling over 8 million copies worldwide (of which 5 million in the US) and earning her two Grammy Awards. The album's first track, "Sweet Love", was a top 10 Billboard hit in addition to winning a Grammy Award. The music video for the track "Same Ole Love" was filmed and recorded at Baker's Keyboard Lounge.

Anita Baker's debut album entitled The Songstress was first release in 1983 and showcased the talents of this tremendous vocalist on various ballads, a number of which would go on to become bona fide classic "slow jams". Going against the trends of the African-American music scene, which was full of disco divas and rappers at the time, Anita's sound focused on gospel tinged, soulful pop, with a hint of jazz influence.
