Anita Baker took to twitter last week confirming that she’s hanging up the mic and becoming a #BeachBum!

Even though we hadn’t heard anything from Baker since 2012 when she  covered Tyrese’s “Lately” and followed-up with “Sweetest Dreams” when they were thought to grace an album called Only Forever, the release date which kept getting pushed back and eventually never came.

Baker will celebrate her 59th birthday on January 29th
