Soul music great Anita Baker says is asking fans to stop purchasing and streaming her music, as she fights for her masters.

The Detroit favorite took to Twitter to say that she has outlived all of her recording contracts and that the masters should now be hers, legally.

Baker is talking about copyright reversion, which gives musicians their copyrights after 35 years.

Her catalog includes hits such as “Sweet Love,” “Caught Up in The Rapture” and “Giving You The Best That I Got,” all co-written by Baker.
