The “Sweet Love” award winning vocalist and songwriter shared this news with the world via her Twitter account last week.

Baker will be celebrating her 59th birthday on January 26th and she also shared that retiring from music was 1 of many goals she has.

She will still be writing music and recording but from the looks of her twitter timeline, you can tell she is enjoying beach life and quality time with her sons.

Baker’s last release was in 2012 (can you believe that?) when she covered Tyrese’s “Lately” and later her single “Sweetest Dreams”.

There were rumors circulating about a new project, but you might as well pull out those classic albums because Baker has gracefully bowed out of the game.
