DEF: Anita Baker “Giving You The Best That I Got”
Toledo, Ohio-born singer/songwriter Anita Baker has hit theÂ Top 40 onÂ Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart five times during her career. Two of those singles hit the Top 10, including her very first charting single, “Sweet Love,” which peaked at number 8 in 1986. Her most successful single, though, came in 1988, when “Giving You The Best That I Got” reached number 3. On this date that year, “Giving You The Best That I Got” hit that peak position, where it would spend one week.
Anita Baker’s biggest hit is today’s Daily Eighties Flashback.
