On Wednesday, Anita Baker took to Twitter to call out Apple Music for stealing her music.

The problem arose when the media giant tweeted an advertisement for her 80s classics … despite the fact that Baker claims they don’t have the rights to her songs.

“Dearest @AppleMusic… You have no digital licensing agreements 4 any of my compositions. kinda arrogant 2 advertise on my Twitter…” she tweeted out.

She then continued, “Piracy & attempted theft of my catalog is one of many things u will read about…¬†Happens all day long. Artists Create/TheyTake… …”

“Not even a battle… Small artists who need the revenue can’t really even say anything,” she added.

Well y’all, Auntie Anita is not here for games.
