"Rapture" was the breakout 1986 album for Rhythm and blues singer Anita Baker earning her two Grammy Awards in 1987. The album's first track, "Sweet Love" was a Billboard hit in addition to winning the Grammy. The success of "Rapture" (her second album) and "Sweet Love" brought well-deserved widespread attention to Baker. The album has sold over five million copies.

Track #3, and the second single from "Rapture", "Caught up in the Rapture," has been covered by The Make-Up on their 1998 album "In Mass Mind" and Marlin's 2004 album, "Believe".

In 1989, "Rapture" was ranked #36 on "Rolling Stone" magazine's list of the 100 greatest albums of the 1980s.
