As she recalled on Soul Train:

“About three months later on Chuck Baris dubbed me and also I said I was gonna be a superstar.. He said ‘We’ve never had an answer choose that from anybody, you deserve to pick whatever before document company you desire, whatever before producer or manager.’

She ended up signing via Columbia Records, and also “Got To Be Real” came to be her first studio hit. It was created by Lynn, David Paich (the lead singer of Toto), and also David Foster (who would go on to come to be a Broadway and pop production star). Ray Parker Jr. of “Ghostbusters” fame was the session guitarist.

The song hit number one on the soul charts and was certified platinum by the RIAA.

Does Cheryl Lynn have beef via Anita Baker?
tasiilaq.net Answer1 contributor
It appeared so for a moment on Twitter as Cheryl Lynn seemed pretty peeved that Anita Baker had blocked her without cause. The warm up had actually both singers trending heavily for several days, till the truth came out: Cheryl Lynn never had a Twitter account and also was instead being impersonated by an overzealous fan.
