Background: Giving You the Best That I Got was Anita Baker’s third album, and the album reached #1 on the U.S. album charts, as did the title track, which was the album’s lead single.

The album was certified triple platinum by the RIAA for sales of more than 3 million copies. gave Giving You The Best That I Got a 4 star review:

The sizeable following that Anita Baker acquired with Rapture proved quite receptive to the only slightly less appealing Giving You the Best That I Got — an album that’s quite similar to its predecessors. Though not quite on a par with The Songstress or Rapture, Best is far superior to most of 1988’s uninspired R&B releases…. Much of Baker’s music has contained jazz overtones, but on the Brazilian-influenced, slightly bossa nova-ish “Good Enough,” Sarah Vaughan’s influence becomes even more apparent — and indicates that she is making a tremendous mistake by not recording outright jazz.
