About Keith Sweat
Keith Sweat, a Harlem-born Ru0026B singer/songwriter known for his distinctive "whining" vocal style, co-produced 1984/1985 singles by GQ and Roberta Gilliam and issued independent singles of his own ("Lucky Seven" and "My Mind Is Made Up"), but he didn't release his debut full-length for Elektra, Make It Last Forever, until November 1987. The album sold over three million copies, spawning the hits "I Want Her" (number one Ru0026B, number five pop), "Something Just Ain't Right" (number three Ru0026B), "Make It Last Forever" (number two Ru0026B), and "Don't Stop Your Love" (number nine Ru0026B). It was followed in 1990 by I'll Give All My Love to You, another million-seller, which featured the hits "Make You Sweat" (number one Ru0026B, number 14 pop), "Merry Go Round" (number two Ru0026B), "I'll Give All My Love to You" (number one Ru0026B, number seven pop), and "Your Love, Pt. 2" (number four Ru0026B). Sweat's third album was Keep It Comin', an Ru0026B chart-topper at the end of 1991 whose title track was another number one Ru0026B hit.nn Through the end of the '90s, Sweat's mainstream profile wasn't quite as high, but he remained a major force in Ru0026B as he recorded the occasional contemporary set, including Get Up on It (1994), Keith Sweat (1996), and Still in the Game (1998). Additionally, the first of two albums recorded with Gerald LeVert and Johnny Gill, billed as LSG, was considerably successful, and he also produced a handful of prominent '90s acts, such as Silk, Kut Klose, and Dru Hill. The following decade began with Didn't See Me Coming (2000) and Rebirth (2002), his final releases for Elektra. He moved to Atco for Just Me (an Ru0026B chart-topper in 2008), then to Kedar for Ridin' Solo (2010). 'Til the Morning (2011) was the first release on his KDS label. Sweat starred in the Centric channel's reality program Keith Sweat's Platinum House, in which he facilitated a turbulent Dru Hill reunion. Dress to Impress (2016) featured that group, as well as Silk, as guest collaborators. At the time of its release, The Sweat Hotel, his long-running syndicated radio program dedicated to Ru0026B from the '70s to the present, was nearing its tenth anniversary. In 2018, with a dozen albums behind him, Sweat issued Playing for Keeps, featuring guests K-Ci, Akon, Teddy Riley, and Tank. ~ William Ruhlmann u0026 Andy Kellman
