Attention Ladies: Keith Sweat Is Back

Mar 21st, 2008 // 7 Comments

hesgonnamakeyousweat.jpgKeith Sweat, the sexiest former stockbroker around, is back with a new album, and the thousands of women who have followed his twenty-year-long career are probably quite excited. Who wouldn’t be? During his late-’80s/early-’90s heyday, Keith Sweat was the man, with hit after hit, and although singers like J. Holiday try to pick up that loverman mantle, their attempts just don’t seem quite as filthy as Keith’s.

The best thing about Keith Sweat is that he’s grounded. Sick of artists trying to do something new? Stretching their creative boundaries? That sort of thing isn’t for Keith. He knows what you like, and he’s gonna give it to you.

“I’m giving the people what they expect from me,’ Sweat stated in a statement. “You hear other artists out here who make the mistake of trying to be trendy. They really try to keep up. I know people want to hear Keith Sweat. I’m conscious of the people who have followed me the whole time, since day one. I remember that I have a fan base and I’m very careful to give the people what they expect from me.”

His new album features a track with Keyshia Cole, but whose doesn’t at this point?

We also pay tribute to Keith Sweat with a few Youtube classic selections.

    Can we get Johnny Gil off Eddie Murphy for a new slow jam or what?

    These songs are my karoake gold.

    man, ‘i want her’ is such a freaking jam. love it.

  3. Dan Gibson

    @Maura Johnston: I should have mentioned this in the actual post, but one of my top ten live shows of all time is a Keith Sweat performance at the nightclub above the Kodak Theatre. That guy can entertain, plus he had a midget hypeman.

    Can you imagine if Gerald Levert was still alive? (R.I.P. Big homie) Encore of LSG’s My Body in every city, every night. Cause seriously, what else is Johnny Gill doing?


    Oh wait, nevermind.

    Awww shit. At least half the kids I know were conceived due to a Keith Sweat song. Forget the ladies, the GENTLEMEN need to be thrilled that this man is back.
