Keith Sweat is an American singer-songwriter who began his artistic career in 1975 with a group called Jamilah, an obscure group based in the Harlem neighborhood of New York.
It was only in 1984 that he started solo, beginning by singing in New York nightclubs, clubs where he was noticed by the Stadium Records label. Label for which he will record in 1985 a title called "My mind is made up", single which will unfortunately go somewhat unnoticed.
Two years will pass before he signs in 1987 with a new label namely Vintertainment Records, label which allows him to record his first album "Make it last forever". And for a first album, it's a real success. The album hit the charts in particular thanks to the flagship single “I want her” which came out the same year, and to a lesser extent “Something just ain't right” and “Make it last forever” which, for their part, released the following year in 1988.
Success confirmed and especially amplified in 1990 with the release of the album "I’ll give all my love to you", an album which will be even stronger than its predecessor in the Charts. Album whose flagship single will be "Make you sweat".
Another notorious success a year later in 1991 with the release of the album "Keep it comin", which will mainly produce the single of the same name.
We will have to wait 3 years and the year 1994 to see the release of the following album "Get up on it", album which allows the artist to remain in the leading pack, notably with the title "How do you like it ?".
Followed in 1996 by the album "Keith Sweat", the consecration album which allowed the artist to achieve the biggest hits of his career as a single with the titles "Twisted" and "Nobody".
The album "Still in the game" was released in 1998 and confirmed the artist's status as a sure-fire of the moment. In particular thanks to the titles "Come and get with me" which came out the same year and "I’m not ready" which came out a year later in 1999.
A great adventure that will continue for the following decade and which will see the artist continue to garner major successes ...

1985 ... a first title which will go somewhat unnoticed. It is clear that there is still a little work to be done before being able to join the big leagues ...
1987 ... it took him 2 more years to join this famous big league. Here he gets his first global top hit. The first and certainly not the last ...
1988 ... it took him 3 years in the end to take off but now that it's done, it just needs to unroll. And to unroll, it will unroll !
1988 ... he quickly displayed first-rate Intimist skills. But also for duets. Starting with this one ...
1988 ... as much the year 1987 will have been short in titles, as the year 1988 will be the busiest. Three titles during this single year and especially 3 hits. A career now at cruising speed !
1990 ... here he begins the following decade under the best auspices. After having broken in during the 1980s, the 1990s will see him reach its best level ...
1990 ... now it's almost 1 Dance title for 1 Intimist title. An alternation of style that he masters perfectly and that he intends to renew in the future, that's clear ...
1990 ... the exception that makes the rule. All in all, the year 1990 will be more particularly placed under the sign of the register 'to emotions'. We take, we take !
1991 ... a change of year which rhymes with a return to the Dance register. One area that earns him significantly less than the Intimist on the Charts side, it is clear ...
1991 ... this one will do slightly better than its predecessor in the Charts. Anyway, the dynamic of success does not weaken and keeps the singer in the Elite without too much difficulty ...
1992 ... surprisingly, this very fine track will be combined with 2 but not a male-female duo but a 100 % male duo. And why not...
1994 ... after a year 1993 empty, here he is back in a certain form. Especially since this time the duo will be mixed, a mix that will benefit him much more than on the previous track ...
1994 ... he delivers here a title with absolutely sumptuous finesse which shows the full extent of his talent in this area. Simply MA-GIC !
1994 ... this time, he is assisted not by a partner, nor by two but squarely by three. And the result is at least up to the task !
1996 ... its biggest year. And once again in charming company, which does not spoil anything. This year he will obtain the 2 biggest hits of all his discography. Starting with this title which will remain as the best ranked of all. HU-GE !
1996 ... it took him 10 years to reach the Nirvana and get the cup, the real one. Anyway, the whole of his career largely holds the road and that is especially that the essential !
1997 ... the years go by but are not necessarily alike. The proof with this year 1997 which will not remain as its best side Charts and this despite a title which is far from unworthy however
1997 ... back to 100 % male duo mode. And as always, the result is nice but will not benefit him more than that ...
1998 ... the fact of allying with a size of the moment will not really change the situation. Even if the level of success starts to rise again, it will in no way equal that reached during 1996 ...
1999 ... this title will save the end of the decade. A new Intimist title of any beauty which literally floats in the air and which allows the artist to prepare the transition with the years 2000 in the best conditions ...
2008 ... a decade of 2000 which will prove to be much more complicated to manage than expected. The level of success in the Charts is in free fall and the singer will only do extra work. But the adventure was beautiful and this is the main thing !
