Keith Sweat

Bio

KEITH SWEAT (born in New York - Harlem on July 22, 1961) is a R & B / Soul American singer / songwriter, record producer, radio personality and innovator of the "New Jack". Keith Sweat began his musical career as a member of a group from Harlem called "Jamilah" in 1975. Thanks to Jamilah, Sweat can hone his craft as lead singer performing at a regional level in the tripartite New York, New Jersey and Connecticut . The group was initially formed by bassist Larry Peoples, guitarist Michael Samuels and drummer Walter Bradley. Other members of the group who later joined include Peter DaCosta (voices), Joseph McGeachy (saxophone), Dwight Banks (trumpet), and Kenneth Varner (keyboards). After leaving the group in 1984 to join a solo career, Keith sings in the various nightclubs around the city of New York and takes the opportunity to work for the independent label, "Stadium Records". Keith only records a song for this label which is called "My Mind Is Made Up", wich is their 3rd best achievement ever, but for the absolute best, Sweat is credited as co-composer and co-producer of "You Are song the One For Me", the last ever recording by the "GQ" group. One of the group origin members was Keith's uncle, Keith "Sabu" Crier. Later in 1987, Keith Sweat is discovered by Vincent Davis who offered him a contract with his label, Vintertainment Records, opened in 1983 on the foundation of the first hip-hop and otherwise best known for the song's release "Pee Wee Dance" by Joeski Love in 1985. Vintertainment was distributed by Elektra Records from 1985 until 1990, date on which the label stops to operate and decide to purchase outright the Keith contract that may affect from now for Elektra . In 1987, November 25, Sweat publishes his first solo album "Make It Last Forever", of which are sold right away 3 million copies. The best hit album is the song that opens the "New Jack" title "I Want Her" (# 1 R & B, # 5 Pop), also nominated for the Soul Train 1989 as Best Song R & B / Urban Contemporary of the year, while the song that gives the title track becomes #2 on R & B charts. Sweat continues with success in the charts with his 2nd album called "I'll Give All My Love To You" (1990), which peaked at #6 on the Billboard Top 200 . The singles released in this period also include "(There You Go) Tellin'
