Music historians credit Keith Sweat as the pioneer of the New Jack Swing genre — a fusion of RnB, soul, high-tech electronic funk, hip hop, and occasional elements of rap. It was his 1987 debut album "Make It Last Forever" with its biggest chart-topping single "I Want Her" that ushered in this magical silky and smooth fusion that catapulted him to become a global phenomenon and gave Sweat a nomination for a 1989 Soul Train Song Of The Year Award. Keith was on a winning streak as he released his second album "I'll Give All My Love to You" coming in at #6. His third release in 1991 "Keep It Comin'", featured R&B legend LL Cool J on one of the hit singles. In 1997, he was bestowed with the title of Favorite Male R&B/Soul Artist following the release of his fifth and self-titled album. In 2013, he was honored with the Soultrain Lifetime Achievement Award, recognizing the breadth of his achievement and contribution to soul and RnB music.
