R&B Legend Keith Sweat Returns With Brand-New CD Just Me His First New
Studio Recording Since 2002

LOS ANGELES – Atco Records, an imprint of Rhino Entertainment,
announces the March 18 release of JUST ME, the first new studio album
from R&B legend Keith Sweat since his 2002 Rebirth set. The original
“new jack” hitmaker, who celebrated 20 years as a chart artist at the
end of 2007, produced and cowrote most of the material on his latest
project which features guest artists Keyshia Cole, and Athena Cage
(Keith’s duet partner on the million-selling 1996 hit “Nobody”).

The Harlem-born singer/songwriter and producer says he called his new
album JUST ME “because I’m giving the people what they expect from me.
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.”

The first single from the set is the sexy jam “Suga Suga Suga,”
featuring Paisley Bettis. Standout cuts include the hypnotic “Somebody,”
which showcases Sweat singing falsetto for the first time; the future
classic “Love You Better,” a truly memorable duet between Keith and
hitmaker Keyshia Cole; and “Just Wanna Sex You,” a hit-the-spot cut that
Keith says is on the album “to remind people of what I’ve done and what
I’m about musically.”

Sweat, who first broke through as a leader in the “new jack” of the late
’80s with the #1 single “I Want Her” reunites with producer Teddy Riley,
with whom he worked on his multiplatinum debut album, for the track “The
Floor”; former Kut Klose vocalist Athena Cage joins Sweat for a new
duet, “Butterscotch.” Producers for the album also include The
Ambassadorz, and Roy Battle; Sweat executive-produced the CD, his first
Atco release.

Since 1988, the multi-faceted artist has sold over 15 million albums
worldwide, racking up six #1 R&B hit singles, with close to 30 chart
entries, three multiplatinum, three platinum and two gold albums,
including Rhino’s 2004 The Best Of Keith Sweat: Make You Sweat. In
addition to his solo work, Keith also scored major hits with Johnny Gill
and the late Gerald Levert as part of the popular L.S.G. trio in the
’90s.

Currently the host of his own The Keith Sweat Hotel radio show, which is
heard in 21 markets nationwide, Keith, who tours almost every weekend,
regards his longevity as a recording artist as “a blessing that I don’t
take for granted. It’s surprising to me that my career has had such a
long life span. When you first start out, you hope people will hear the
music and you don’t expect to still be around 20 years later. It feels
good.”
