AllMusic Review by

The Best of Keith Sweat: Make You Sweat compiles most of the tracks that made R&B crooner Keith Sweat one of the most popular and influential of the '90s new jack swingers. Along with Teddy Riley, Tony! Toni! Toné!, and Bell Biv Devoe, Sweat defined the forward-looking but history-mindful new jack sound that combined old-school aesthetics with hip-hop rhythms. Culled from all five of his consecutive number one R&B albums, the tracks here include such ubiquitous radio hits as "I Want Her" and "Make You Sweat" along with stellar singles including "Nobody" and solid album cuts like "My Body." This is steamy, funky, and sexy music that spawned myriad imitators in the '90s.
