Opening with Montell Jordan's "One Last Time (Break Up Sex)" and concluding with Jeremih's "Birthday Sex," the 21st volume of the Def Jam 25 series, subtitled Sweat It Out -- after the-Dream's song of the same title -- consists of R&B selections. While it would have been easy for the compiler(s) to stick to hits, there are plenty of deeper cuts and minor hits here among the songs that are well-known. Other tracks here include "All My Love" (from 112's Room 112), "Movies" (from Ashanti's self-titled album, technically a Murder Inc. release), "Rain" (from Case's self-titled album), "Caddillac Love" (from Lloyd's Southside), and "Thug Lovin'" (from Ja Rule's The Last Temptation).
