AllMusic Review by

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).
