Keith Sweat released Playing for Keeps, his 13th studio album, on Oct. 26 via Red Music. The very next day, the Harlem soul singer was at MGM National Harbor for a show, and Chris Castillo got some pix.
Known for a string of R&B hits over several decades, Keith first broke onto the music charts with Make It Last Forever, his debut album, in 1987. The record went to #1 on the Top R&B charts, and the single “I Want Her” put Keith on the map. Since then, he’s continued to hit the charts with singles like “Twisted,” “Nobody,” and “I’ll Give All My Love to You.”
Playing for Keeps, the new album, features guests Akon, Teddy Riley, and Tank as well as newcomers Candace Price and Ray Fade. The record already spawned the hit “How Many Ways” feat. K-Ci, which reached #5 on Urban AC radio.
