KEITH SWEAT RELEASES NEW SINGLE
"HOW MANY WAYS" FROM HIS UPCOMING ALBUM


R&B legend Keith Sweat’s highly-anticipated new single "How Many Ways" feat. K-Ci is from his upcoming 13th studio album. The single also features the silky vocals of K-Ci from the legendary group Jodeci.

"How Many Ways" feat. K-Ci premiered iHeart's Urban AC panel. The track follows the release of his 12th studio album “Dress to Impress” which was released in 2017. It debuted at #2 on Billboard's Top R&B Albums Chart and has over 14.2 million streams. His hit single "Good Love" from the album reached the No. 1 spot on the Urban AC radio chart.

From his classic debut album, “Make It Last Forever,”to his Soul Train Lifetime Achievement Award and over 30+ years of hits, singer/songwriter Keith Sweat's name is synonymous with R&B.

Not much has changed with this living legend, who has over 25 million albums sold and six platinum albums. The American Music Award winner's forthcoming 13th studio album promises more sexy ballads, smooth grooves, flawless harmonies and heartwarming lyrics from the R&B veteran.

A true music pioneer, Keith's influence is still strong and his music is loved by many. He recently partnered with 21 Savage and it'd be no surprise if they two collaborated in the future.

Last year, Keith took over Las Vegas, with his residency "Keith Sweat: Last Forever." He hosts his popular iHeart nationally syndicated radio show "The Sweat Hotel" where thousands of people tune in every day.

He has appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and has been covered by Billboard, Rolling Stone, The New York Times, Complex and more.
