Released just before Valentine's Day 2015, Harlem Romance: The Love Collection consists of ballads from Keith Sweat's first five Elektra albums, 1987-1996, as well as "My Body," a major hit recorded with Gerald Levert and Johnny Gill as LSG. Due to its theme, the set isn't a proper Sweat anthology since it doesn't factor in the less-romantic ballads (like "Twisted") and uptempo hits (such as "I Want Her," "Don't Stop Your Love," and "Make You Sweat"). Sweat did excel at slow jams, and this includes some of his most popular singles, including "Make It Last Forever," "I'll Give All My Love to You," and "Nobody." ~ Andy Kellman
